West Of Hell Streaming Entire New Album

Vancouver, BC act West of Hell’s new full-length album, "Spiral Empire," hits stores today. The record is available for purchase now at iTunes, Amazon, and other digital retailers, but if you order your copy of "Spiral Empire" from Reversed Records, you will instantly receive the album as a digital download as well. For those that want to listen before they buy, the record is also available for streaming at the band’s official Soundcloud page for a limited time. The album can also be heard in the player below.

Bassist Jordan Kemp states, “In this band, we all write, contributing to each other’s ideas and hashing out riffs. Hell, we'll re-write something three or four times until we're all satisfied its 100 percent killer! That's why there's not a dull moment on this record. It sounds unique yet classic. Makes me wanna drink beer and party! Play it fuckin' LOUD!”

“This is an album that has surpassed expectation. Fuelled by beer and anger, this record is an answer to the castrated state of popular music. It is truly an exercise in dragging tradition and force into a soulless, dying music industry,” states vocalist Chris “The Heathen” Valagao.

“Listening to this album from start to finish, I'm totally stoked with the whole thing,” adds Kemp. “It's not like one of those albums that all the songs start sounding too alike. When you put it on, you'll be banging your head right through till it’s done!”

"Spiral Empire" was recorded at The Factory Studios in Vancouver and is produced by Juno Award winning engineer Rob Shallcross (Strapping Young Lad, GWAR, Zimmers Hole, Fear Factory). West of Hell is currently on the road in Canada, with upcoming dates as follows:
