NEWS FROM THE TRENCHES
It’s been a while since our latest update, but we have been working our asses off and the fruit of all the hard labour will be crushing. We are entering the studio November 26th to begin recording our second album. Drums will be recorded at Antfarm Studio with producer Tue Madsen and it will be ball-crushing. Also, Andreas stepped away from Hell’s Domain back in April, but we found a more than competent replacement in the form of Kræn Meier(ex-Sacrificial, The Petulant) who has been delivering on all fronts and have contributed quite a bit to the songwriting on the new album.
Stay tuned and follow us on facebook and twitter where we will be posting news from the studio:by
It’s been a while since the last update, but we have been busy. We played an excellent show supporting Hatebreed on April 12th at Voxhall, Aarhus, Denmark. Thanks to all who crawled out from under their rocks and caught our show, we had a blast.
Songwriting for our second album has also begun and we are currently working on 5-6 drafts for songs and everything sounds kickass so far \m/
Next show is July 12th at the 7th edition of the Metal Magic Festival. We can’t waitby
We’re extremely proud to unleash the first official Hell’s Domain music video for the track “In The Trenches…”.
The performance footage for the clip was filmed by Markus Prämaßing at the sold-out show at Logo in Hamburg, Germany, where HELL’S DOMAIN played main support for Swedish death metallers DARK TRANQUILLITY.
The video displays the primal, raw aggression of Hell’s Domain live and should tear you a new one if you play it loud enough!!!by
So … time for a recap of the most important year for Hell’s Domain so far. So much has happened!!!
Most importantly, 2013 saw the release of our debut album HELL’S DOMAIN on September 23rd: The result of several years of songwriting and hard work finally on cd, digipack, download and Vinyl.
The reception has been outstanding so we couldn’t be more pleased \m/
We also did more shows in 2013 than any other year in the bands existence:
3 sold out shows in Germany with Dark Tranquillity, Royal Metal Fest, Midwinter Meltdown, anti x-mas metal bash and the album release show at backstage with support from Battery … all awesome!!!
We are currently gathering ideas for new songs and booking a few shows for 2014. So far we are confirmed for the Metal Magic Festival in July. Hope to see you there!
Lastly, we would like to send our hails and gratitude to the following:
Tue Madsen, Jakob Schultz, Corrado Breno and Punishment 18 Records, Geppe and NIGHT of the VINYL DEAD recs SRHC, Dark Tranquillity, Ed Repka Illustration, Jeff+Peter, Steffen Rasmussen, KODA, Dansk Musiker Forbund – DMF, ROSA and our families, friends and fans for all their support.

An important piece of paper was signed yesterday and we have very cool news coming up very soon … untill then: Thrash ’till Death!!!
The recording is almost done … only vocals on a bunch of songs and a few leads are left.
A bit of backup vokills were recorded at a rehearsal for the Midwinter Meltdown concert we’re playing Saturday February 2nd.
Lars has finalized the remaining basstracks and it sounds outstanding!!! Rhythm guitar remains to be recorded for two tracks and then the last leads and vokillls, and then we are ready for mixing \m/
We’re currently wrapping up the bass tracking for the album. Klas has done an outstanding job laying down some low end and be sure that we wont pull an “…and justice for all” on him.
Andreas and Bjørn are more than halfway done with rhythm guitar and have started tracking lead guitar. Alex has vokills down for two songs also so the album is slowly taking shape.
It will be a ballbreaker so consider yourself warned!!!by
