Hell Reveals "The Age Of Nefarious" Single Details

Revived British occult metal band Hell has unveiled the first details about the new single from upcoming album "Curse And Chapter," to be titled "The Age Of Nefarious."

The band's current incarnation with Andy Sneap (guitar) and David Bower (vocals) join original members Kev Bower (guitar and keys), Tony Speakman (bass), and Tim Bowler (drums) and will publish the follow-up to "Human Remains" (2011) on November, 22nd 2013 via Nuclear Blast.

"The Age Of Nefarious" single will be released October 25th, 2013. Coming as a 10” vinyl in several colored versions, it will include the single track plus three live songs recorded at the Bloodstock Festival, 2013. The track listing is as follows:

Side A:
1. The Age Of Nefarious
2. On Earth As It Is In Hell (live)
Side B:
1. Blasphemy And The Master (live)
2. The Oppressors (live)

Commented string and keyman Kev Bower: "In a world dominated by conflict, disease, corruption, poverty, disaster and crime - much of which has religion at its source - this is truly the dawning of 'The Age Of Nefarious'. The song was always going to be the perfect opener for the new 'Curse And Chapter' album since it lays the foundation for everything which follows, but when we were approached by our friends at Nuclear Blast with the idea of producing a lead-off EP, we also decided that out of four possible EP album track candidates - this song should also be the one.

"It represents everything which Hell represents - it powers along in awe-inspiring majesty, but takes lots of unexpected twists and turns before reaching its inevitable conclusion. The artwork is once again the result of our collaboration with Dan Goldsworthy, and it shows just a tiny fraction of the artwork he has created for 'Curse And Chapter.' With regard to the additional live tracks - where better to have recorded these than from the main stage at Bloodstock Open Air 2013 - the spiritual home of UK metal, during one of the best shows we have ever played, and in front of 10,000 of the most dedicated metal heads in the world. We are proud to be giving you a glimpse into the second Chapter......"
