NWOBHM legends Hell are back from the ashes! Their last release was the ’82 EP White Lightning, which Metallica listed as a big inspiration in their sounds. Now they’re back with their debut studio album Human Remains. The band features famed producer Andy Sneap on guitars. Check after the jump for some comments from Sneap.
“The video we shot at Wingfield Manor in Derbyshire, U.K. It’s literally 5 miles from where I live and the band used the same location in the video for ‘Deathsquad’ that they shot in 1983. Director Kristian Havard – who used to be in the band Xentrix – is a friend from when Sabbat used to tour with them in the late ‘80s, so I called in a few favors.
“The band always were theatrical and out there image-wise. The great thing about HELL is we don’t feel pigeon-holed into any category: we just do what we want. We are not looking at what’s going on around us music-wise playing catch up or following the latest trends. Personally, I think it’s very rare that a concept comes across well on music video, so it was really out of ease to do a live performance. After all, this is really to introduce people to HELL.”
