Human Remains - HELL

I damn near missed this one, and what an unforgivable crime that would have been. U.K. occult metal act and obscure NWOBHM fringe sitters HELL released multiple demos during 1982-1986, but never got over the hump. Many years later SABBAT vet, acclaimed producer, and dedicated HELL fan Andy Sneap got to chatting with a few ...

MACH II is a new Cleveland, Ohio band that plays a blend of hard rock and NWOBHM. So far, so good, right? And I'm including Cleveland and Ohio in the "good" since numerous great, often-underappreciated rock/metal bands have come out of both the city and the state.
