HELL was formed in 1982 from the remnants of British metal bands "Race Against Time" and "Paralex", but despite more than five years of touring HELL was overlooked by music journalists who simply did not recognize the greatness of their music. The final blow came with their long-awaited record deal with Mausoleum collapsing as the label simply went out of business, followed by guitarist Dave Halliday's tragic death in 1987. At the front row of all the band's concerts stood then teenager Andy Sneap, who even learned to play guitar by Halliday just before he formed a band called Sabbat.

Later in his career Sneap went on to produce albums for the likes of Megadeth, Arch Enemy and Nevermore, to name a few. Today, Andy is a permanent member of HELL and is naturally responsible for producing the band's highly anticipated debut album, released on May 13, 2011 by major record label Nuclear Blast. HELL has now made a new recording of 10 classic songs from the '80s. Today, March 4, their first single "Save Us From Those Who Would Save Us" is being released, and the band is anticipated to have a brilliant career, at least if you sk their label "
