Complete and utter sonic devastation. This phrase perfectly sums up the immensely powerful musical force that is Hell Within. It simply cannot be denied that this aggressive young quintet of highly talented metal musicians is among the finest groups in the metalcore scene today. Hell Within craft hard hitting, aurally commanding compositions that are packed with intense emotions and an up front, driving forcefulness that is certain to appeal to any devotee of hard edged sonic mayhem. Since their formation in 1998 under the moniker Twytch, Hell Within has created a tremendous stir in the underground metal arena, beginning in their home state of Massachusetts and extending to thousands of metal fans on an international level.
Long renowned for their tremendously incendiary live performances, Hell Within have had the honor of sharing the stage with some of the biggest names in metal today including Disturbed, Shadows Fall, Hatebreed, Candria, Diecast and Sworn Enemy. Fans flock to the Boston based group's performances en masse to experience the jarring fret board wizardry of axe duo Isaias Martinez and Tony Zimmerman. Having assembled a rabid fan base regionally, the group hit the studio to record their first full length effort, the self titled "Twytch" album. Twytch entered the recording studio yet again in 2003 to lay down tracks for the 'Hatred' EP. With the issuance of this duo of hard hitting platters, the group embarked on extensive tours of the East Coast, gaining legions of fans through their dead on, highly entertaining live performances.
At this point in the band's career, the members decided that the time was right to move into an even heavier direction with their music. To complement this new direction, the group re christened the band with a moniker that would better describe the sound, focus and personality of the ensemble. From this point forward, the collective of artists would be known as Hell Within. Soon thereafter, the group attracted the attention of the most rapidly rising metal label in Europe, Germany's Lifeforce Records. Lifeforce has issued some of the most impressive metalcore albums from a roster of highly revered artists such as Trivium, Deadsoil and Hand To Hand. The label saw a high degree of potential in Hell Within and quickly signed the group to a recording contract.
The initial result of this partnership is Hell Within's dynamic and vociferous Lifeforce Records debut entitled "Asylum Of The Human Predator". This ten track metalcore masterpiece is emphasized by the forward thrusting rhythms of bassist Joe "The Ham" Martinez and drummer Brian "Bubba" Joyce. "Asylum Of The Human Predator" includes genre defining songs such as the enigmatically technically brutal "Godspeed To Your Deathbed", the wild wolverine assault of "Merchants Of The Blood Trade" and the standout track "Redemption...Is A Cold Body", a cut which is already garnering much attention in the relevant metal press. This groundbreaking record was recorded at was recorded at Prism Sound Studio (Tribe of Judah, Godsmack) with studio wizard John Ellis at the helm. "Asylum Of The Human Predator" was mixed by highly acclaimed knob turner Zeuss (Hatebreed, Shadows Fall) and mastered by Alan Douches (God Forbid, Unearth). This combination of recording and studio masterminds captured the essence of the Hell Within perfectly and the result is nothing less than pure, unadulterated metal mayhem. Distribution through the mighty Victory Records ensures that the release will be easily obtainable by metal lovers everywhere. With an intense original sound that will certainly be of appeal to fans of thrash, death metal, hardcore and metalcore alike, Hell Within have crafted an album that will stand as a monument in the hardcore metal annals. The stunningly brilliant dynamics inherent in vocalist Matt McChesney's singing are the centerpiece of an album that is at once voracious and superbly executed. When combined with the relentless nature group's instrumentation, the result is tremendous.
Watch for Hell Within to be featured very prominently in the metal press with a total of 200 print and 400 e zines to cover this astounding metal milestone. Hell Within will be featured in an upcoming issue of the highly touted Revolver Magazine, bringing their tremendous presence to thousands of fans nationwide in the hottest metal print publication in the US. The group will support this punishingly heavy new release with a US tour that will take the band to some of the best metal venues in the nation. This explosive tour will kick off at the most prestigious hard music event in the US, the New England Metal and Hardcore Fest in Worcester, MA. Undoubtedly, the band's loyal regional fanbase will turn out in droves to see their metal heroes grace the stage at this enormous event! Watch for Hell Within to annihilate listeners across the US in summer 2005 as they bring their brand of musical destruction to the metal masses.
