VHOD is both a collective and a compartment within the collective and represents the many musical bodies of work produced by Christopher Ian Shaver.  The musical directions are sometimes blurred between the various branches of the collective but most commonly the works are rooted in metal and its various genres.

The collective, in Chris' view, was born in 1989 and has been developed using various projects throughout the years.  The VHOD mission statement is to explore that which is necessary to be explored in both musical and philosophical terms, unwaiveringly.


Currently at work on a full length TRANSIR album, slated for digital release in November 2020.  EDIFICE songs are also being developed for a release in early 2021.  VHOD singles are forth coming followed by a full length in spring 2021.

Most current release:

TRANSIR - The Valley Of The Teeth
