ALBUM FIGHTING HARD
LABEL Inferno records
OUR RATING 86/100
Sicilian band HELLRAIDERS started playin’ in local pubs in 2013 and, after years of intense hardworking rehearsals, the band was out in 2016 with its first release, called "Beat To Death", showing a great potential with six songs forged in the old-school HM style,
Now 4 years later, HELLRAIDERS are ready to unleash their debut full-lenght entitled "Fighting Hard", out on INFERNO Records on March 30th, 2020 and available on CD, Cassette and digital.
"Fighting Hard" contains eleven tracks, including a cover of EMERGENCY (GIRLSCHOOL) and a double vs. of THEY LIVE, both electric and acoustic.
After instrumental RAIDER’S RAGE, opened by a cinematic intro, a great example of CLASSIC Hm, with roaring bass, pressing drums and a blistering solo, BEAT TO DEATH, is another right shot, fast and furious.
HELLRAIDERS is almost three mins of old school lessons played right on the modern day, while STARVING FOR YOUR BLOOD shows a more rockin’ side.
A new mad run in CURSED BY GODS, before THEY LIVE, less pressing but always on high level.
Anthemic KILL FOR BEER is another kick in the teeth, always enriched by top level solos, while PRINCE OF HELL is a song which opens new doors, more complete, with more melodic and thoughtful moments, before exploding again.
The title track is one of our favs, more lilting but powerful and contains again guitars’ solos to remark.
