After a year of honing its malefic craft, North Carolina’s blackened thrash/punk act All Hell has returned with a new volatile offering. “The Red Sect” marks a crossroads for the band; the straightforward aggression of the debut (“The Devil’s Work,” 2014) blends with a seething, menacing atmosphere – further enhanced by the mixing and mastering skills of Toxic Holocaust mainman Joel Grind – creating an album that is dark, vicious, and compelling. The record’s ten tracks weave a frightful narrative of ritual possession, vengeance, and revolt. The band has further explored and defined their sound, once again drawing influences from a wide array of genres such as thrash, black metal, deathrock, and punk.
Since the debut release, All Hell has been busy sowing chaos through live performances while crafting the sophomore effort. Playing and touring throughout the Southeast, the band has quickly developed a following and earned a reputation as one of the most intense and lethal live acts in the region, having shared the stage with bands like 1349, Black Tusk, Ghoul, Skeletonwitch, and Toxic Holocaust.
With a relentless drive, growing support, and two albums under their belt, All Hell pushes forward, intent on spreading its hellish music and intense live experience to as many people as possible.
“The Red Sect” will be released on October 16th via Horror Pain Gore Death Productoons Records. The track listing for the album is:
2. Mass Possession
4. Blood for the Baron
5. Graveyard Dust
6. In My Command
8. The Unseen
9. Funeral Feast
10. The Red Sect
