Product Description

CD Description

HELL's Human Remains is without doubt one of the most interesting and important hard rock/metal releases in 2011.The band formed in 1982 from the carcasses of UK metal bands RACE AGAINST TIME and PARALEX, whose White Lightning EP was listed by Metallica as a favourite and which was subsequently included on the Lars Ulrich, Geoff Barton NWOBHM 79 Revisited sampler album. Despite over five years of constant touring, the band were cruelly overlooked, HELL were too different, too extreme, too musically intelligent and far too thought-provoking for the more commercial mid 80's metal mindset.The final crushing blow came when their long-awaited 1986 album deal with Mausoleum collapsed as the label went bankrupt, followed by the tragic suicide of singer/guitarist, Dave Halliday in 1987. The remaining members drew a line in the sand and stopped playing overnight. Fast forward to 2011 and the UK cult metallers are backNow with Sneap on Guitar, original founding members Kev Bower (Guitar/Keys) , Tony Speakman (Bass), Tim Bowler (Drums) and David Bower now taking over Vocal duties, the band are back with a vengeance.

5.0 out of 5 stars I bid you welcome to HELL! 16 May 2011
Format:Audio CD
I've been listening to NWOBHM now for a good few years; I'd like to think myself as somewhat well-knowledged on the genre of music (even if it was 15 years before my time). I've always liked HELL since listening to their `Save Us from those Who will Save Us single', and listening to crackly 8th-generation demo tapes that never showed their true potential, I always believed they were well ahead of their time. Now if you're reading this you probably already know the story of this album so I won't go into that, all I have to say is that potential has undoubtedly been released, and then some.

What we have here is a total labour of love; every riff, lyric, sound effect and solo has been crafted with utmost dedication, you just don't get albums like this, it's a fitting tribute to Dave Halliday. From the `Deathsquad' intro to my personal favourite `Devil's Deadly Weapon' we have a demonic slice of metal that encompasses pretty much every sub-genre this side of black metal (and even then, HELL are credited as a driving force of the devil-bothering genre), from the power metal of `The Quest' to the Doom-laden `No Martyrs Cage' they really do have a wide range to fit all metal fans' tastes, coupled with the legendary Andy Sneap's flawless production you get a modern, yet familiar record.

Purists may scoff at such a slick record but with this pack you get a bonus cd of the original demos and recording from back in the 80's and I have to say I'm glad I ordered this particular version of the album because those 8th-generation tapes that everyone and their dad has on MP3 are NOTHING compared to their master-taped glory here!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic metal! 26 May 2014
Format:Audio CD
This album (and indeed the band) has a history worthy of a norse saga. Almost 30 years in the making, Human Remains stands as a fitting testmanent to the awesome creative talent and musical ability of the band members. Though most of the tracks on this album were written years ago they stand today sounding as fresh and innovative as anything written today. Fans of Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Mercyful Fate and Dio will surely love what's on offer here.

Indeed one of the greatest achievements of this album is that there really is something for everyone here: fans of NWOBHM will love most of the tracks. The album also touches on symphonic metal and there are even a couple of tracks that touch on early-mid 80s thrash.

As for the band themselves, well what we have here is a collection of reall talented musicians. Too much of modern metal seems to be constructed on computer rathern that showcasing the skill of the musicians, however Hell are obviously incredibly talented. From David Bower's amazing vocal performance, equal to such legendary singers as Bruce Dickinson, Rob Halford and the legendary Ronnie James Dio, to the impressive guitar work by Sneap & co, listening to this album is a real treat for fans of real metal.

One final thought - this album is yet another illustration of Andy Sneaps incredible talent as a producer as well as a musician. The recording is absolutely perfect, the level of quality being that which one only usually sees with bands such as Maiden or Turisas.

Incredibly highy recommended for anyone who loves Metal and particulalry relevant to fans of Maiden, Priest, Mercyful Fate and Dio.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quirkily Brilliant 9 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have an extensive heavy metal collection and I have never encountered anything like this, I saw Hell perform first on a bill with Carcass and Amon Amarth, (Bleed From Within featured too but let's not go there!) and had never heard their material prior to that night. The adjective I'd use to describe this album, and the band in general is "Thespian", in terms of it's arrangements and David Bower's wonderful vocals, imagine Bruce Dickinson or Rob Halford doing Shakespeare. With songs about MacBeth, the Bubonic Plague and the abuses of children by the Roman Catholic Church, there's plenty to enjoy for a blasphemous English metalhead. The satanic material amused me greatly, don't take it too seriously!

5.0 out of 5 stars Album of the year/decade 20 May 2011
By Dan G
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you are a fan of any form of metal, go and buy this album now.

It has been 25-30 years since these songs were initially written and they not only still sound fresh and undated, they utterly batter most metal that is being released in this day and age. And I say that as a fan of contemporary metal.

There is no filler on this album. It is incredibly well paced from start to end and segues from song to song. It also encompasses many styles, without spreading itself too thinly or feeling disjointed, from the fast and frenetic headbangers ('On Earth As It Is In Hell' and 'Let Battle Commence') to the Dio-era-Rainbow-esque epic ('The Devil's Deadly Weapon')
Even at a fairly lengthy 66mins and 6seconds you instantly want to listen to it again afterwards.

Ultimately if you are a fan of the likes of Maiden, Priest, Mercyful Fate, Rush, and early Rainbow you will fall in love with this album. However, even if you aren't you should give this album a chance because it simply full of great SONGS.
