Raise Hell

Raise Hell (Stockholm, Sweden) was formed in 1996 by Jonas Nilsson(guitars) and Niklas Sjöström (bass) and after about one month Torstein Wickberg (guitar) joined. A couple of different drummers were tried out but no one of them cut the chase. When Dennis Ekdahl came to rehearse with the band they knew that they had found what they were looking for. The group started out under the name In Cold Blood, and it was under that name the first demo, "Nailed", was recorded and led to a record deal with Nuclear Blast.

Bands
Blessed Death

BLESSED DEATH arrived on the metal scene in the 1984. They released their debut album 'KILL OR BE KILLED' in 1985 (currently out of print) which featured their own unique blend of heavy speed, power, death and destruction. The album quickly gained a lot of attention among the underground scene, especially in Europe. It has grown to be an 80's thrash metal classic featuring a song that has become somewhat of a legend and metal anthem 'Knights of Old Bridge'.

Two years later BLESSED DEATH released their second album 'DESTINED FOR EXTINCTION' in 1987 (also currently out of print). This album took on a much more extreme and aggressive direction than the first, featuring an all out onslaught of furious thrash speed metal while still retaining their signature heavy doom laden edge.
