Hell (UK) - Hell Demo 1982

In 1982, the NWOBHM was still going strong. No one knew that within the next year, a frightening new force out of America would render them obsolete. While America's young speed/thrash bands were immensely influenced by the British bands before them, the adrenaline fueled yanks would ultimately burn their idols and scald the hand of metal forever. Good thing for us, metal loves scars...and the NWOBHM left one cool ass scar.

Hell was a band out of Nottingham. They're best known for being the precursor to the UK's own thrashers Sabbat. I really like this demo. The band really goes for it and a makes some interesting attempts to be evil. The weird intro banter sounds as if members of Monty Python had a few pints discussing the work of Aleister Crowley. Now that's metal.

The demo is ripped from cassette...it's noisy, boomy, and has a few dropouts. Though not bad for a nearly 30 year old tape.
