HELL:ON Unleashes Shamanic Fury with Long-Awaited Album


In the tumultuous realm where metal meets mysticism, Ukrainian titans HELL:ON have emerged from the shadows once more, brandishing their latest auditory arsenal: "Shaman". Delayed by the harrowing specter of conflict that engulfed their homeland, this offering is more than just an album; it's a testament to resilience, a sonic battle cry echoing defiance against adversity.
With a primal roar, the band declares, "This album had to be released two years ago, but a full-scale invasion of Ukraine by Russia has put our entire life on hold. Nowadays, due to our Armed Forces, we try to go on living and creating." Yet, from the crucible of chaos emerges a masterpiece that captures the spirit of struggle, woven intricately within the tapestry of its soundscapes.
"Shaman" beckons listeners into a realm where death metal collides with shamanic mystique. Drawing from their Eastern roots, HELL:ON infuse tribal rhythms, oriental melodies, and ethereal chants into their signature atmospheric death metal. It's a sonic odyssey where guitars weave intricate spells, tribal percussions thunder like war drums, and shamanic vocals soar amidst the infernal cacophony.
Track by track, the album unfolds like chapters in an arcane tome:
"What Steppes Dream About"
"When The Wild Wind and The Soul of Fire Meet"
"Tearing Winds of Innerself"
"Preparation for the Ritual"
"He with the Horse’s Head"
"A New Dawn"
"I Am the Path"
HELL:ON's journey began in the fires of Zaporizhzhia in 2005, and their ascent has been relentless. Their lyrical themes delve into the esoteric realms of mysticism and philosophy, while defiantly challenging established norms of religion. Over the years, they've collaborated with metal luminaries like Andreas Kisser, Jeff Waters, and Andy LaRocque, solidifying their place in the pantheon of modern metal.
Having been nominated as the Best Ukrainian Metal Act and sharing stages with legends like Rotting Christ and Kreator, HELL:ON's influence reverberates far beyond their homeland. With "Shaman", they continue to blaze a trail through the uncharted territories of extreme music, leaving behind a scorched earth of sonic devastation.
For those seeking enlightenment through auditory transcendence, HELL:ON beckons. Embrace the ritual, heed the call of the shaman, and let the primal fury of their music awaken the dormant spirit within.
Unleash the beast within and join the ritual of HELL:ON. Let the shamanic journey begin.

Beyond its blistering riffs and thunderous percussion, it encapsulates the resilience of a band determined to thrive amidst chaos.
