“Beyond the Boundaries of Sin”
What an awesome side project from Mark “The Shark” Shelton’s formally from the ultimate metal band from the 70s called Manilla Road. Hellwell is a Heavy/Progressive/Doom metal band. There themes are horror literature and dark doom. There currant label is with High Roller Records. Hellwell was started in 2011 and still going strong. Hellwell sounds a lot like a horror show metal band. They leave you feeling like something is coming for you. Mark is a master of metal and always leaves you wanting more and more. There were plenty of aspects about the album, like the Keyboards / Synth for example, that made the album sound like a mere 70s album, a sort of a heavier version of DEEP PURPLE meets KING CRIMSON while proposing reminders to the old BLACK ROSE band. One of my favorites is Hellwell – Eaters Of The Dead Take a listen on this youtube link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cU5OB_u4Xw8
I recommend going out and buying this brutally hardcore album if you haven’t yet.
