|Band||HELLSONICS||Album||Demon queen||Format||CD||Label||Drunkabilly Records||Year||2006||Genre||Psychobilly, Punkabilly|
The four Hellsonics used to slam in the Antwerp ardcore/metal scene, before they joined forces in 2002 to start a totally different unit. An exploring alliance, embracing all their individual styles. Upright bass player Johnny Crash slaps the psycho vibe in, deep and creeping as well as on dragster speed. Mean Krapula is a rhythmic sadist to his drums, tight like a headbanger on a sledgehammer groove. Brain Detzer’s guitar has a punk attitude from the doomdays of Discharge, but can also aim reverb on a wave of Danzig. Singer Killie D. was on the airwaves during her ten year run as host of Shock Report, the hardest radio show in Belgium at the time. She’s been vibrant in live bands since 1989, yet with the rise of Hellsonics her haunting voice reaches beyond former boundaries. Moreover a mesmerizing frontwoman glorifying a wicked charm, luring many drifters to the scorching sound of Hellsonics. Or as they say in Flemish: ‘The original sonido del diablo.’
Universally speaking that means ‘Demon Queen’ provokes good music for sinners. Good is the new evil!
