Horror-based metal band, From Hell return May 22nd with their latest concept album titled "Rats & Ravens." Through ten tracks, From Hell tell the story of a corpse that wakes up in hell and finds that he must go back to earth to retrieve his soul from another body and bring it back to hell. The band kick things off with the deep, dark riffs and pounding rhythm of "They Come At Night." The lyrics come bleeding out, as singer/guitarist Aleister Sinn delivers the perfect vocal tone to this evil story. From Hell keep the intensity on full blast with the aggressive attack of "Lilium," before quicken the pace of the album with the high-powered roar of "The Witch." Their sound turns toward doom metal on the screams of "Don't Cry For Help," while "Room For One" carries a classic, British Heavy Metal sound that flows into the same vein as Judas Priest and early Iron Maiden. From Hell finish their new album with the nearly nine-minute heavy metal epic "Body Rats" and the chaotic conclusion of "Am I Dead."
