In the beginning of November 2010, I went to the Aalborg Metal Festival. One of the most interesting new bands there was a band called Dødning. I missed most of their Thursday evening gig, but from the two or three songs I heard, I could only conclude that we'd hear more from this band with the two shouters and a whole lot of action on stage.

And sure enough, a few months and a change of name later, the debut album is here.

And sure enough, it's like the proverbial kick in the face. The foundation of what Helhorse do is something someone called southern hardcore. I'm honestly not sure what that is, but fuck that, what I hear in this is a versatile amalgam of styles, ranging from hardcore to thrash, from sludge to plain ol' rock. Clean vocals? Yup, that too. Bluesy stoner rock? Sure. Boys and girls, this melting pot contains tons of things and should keep you on your toes, and it's wrapped in a nice and clear production.

This band is not only the latest prodigy of the Danish metal scene; they also have the attitude, prowess and song writing talent to keep rocking for years, that's for sure. Check this one out and keep watching out for these fellows!
