Hell Within Bio:

Hell Within started in 2002 with five musicians whose only concern was making heavy and aggressive metal. It took the band 2 years of playing the local Massachusetts circuit and self financed east coast tours for Hell Within to get the attention of previous record label Lifeforce Records.

Hell Within signed with their 1st record label in July of 2004 and started the writing process for their debut album. The band hit the studio in November of 2004 with producer John Ellis of Prism Sound (Godsmack, Tribe Of Judah) to record the album. Once the recording was complete the album was brought to Zeuss (Hatebreed, Shadows Fall, Madball) at Planet Z studios for mixing. Alan Douches (Unearth, God Forbid, From Autumn To Ashes) of West Westside Studio took the driver's seat of mastering the album. Lastly, Mario Gaza at Robot Plague (Suicide Silence, He Is Legend) designed the artwork and the album was ready for release. The band's debut album "Asylum of the Human Predator" was released worldwide in April of 2005. Once the album hit the streets the band set off non-stop touring in support of their new effort.

Hell Within participated in 3 full U.S. tours and 5 east coast tours. Touring with such bands as Manntis (Century Media), God Dethroned (Metal Blade), Nightrage (Century Media/ Lifeforce Records), Thine Eyes Bleed (The End Records), Byzantine (Prosthetic Records), The Autumn Offering (Victory Records), The Human Abstract (Hopeless Records), etc.

On an intermission during all the rigorous touring Hell Within enlisted the talent of Ian McFarland (Messuggah, Agnostic Front, Cannae) of Killswitch Productions to shoot the first music video. Ian and Hell Within decided that "Bleeding me Black" from "Asylum of the Human Predator" was the best candidate for the video. The video hit the air waves in the spring of 2006.

After the tour cycle for "Asylum of the Human Predator" ended, the band returned to the rehearsal room to start writing their sophomore release. Hell Within worked on the album for 5 months and then hit the studio yet again with producer John Ellis. Once the tracking of the album was complete, it was time to mix the new offering. Hell Within took the new record to well known engineers Mark Lewis and Jason Suecoff at Audio Hammer Studios (Trivium, All That Remains, God Forbid, etc) to mix the yet untitled release. Lastly, Hell Within's new record made its last stop at Morris Sound to be mastered by Tom Morris (Iced Earth, Kreator, Marilyn Manson). Once the audio production was complete, the band contacted Paul Romano (Mastadon, Trivium, etc...) to put the finishing touches on the album by designing the artwork.

Hell Within's new album "Shadows of Vanity" hit the streets in May of 2007 and was very well received by fans. Yet again it was time for the band to hit the road in support of the album. Hell Within supported their new effort with 3 full U.S. tours and 3 East coast tours since "Shadows of Vanity's" Release, touring with bands such as Forever in Terror (Metal Blade), Hand to Hand (Lifeforce Records) and Ashes Of Your Enemy (Crash Music Inc.).

Since the release of their 2nd album Hell Within has parted ways with their previous label. It became evident that it was time to move on and find a new home for Hell Within. The band returned to the rehearsal room to write and record 4 new tracks for shopping purposes. Once the recording was complete the band put together new press kits to begin label shopping. After talking to multiple labels, Hell Within decided to ink a multi album worldwide deal with Thorp Records. Now backed by new label Thorp Records and a lot of experience under their belt Hell Within moves forward.

Hell Within is a band that perseveres throughout anything that is thrown their way. No matter what the obstacle, the band will always continue writing great metal music and tour with the integrity that for them has become a way of life.
