    I just discovered this band a couple of weeks back, band formed in 1982 but due to long hiatus they eventually did reunite in 2008.
    They are an English heavy metal band, a reviewer on youtube called coverkillernation actually introduced me to this band thats how I found this group.
    They released an album in 2011 called Human Remains.
    Song from this album.

    Great stuff ! Ive mentioned this band a couple of times in the "LOUs A-Z of NWOBHM " thread and like you RiffRaff are rather excited by their new material.
    The original HELL had the mis fortune in losing their talented vocalist ,who sadly commited suicide. As far as I know they only made 1 single " Save us.." which promised so much !
    So when I heard the band name HELL being resurrected I was pretty gobsmacked....the man behind it ? Andy Sneap ex SABBAT guitarist.....who was a massive fan of the old band.
    Now that HELL are having some recent success ...eg playing metal fest "Bloodstock" only last week......it makes a SABBAT reunion less likely.:uh:
    A good friend played some tracks from the HELL album in the car the other week Sneaps guitar work was amazing !! :cheers2 Another album to buy ...

    Awesome to see another Hell enthiusiast :D
    I am keen to see what this band is made of, hope they continue to build on what was a solid first release.

    .....and here it is the original single on the low budget DEADLY WEAPON records. I have held this rare 7 inch record in my hands . I borrowed it from a drummer who was in HELLs singer Dave Hallidays previously named group RACE AGAINST TIME. I wish I had bought a copy...grrr never mind :bonk:
    If you dig deep there is also early demo tape recordings of HELL...sound quality is very poor.
    Love the re-recorded version of "Save us".. obvious.better production etc. I hopefully will see this band soon as they are relatively local to us. :grinthumb

    Nice post, Riff. I'm a huge Andy Sneap ( as a player and producer ) and Sabbat
    fan, which originally drew my attention to this band. They were going to make my 2011 list but you have beaten me to the punch my friend :cheers2

    ^^ Nice, I was thinking that the line up sounds like it has a lot of Doom Metal bands supporting ( judging by the monikers ). Your band sounds pretty Doomy and pretty awesome :grinthumb

    EDIT : I guess that's why the festival is called Dublin Doom Day huh ? lol missed that somehow
