HELL – HELL (Sentient Ruin Laboratories 2017)

I’m not sure if this is a start of a new trilogy or something entirely different, but what I do know is HELL is back with a brand new full length. It’s an absolute monstrous slab of metal.

Much like Dante, listening to this album will take you through the many levels of HELL. The start of this album is very noisy and very sludgy. Opening track “Helmzmen” has some heaviness very akin to Primitive Man. For those of you who are not familiar with heavy act Primitive Man, first and foremost go make yourself familiar, and second of all, they have the weight of jumping into quicksand while wearing concrete shoes. “Helmzmen” captures that sound and feeling exactly. It is a track that lets you understand what slow heavy doom sounds and feels like. It’s a very enjoyable album from the get go, but it isn’t until the middle of the album that it really hits my sweet spot. The triple attack of “Machitikos,” “Wandering soul,” and “Inscriptus.” These songs are home to the best riffs on the album (in my opinion of course), and dare I say they are even kind of catchy? They also hold some of the more black metal moments that HELL does so well. This album holds all kinds of dreadful sounds. The longest track on the album “Victus” showcases a little bit of all of them. This track even has a string section that makes the track extra special.  The new music by HELL is emotional ride that is a very demanding listen that doom lovers will be thankful they spent the time with. It is very aggressive and very solemn. For the best listening experience we recommend you lower your head and just let it take you.

A lot of these songs are available for streaming, but we recommend that you take this album in as a whole from start to finish if at all possible.
