HELL IN THE CLUB – Kamikaze – 10 Years in the Slums (2022)
Italian hard rockers HELL IN THE CLUB are celebrating the ten year anniversary of their debut album Let The Games Begin (2011) with ”Kamikaze – 10 Years In The Slums“. The release includes new songs, two covers – a killer version of Alice Cooper ’80s classic ‘He’s Back (The Man Behind the Mask)’ and W.A.S.P. ‘Chainsaw Charlie (Murders in the New Morgue)’ – and a re-recorded track from their debut.
In mixing the familiar with the new, this is a great listen, and a fine footnote to the band’s first decade. The material might not push the boat out too far in terms of originality or invention – that’s never what HITC have been about – but in reminding people of their high energy approach and flawless influences, it all does a more than admirable job.
