"The legend holds that a team of Russian scientists purportedly led by an individual named "Mr. Azzacov" in an unnamed place in Siberia had drilled a hole that was nine miles (14.5 km) deep before breaking through to a cavity. Intrigued by this unexpected discovery, they lowered an extremely heat tolerant microphone, along with other sensory equipment, into the well. The temperature deep within was 2,000 °F (1,100 °C) — heat from a chamber of fire from which (purportedly) the tormented screams of the damned could be heard..."

Of course this relatively well-know story is complete BS, since such a deep borehole never existed anywhere in Siberia, and the "recording" turned out to be a soundtrack to some old horror movie. There was, however, a very deep borehole near Murmansk (not in Siberia), whose chief engineer once mentioned an observation of a very strange noise and something resembling an explosion (which was recorded not with a microphone, but with a geophone, though). This project also gave a lot of very unexpected scientific data, but nothing too "mystical" (except for that incident with an unidentified noise, which probably became the source for that "well to hell" hoax).

Siberian Hell Sounds are a 3-piece band from Brisbane, Australia (some other sources say they're from California, though), named after the aforementioned legend. Their primary influences are Pig Destroyer, Left for Dead and Slayer, and at least one of their members is a massive fan of my blog:

"Here's a link to our bandcamp with both our releases (the PCPEP from Jan, 2014 and the Siberian Hell Sounds EP from Sep, 2013):
Hope it inspires a church burning or two..."
