Helldown – The Unnamed

HELLDOWN continue to climb through the ranks and are braced to release their
blistering sophomore EP, In Deaths Hands, out everywhere on Friday 17th
January. The rising thrash metallers have just a stunning new track, The

Drawing from a powerful kinship and liking for the back catalogues of
Slayer, Thin Lizzy, Pantera, Judas Priest, and Metallica, HELLDOWN hurl out
gratifying thrash metal layered with true groove and bite. Originally formed
back in 2013, the foursome had some personnel changes that briefly derailed
their early trajectory. Now with a stable line-up consisting of blood
brothers Ben and Matthew Evans (respective Bassist/Vocalist and Rhythm
Guitarist), aided by Ross Thomas (Drums) and with Lewis Larkman (Lead
Guitarist), the band’s reach is vast. 2016’s debut self-titled EP, along
with 2017’s single, The Watchers, have helped to create a strong buzz for
the riff slingers throughout the underground. Live performances with the
likes of Phil Campbell, Toxic Holocaust, Exhumed, Acid Reign, Triaxis,
Malignancy and Anti-Clone, to name just a few, have also greatly assisted in
increasing the band’s stock.

With a growing live reputation, bolstered by the group’s newfound
partnership with High Tide Booking Agency, HELLDOWN headed to the studio to
craft their next EP, In Deaths Hand. The band comment about the record:
“These four tracks are no strangers to our live sets. We were always told
that these songs are pinnacle moments in our set, and that they had to be
recorded. We went into the studio wanting an aggressive and relentless
sounding record. After the final mix, we felt we achieved something that
stands out in the crowd. There is something for everyone in this EP. We’re
really happy with the way it has turned out.”. Rightly so, the EP is a prime
slab of thrash metal, showcasing four mammoth beefy cuts. The record ejects
potent sharp riffs and aggressive hollering that spews straight out from
your speakers. Entwined with unrelenting energy and sophisticated dynamics,
the band have created an EP that is destined to leave its mark.
