"We'd like to thank everyone that supported us over the years and made this band happen. It's been a long hard road, but the most enjoyable experience of our lives. All across the U.S. this band traveled, met tons of great people and experienced things that we will cherish forever. Hell Within released 3 records, had 2 recording contracts, did countless tours and shared with so many people something that is so precious to us.
"To all the band members that we ever played with, to our record labels Lifeforce and Thorp records, we will never forget you guys. From our 1st manager Cynthia Donovan to our latest manager Damon Moreno we thank you for dedicating so much time to us. Then to all the great companies like Jagermeister, Dean Guitars, B.C. Rich, Mesa Boogie, GHS, D'Addario etc. that endorsed us we thank you so much for the support. We'd like to thank our family and friends for always being there for us through the good and tough times. I could go on and on, because the list never ends, just too many people and memories to count.
"Please come out to the 11/11/11 Village Smoke House show and for one last time, help us make one more memory that everyone will never forget."

Just a month after Hell Within vocalist Matt McChesney joined The Autumn Offering, and Hell Within subsequently announced that he was still a member of their band, the group has indeed announced the addition of a replacement. Now joining Hell Within on vocals is Brian Roy of Massachusetts. Here's a statement from the band:
Hell Within is proud to announce that we have a new singer. We would like to welcome Brian Roy as the new vocalist of Hell Within. Tony, Isaias, Joe and Derek are still friends and brothers with Matt as we always have been. We wish him the very best with his new project and future endeavors. Brian will be performing with Hell Within for their East Coast Tour making his debut on 7/28 at The ADC Center in Southbridge MA. Thanks to everyone for the support, we look forward to seeing you on the road."
Despite a posting on The Autumn Offering's official website www.theautumnoffering.com yesterday which listed their new vocalist Matt McChesney as having left his other group Hell Within to join the band, it appears that is not the case. In a statement released today, Hell Within had the following to say:
"To set the record straight Matt McChesney is not leaving Hell Within. Matt is helping The Autumn Offering out in a bad situation. He is only recording an album for the The Autumn Offering. They have no singer and they need to get a record done. It was wrong of them to post "formerly of Hell Within"; he is not formerly of Hell Within, Matt is in Hell Within. Hell Within is Matt's main band and The Autumn Offering is a side project. Hell Within will be touring with Matt on an East Coast run that is shaping up for August in support of their new record "Shadows Of Vanity". Hell Within is not looking for another vocalist. Hell Within with Matt as the lead man will see you soon."
The Autumn Offering have officially announced their new lead singer to be Hell Within frontman Matt McChesney. The band are holed up writing new material with McChesney in anticipation of a Fall release through Victory Records. For more information head to the band's website, http://www.theautumnoffering.com.
Lifeforece Records has posted brand new songs online From Hell Within and Raintime. You can check out Hell Within's "Lay Down Your Arms" and Raintime's "Rolling Chances" on LifeForce Records' MySpace page.
Lifeforce Records is previewing the title track from HELL WITHIN’s upcoming full length record “Shadows Of Vanity,” available in Europe May 21st, 2007.
This will be the first record to showcase the arrival of their new drummer Derek Jay after Brian "Bubba" Joyce’s departure late last year. “Shadows Of Vanity” was tracked with longtime producer John Ellis and diligently mixed by Mark Lewis of Audio Hammer Studios (TRIVIUM, BURY YOUR DEAD, GOD FORBID) and will be mastered by Tom Morris @ Morrisound.
The album will also see acclaimed graphic designer and artist Paul Romano (MASTODON, TRIVIUM, THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD) handling the art for “Shadows of Vanity!”
In other news, on the heels of finishing up a full US tour with Victory Record’s The Autumn Offering, HELL WITHIN guitarist Tony Zimmerman will now be endorsed by Dean Guitars.
Lifeforce recording artists HELL WITHIN have completed their new record “Shadows Of Vanity.” The album was tracked with longtime producer John Ellis and diligently mixed by Mark Lewis of Audio Hammer Studios (TRIVIUM, BURY YOUR DEAD, GOD FORBID) and will be mastered by Tom Morris @ Morrisound. “Shadows of Vanity” is set to street May 18th (G/A/S, SE), May 21st (Europe). The album will also see acclaimed graphic designer and artist Paul Romano (MASTODON, TRIVIUM, THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD) handling the art for “Shadows of Vanity!”
Tony Zimmerman from HELL WITHIN had this to say about the completion of their new record:
“Long time no speak. Well, here is what’s been going on with Hell Within. The new Hell Within album “Shadows of Vanity” is done being recorded and mixed. We can’t wait for everyone to hear it. The album sounds amazing and we are very proud of it. Now all that’s left is for it to be mastered. That will be done by the beginning of Feb 07 and the art work will be done in Feb 07 as well. We’re shooting for a mid May 07 release for the album, so in May get to the stores and buy it! The other thing we have going on is a tour with our good friends The Autumn Offering and our soon to be friends Autumn Black. The Tour will start 3/1 and take us until the end of the month. It will cover the East Coast and go over to TX then up the middle of the country. To get all the details go to our shows page, there are more dates being added every day. Everyone get your asses out to see us when we rape and pillage your town.”
Hell Within will be entering the studio to record their Lifeforce Records debut. The album, entitled "Shadows of Vanity," is due out in early 2007.
Guitarist Tony Zimmerman made the following statement:
"For the past 7 months we've been busy writing and getting the new Hell Within album ready to record. Finally at the end of this month we will enter Prism Sound Studios in Acton, Ma to start tracking the album under the direction of John Ellis. This will take us about 3 weeks and then the masters are off to Audio Hammer Studios in Orlando FL for Jason Suecof to mix the album. We're very excited about working with these engineers and can't wait to get started. I will tell you the material is sick. In most areas the riffs are so bone crushing that they will send you into a frenzy, but then the songs have their tasteful melodic elements that will bring you back to earth and leave you begging for more. The songs are rock'n in some areas and then face shredding in others. More or less it has the signature Hell Within sound but put 2 years of touring and 2 more years of experience under our belts and you will have the new Hell Within album entitled 'Shadows Of Vanity.'"
