Hell "III"

By now you probably know that i'm a sucker for the next band presented here and all things related to it. And i really could not let this one pass. "III" is the third part of Hell's trilogy, delivering two tracks around 20 minutes each of the most tenebrous and sulfurous doom.

In pair with Thou, Elu Of The Nine and few other acts, Hell are probably one of my favorite bands ever since i discovered them. They simply create this suffocating atmosphere almost as if its coming from the deepest pits of Hell itself. Filthy doom/drone that create this dantesque and archaic scenarios of torture, grief and death. Once again represented through the visual imaginary of Gustave Doré that in my opinion fits perfectly to Hell's sound brought here on "III" and of course in all of their previous releases. The big highlight goes to the track "Decedere" that after the infernal doom/droning experience "Mourn", it sounds like the ascension to the Heavens of all the lost souls trapped in this Hell hole. The angelic voices, something never heard before in Hell's record, suits perfectly in this registration. An amazing sonic experience and a remarkable record by the band. Grab one copy of "III" at Eternal Warfare.

  1. Oh fuckin yes! I saw the cassette go up a few weeks back and was hoping a rip would show up. I plan on buying the cassette when I'm near my cassette player in a few weeks, maybe I'll just order it and wait. Thanks dude :)

  2. My copy arrived a few weeks ago - listened through it so many times I almost warped it!

  3. Unreal. Hell is creating some of the best music right now. I love the incestuous relationship between Eternal Warfare, Pesanta Urfolk, and Woodsmoke records. All the bands from out east on those labels fucking rule.

  4. HOLY SHIT. This is the best stuff from Hell yet, in my opinion. Crushing, beautiful, fucking mournful... I'm blown away. I'll probably ruin this tape from overuse.
