Hell In The Club - Hell Of Fame

Recommended Posts



From Frontiers:

Italian hard rockers/heavy metallers Hell in the Club have announced the upcoming release of their new studio album, "Hell Of Fame" on September 4, 2020. Today, the band has also released the first single and video from the album, 'We'll Never Leave The Castle'. 

"With "Hell of Fame," we've tried a slightly different approach compared to "See you on the dark side". It is definitely more straight ahead album and I was honestly a bit skeptical about it at first. But as often happens, simple and instinctive thinking beat out overthinking. Expect a straight ahead, yet still addictive and exciting hard rock album with the familiar sound and trademark of Hell in the Club," says vocalist DAVE.

Adds bassist ANDY, "I'm very happy about the release of our fifth album. Obviouslyl I think it's a very good album, but mainly a very GENUINE one. We had a more direct approach this time and let the songs be more natural, with less frills than usual. I already love it as much as I love all our discography and I'm sure you'll like it as well!"

Hell In The Club is an Italian hard rock/heavy metal band who released their first album in 2011. "Hell Of Fame” is their fifth album and introduces their strongest material to date. Combining and taking to the next level the freshness of previous releases “Let The Games Begin” (2011) with the maturity of “Devil On My Shoulder” (2014) and “Shadow of the Monster” (2016) and the professional approach of 2017's “See You on the Dark Side” (their last album and most popular release to date), “Hell Of Fame” sees the band angling for the world stage. Recorded, mixed, and mastered by Simone Mularoni (DGM) at Domination Studio in San Marino, Italy, the new album is an explosive hard rock statement.

With DAVE on vocals, ANDY on bass, PICCO on the guitar, and MARK on drums, HELL IN THE CLUB will delight you, they'll make you dance, sing, and bang your heads with their songs. What more could you want? Rock ‘n roll is all about fun and that is what is on display here.

Featuring members of acclaimed folk metallers Elvenking, progressive metallers Secret Sphere, and heavy metallers Eternal Idol, HELL IN THE CLUB have earned their place in the scene over the course of four albums, but their music stands out as something totally different: they mix classic hard rock and modern sounds, heavy metal and party songs, fifties rock’n’roll, and anything in between. Who said metal can't be fun?

Last album was good but often a little too hectic for my taste. Too much going on, too many different parts. Too less room for smooth and great melodies but overall fun to listen to.

Today I heard the new song and that went pretty much into the same direction. Then I listened to the Itunes samples and it seems like the first single is one of the weaker songs on the album, for me at least. 

"Less frills than unsual" is what shines in these samples. That's exactly what makes their music perfect for me. Reminds me of crazy lixx here and there and that's a great thing.

Worst Case Scenario



Tokyo lights

Lucifer's magic

These snippets sound like 10/10 for me, these choruses are great.

If I remember right, the last album was surprisingly good. Both new songs sound like a pretty solid continuation. I'll be keen to check this one out.

Love Hell in the Club (and so does my teenage son)

That said, we both listened to "Nostalgia" and both though it was pretty mediocre

Have listened to it a few more times and it is growing on me a little, but it is nowhere near the quality of songs they usually put out

Like the first song much more..

Really enjoying this album,fav track is "Last Of An Undying Kind",they wear their influences on the sleeve as you can hear on "Here Today Gone Tomorrow"...it just screams Motley Crue,the production on this whole cd is great and they sound very good both musically and vocally,could prove to be my favourite full length by them over time...which is currently held by "Devil On My Shoulders."

I enjoyed this album as well.  I've thought most of their prior releases were pretty good but after two spins this is probably my favorite from the band.   The lyrics might not appeal to everyone.  Kind of a horror/fantasy comic book theme running throughout.  But I found it to work well with the overall sound and it made for a really cool vibe throughout.  I picked up the same Crue influence on "Here Today, Gone Tomorrow".  My initial favorites are "Tokyo Lights" and "Last of An Undying Kind" but even the tracks that didn't entirely grab me (Nostalgia and Mr. Grouch) had segments that I liked.  I can see this one making my top 10 for the year.

Guess I never really paid attention to this band, but I wish they would make more songs like that We'll Never Leave The Castle. That reminded me so much of the Killer Dwarfs ala Keep That Spirit Alive, which is cool on a number of levels, mostly that the Hell In the Club guys other bands are quite removed from that fluffy hard rock.


The other 2 tunes are pretty generic to me I'm afraid and didn't grab me like the first one.

