Noch sieben Tage, bis das lang erwartete nächste Album "Curse And Chapter" der britischen Schwermetaller Hell in die Läden kommt.

Grund genug für die Herren aus Nottingham, ein Live-Video vom diesjährigen Bloodstorm-Festival zu einem der neuen Songs, Darkhangel, zu veröffentlichen.

Kev Bower, Gitarrist, Keyboarder und zugleich auch Hauptkomponist, erzählte zu der neuen Scheibe "Curse And Chapter", sowie zu Darkhangel folgendes:

Following up 'Human Remains' was never going to be an easy task. The multiple 'Album Of The Year' awards, the amazing reaction from fans and the media alike - we always knew that our second album was going to have to be something quite special. And so it was with this in mind, that work started seriously almost two years ago, with myself and Andy Sneap laying down the first rough song studio demos - songs which the band would take out on the road, playing some of them at selected shows throughout 2012 and early 2013 to try them out on audiences first, before committing them to a proper recording. That proved to be a valuable experience, with the songs evolving, changing and developing into what everyone will hear on the finished album.

Darkhangel is written about Aleister Crowley's infamous attempts to raise the demon Pan in a Paris hotel room in the 1930's. This track evolved in exactly the same way as 'the Age Of Nefarious', with Andy helping to rearrange and structure my original music into something more coherent, and with David taking my original lyrical ideas and transforming them into a great story about one of the most notorious occult events in history. The intro soundscape features the voice of Crowley himself, lifted from an old wax cylinder recording.
