Italian THE HELL RIDERS have signed with Wanikiya Record/Promotion for their upcoming album which is currently in the works. More details TBA.
THE HELL RIDERS were born by Riccardo Marcassa (Guitarist) and Gio Prestinari (Drummer). Both are at the same time old members of the historical band of Porlezza known by the name Beyond Death Of Humanity from the mold thrash metal. The band lasted until 2014. In October 2017 the two meet again and decide to form a new band by re-proposing their old songs from the past in a heavy key. In January of 2018 the band deploys among its line-up Davide Girardi as vocalist, taken from Ticino, while in May of the same year, it is completed with Ismael Meireles on bass, also from Switzerland. In May the band decides to record in a rudimentary way some songs releasing the Demo: Origins. In November of the same year the band changes again the lines adding Cesare Massaini on drums, Caterina La Chimia on bass guitar and Luca Manta as second guitar. The first of December the Hell Riders signed a contract with Volcano Records and enter the studio to record the first album on December 17, 2018. The recordings end on May 24, 2019 with a new drummer, Angelo Cislaghi, while in September of the same year, a new member arrives, the young Enea Maina to replace Luca Manta. On November 1, 2019, the band’s debut album titled “First Race” was released.
