Following up on 2015's critically acclaimed The Red Sect, North Carolina's All Hell return with The Grave Alchemist. Featuring twelve driving, raucous blackened thrash songs, the album also showcases a maturity and growth for the group who previously had their punk rock roots on full display. Many of the tracks here have a doomier, heavier sound, though the band still lets loose throughout the record.
The combining of genres is what All Hell has always done best and this time they've greatly stepped it up, incorporating more elements into their sound while maintaining solid, fluid songs. The band did however stick to a familiar formula when it came time to recording The Grave Alchemist. It was produced once again by Kris Hilbert (The Body) and mixed and mastered by Joel Grind (Toxic Holocaust).
Spawned in the dark hills of Asheville, NC in 2013 and influenced by a wide array of genres – from punk to thrash to "first wave" black metal to 80's deathrock and beyond – All Hell have relentlessly churned out their stygian works while spreading their volatile live show to eager audiences.
