FROM HELL is a heavy metal horror concept band in which each recording is intended to be its own horror story. The first one called “Ascent From Hell”, is about a corpse that wakes up in Hell and finds out he must go back to earth to find his soul that still lives on inside the body of a priest and drag it back to Hell.
In early 2019, FROM HELL began recording tracks for their next album which will be entitled “Rats and Ravens.”