    • After 30 + years, it's finally here.......I have just finished listening to the new CD from Metallic Blue Records by the Reno, Nevada band RAWKON.  Back in 2004, I received a 6 track demo cassette recorded by RAWKON in 1987 from a  fellow collector in Nevada.  He was extremely excited on finding this tape and wanted to share it with me.   On the first play, it immediately reminded me of another  awesome Nevada band, "ROCK BOULEVARD".   As it turns out, RAWKON consisted of one member of ROCK BOULEVARD and this demo cassette turned out to be extremely rare and sought after.   Fast forward 16 years later to today,  those 6 tracks, along with others recorded at various times of the band's life,  are right here on a silver pressed CD.  There are a total of 13 tracks here with a very nice production and impressive liner notes.   One quick note.....the first 3 tracks have a production that is certainly that of a demo and of lesser quality than the remaining 10 tracks which are excellent, so don't become immediately disappointed .   These first 3 songs are from the band's first demo which were more heavy metal and before they got a keyboard player.   Even though they don’t have the same production as the rest of the album, it’s great to have these songs  to form a more complete discography.   Starting with track 4, it all changes and the production is top notch.  The notes are filled with thorough,  in depth info on the band, it's history and with numerous photos.   Certainly a high quality, collector minded release.   Musically, there's something here to satisfy a wide variety of musical tastes.   Grinding rockers with good axe work,  some mid tempo melodic songs with nice keys, melodic melodies and some extremely smooth AOR ballads that will delight the AOR-sters a great deal!  If you enjoy bands such as ROCK BOULEVARD, THEATRE, FLYWEIL or DOKKEN, you will surely enjoy all 13 tracks that RAWKON has to offer.  My hat's off to Metallic Blue Records for bringing us this rare glimpse of melodic rock history......  
    • Back in 1990 we saw the release of the Nevada band ROCK BOULEVARD's "Self Titled" CD that became a collectors crown jewel.  Fast forward to 2020 ...... METALLIC BlUE RECORDS has released a new CD by the band titled "Stand And Fight"  which consists of tracks recorded in 1988-89 prior to their debut CD.   You read that right.....another full length ROCK BOULEVARD album with all new songs that has sat in a can all these years waiting to be rediscovered.   My hands were shaking and my heart fluttering with excitement when I received my advance copy.   When I pressed play on my CD player, I wasn't disappointed and the excitement was absolutely worthwhile......On this new 10 track release, vocals duties on seven tracks are handled by Jeff Kerr and the final three tracks feature Deland Voth's vocals.  There have been some lineup changes here and there......as a result, some fresh new sounds are part of the experience.  On several tracks, the listener is taken down some new melodic rock paths filled with keyboards and melodious layered songs that drive true melodic rock fans wild...  then swiftly taking you along another road filled with wild and crazy hair metal leaving you dizzy with delight.  The intitial style blends melodic hard rock that sounds more like US Westcoast melodic hard rock in the RATT school with a BON JOVI influence.  The remainder comes off in the vein of a more melodic SKID ROW (debut), with a touch of SILENT RAGE, LILLIAN AXE(early), JILLSON and LANCIA.   All of it with a top notch production, great backup vocals and excellent guitar work.  A huge thumbs up to Metallic Blue Records for making this one available after all these many years.   This is a "huge" release.  Along with the newly discovered material,  I was extremely impressed with the extensive liner notes, band history and photos compiled with this CD.  The liner notes alone separate an impressive release from an otherwise ordinary one.   Oh, and I should add, like all Metallic Blue Label releases, this is silver pressed and not a CD-R as is the case with many independant labels these days.    Although recorded prior to the debut, this is a worthy essential to add to your collection.   I should not fail to mention that the highly collectable self titled ROCK BOULEVARD, now titled "I Got What You Want, is also now available from Metallic Blue Records with 2 bonus tracks.   Another quality release that is silver pressed and contains an excellent 12 page booklet filled with band history and photos.   Don't wait till it's too late, get both of these great releases while they are available.   Surely they will become collectors items in the future.

    • From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to introduce Kreek, the new band fronted by ex-Bigfoot frontman Antony Ellis. This new rock ‘n roll machine from Ellis sees him keeping his foot firmly planted in the fertile U.K. hard rock scene from which he emerged. Kreek's self-titled debut album is due out February 12, 2021. Kreek was first formed in the summer of 2019 after Ellis’ had parted ways with Bigfoot, who would eventually disband. Impressed with Ellis’ vocal ability from their time working with his previous band, Frontiers reached to Ellis about continuing to work together. Ellis had already been thinking about putting something new together and was keen to create a great new hard rock band. He soon found a group of musicians in Nick Clarke (guitar), Lee Andrews (bass), and Seb Sweet (drums) who were ready to join him and thus Kreek was born. Produced by Dan Rossall (Passion, Revolution Saints), Kreek’s self-titled debut is now ready to be unleashed!
