HELL:ON - RE-BORN
COMP MUSIC / EMI
Metal To Infinity
For the very early days of
Hell:On’s existence we have to go back to the Spring of 2005. Zaporozhye is a
place somewhere in Ukraine, a bunch of metalheads were ready to rumble with
their own way of music – one by one, all of them loaded with gifted skills.
Moon Records brought out the band’s debut entitled “Strong Enough” in 2006
followed by “Beyond The Faith”, a self financed EP that saw daylight one
year later on. In 2008, Hell:On was back for more, a new release popped up under
the title “Re-Born” through Comp Music / EMI. Yeah I know, we’re living in
2010 these days but I’d like to give this release a fair review because
they’re worth it, believe me on my word! As I always say: great Metal music is
Holding the jewel case in
hands, my first impression of the output allows me to say that the cover art
looks awesome – multiple pages thick booklet also looks very well done which
makes it all a pleasure to explore the inside printed information / pictures.
Based on the outside only, Hell:On’s “Re-Born” approach pure
professionalism but what about the music on the silver disc?
Well, first inner thoughts
lingered on in my mind after hearing a few songs only was that the band offered
their songs more than just okay. I only heard a few songs of the entire song
list and knew already that Hell:On did it just great. I’d like to describe
their style as modern Thrash Metal with minor slices taken from the Bay Area
Thrash Metal movement, the almighty scene you know! You will not hear high
pitched vocals – instead a brutal singer approach your ears in devastating
manners. Another great element that caught my complete attention were the
fantastic guitar moves. Superb riffs and shred guitar solo… brutality and
aggression hand in hand with awesome guitar skills delivering flammable riffage
/ shred tactics, be sure you won’t hear me complain at all!
Those who’ll buy the album
must have a heart for Thrash Metal in the first place, the ones who like their
thrash most of all in a technical way – well, they shouldn’t be hesitate for
one single second to order the album released in 2008 by a great band called
Hell:On, entitled “Re-Born”. As bonus stuff, they’ve also recorded two
video clips which makes this effort even more attractive to buy. take care of your
precious time and money useful, watch both of both clips definitely because
they’re really good!
To end up this discussion, I
will tell you all that Hell:On has posted their new EP called “In The Shadows
Of Emptiness” online. Four brand new works awaits you all so don’t be stupid
to ignore this opportunity to download them all for free. Hit THIS
spot and start fulfilling your Metal duty, you won’t regret at all guys! As
usual, the songs are hard and rough like hell… also good to hear the guitar
shred tactics are still in charge. Once again, four new songs for free – grab
on the opportunity rapidly people!
Hell:On is obviously a band
that deserves a fair chance to put their way of Metal on the international map
for sure. No matter from which country you are – start spreading these guys’
words of Metal right NOW!
