Hell in the Club – See you on the Dark Side [2017]

“See you on the Dark Side” is the brand new fourth studio album by Italian hair metal/melodic hard rock sensation “Hell in the Club”, marking their first release under “Frontiers Records”. The band is put together by experienced musicians of the Italian metal scene, feature lead singer Davide “Dave” Moras of folk metallers “Elvenking”, bassist Andrea “Andy” Buratto from Italian progressive metal legends Secret Sphere, drummer Marco “Lancs” Lanciotti plus guitarist Andrea “Picco” Piccardi.

As mentioned previously the musical style of “Hell in the club” has very little to do with the member’s previous works in metal, as this new effort draws upon melodic hard rock and hair metal, so you can expect large choruses, melodic guitars, upfront rhythm section delivering occasional rock’n roll groove and the party atmosphere that comes with it. Think of a playlist comprised of your favorite ‘80s hard rock bands like Motley Crue, Def Leppard, and the like mixed with the cream of the crop of ‘80s heavy metal like DIO, Accept, Helloween, and the like. Now, imagine if all those classic songs started to play over each other and overlap and merge with one another and you’ll start to have a sense of Hell in The Club’s sound.

The rhythm guitars are undeniably metallic while the solos have become far more sophisticated-towards melodic shred. Equal emphasis is placed on the lyrics and choruses, striving for catchy vocal harmonies and memorable choruses-though. Another huge plus is the production, handled by Simone Mularoni of DGM fame.

Songs like “We are on Fire”, “The Phantom Punch”, “Little Toy Soldier” and “A Melody, A Memory” are prime examples of the quality of the songs of their new effort. “See you on the Dark Side” is as complete an album as it gets especially considering the consistency of the songwriting and performance, this release is easily comparable to the work of the most acclaimed bands of the genre.
