Review

HELL were one of the most underrated bands in the history of metal. This 7” shows only a small part of their talent as they released lots of demo-tapes with many songs which cannot be found anywhere else. A-side is a great heavy progressive anthem with frenzy solos and unstoppable insane vocals from D.Halliday. B-side is a surprise -an excellent instrumental piece, truly one of the best ever! Very influential, musically and lyrically, for bands like SABBAT. HELL were way ahead of their time and it’s a pity they didn’t make it. Go for their demos as well -many tracks are even better than those in the 7”.
