IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS is proud to present HELLEHOND's striking debut album, Verslonden, on CD and vinyl LP formats.
Hailing from the Netherlands, HELLEHOND formed in 2017. Although an otherwise-new entity, the band members actually hail from such cult hordes as Asphyx, Wederganger, and Rectal Smega. As such, Verslonden is HELLEHOND's first public recording.
With HELLEHOND's primary influences being Hellhammer, early Celtic Frost, and Bathory, it's no surprise that Verslonden is a gutted 'n' grimy experience. Raw and primitive black metal without any compromises is what you'll find here: no more, but certainly no less! As perhaps expected, the members' erstwhile activities can be felt in HELLEHOND's antagonizing attack - the ominous gallop of Asphyx, the feverish rocking of Wederganger, even the bloody viscera of Rectal Smegma - but the quartet keep that attack securely on their own terms, with songwriting that squarely splits the difference between old-fashioned memorability and cold 'n' distant atmosphere.
Put more directly, HELLEHOND's Verslonden is caveman black metal - by cavemen, for cavemen. Music lovers...stay away!

Just when you think CDG had given everything on their last album, this masterpiece comes around. Not comparable to coven in any way, but better in it's own way. Just give it a listen and you'll know what I mean. If you're a fan, support them, it's worth the buy. M.Dark
