The Shiva Hypothesis (TSH) is a collective of musical deviants hailing from the Twente region in the Netherlands. TSH has been pursuing its own brand of dark and extreme metal with relentless fervour and mad perseverance since 2012.

TSH can be sonically categorized as a mix of black metal aesthetics, occasional aggressive outpourings in the vein of 90’s death/thrash metal and some strong atmospheric touches. The band strives for a mystic, gloomy, murky sound (with a slight hint of madness) to underline the main theme: destruction and creation. The band’s lyrics incorporate elements of comparative religion, philosophy and mythology.

Musically, TSH has drawn inspiration from the works of such bands as Behemoth, Emperor en Gorgoroth, as well as numerous non-metal artists like Fields of the Nephilim and Huun-Huur-Tuu.
