Helvetets Port
Man with the Chains
Style: Heavy Metal
Release date: 25 November, 2010
Playing time: 15:09

Helvetets Port (Hell's Gate) from Sweden released their debut album "Exodus to Hell" in 2009, but they failed to impress me. There were a few good tracks on that album, but the majority of them were average.

With this new 3 track 7" they sound a lot better. Helvetets Port sound like a bastard of NWOBHM and some obscure US metal acts like Cirith Ungol and Brocas Helm. Vocalist Witchfinder also sounds a lot better than on "Exodus to Hell", all in all Helvetets Port sounds more like a unit than before.

"Man with the Chains" delivers 3 good heavy metal tunes, and if Helvetets Port keep progressing like this the next full-length will be a true killer.
