HELL – single release + show in Sweden! - 2011-03-04 08:00

2011-03-04 08:00 - HELL's Human Remains is without doubt one of the most interesting and important hard rock/metal releases in 2011.

The band formed in 1982 from the carcasses of UK metal bands RACE AGAINST TIME and PARALEX, whose ‘White Lightning’ EP was listed by Metallica as a favourite and which was subsequently included on the Lars Ulrich, Geoff Barton ‘NWOBHM ’79 Revisited’ sampler album.

Despite over five years of constant touring, the band were cruelly overlooked, HELL were too different, too extreme, too musically intelligent and far too thought-provoking for the more commercial mid 80's metal mindset.
The final crushing blow came when their long-awaited 1986 album deal with Mausoleum collapsed as the label went bankrupt, followed by the tragic suicide of singer/guitarist, Dave Halliday in 1987. The remaining members drew a line in the sand and stopped playing overnight.
Fast forward to 2011 and the UK cult metallers are back…

Producer Andy Sneap, a lifelong friend of the band who was also was taught guitar by original singer/guitarist Halliday has painstakingly rerecord 10 Hell classics with the three surviving members.
Now with Sneap on Guitar, original founding members Kev Bower (Guitar/Keys) , Tony Speakman (Bass), Tim Bowler (Drums) and David Bower now taking over Vocal duties, the band are back with a vengeance.

Tomorrow, March 4th 2011 sees Nuclear Blast release the first single "Save Us From Those Who Would Save Us“ worldwide digitally and on vinyl. The band has also shot a video for "On Earth as It Is In Hell" the single B Side which shall be released shortly.

Hell are now also confirmed for SWEDENS ROCKSTADF: FALUN FESTIVAL in Falun, Sweden on June 4th

The debut album HUMAN REMAINS, which is already gaining mass appraisal from international media will be release on the 13th of May 2011 worldwide via Nuclear Blast.

The quotations speak for themselves.

A New Wave Of British Heavy Metal. If you want the blueprint of finest true metal….this is it”
This will be one of the landmark metal albums of the second decade of the 21st century. It is true metal and stunning.
MALCOME DOME / METAL HAMMER / CLASSIC ROCK UK

Theatrical vocals to die for, timeless heavy metal riffs to kill for and a production to swear by. A guarantee that HUMAN REMAINS will end up on a ridiculous of “Best of 2011” lists
THOMAS VÄÄNÄNEN / SWEDEN ROCK

A Metal masterpiece! I expected a good album from what i had heard before - but not such a metal masterpiece! it sits perfectly between its instantly identifiable NWOBHM roots and more modern, but always classic heavy metal. goosebumps all over!
GÖTZ KÜNEMUND / ROCK HARD GERMANY

"Human Remains" is the essence of Metal - the perfect mix of Mercyful Fate, Rush and Judas Priest. One of the best debuts of the last 25 years!
MICHAEL KOHSIEK / ROCK HARD GERMANY

"Human Remains" is probably one of the best British Metal albums, since "The Number Of The Beast". This is the album, which you will surely hear... in hell.
BART GABRIEL / HARD ROCKER (PL)
