Hellbent - Hardcore Vanilla
Industrial H3llb3nt is a combination of several different artists like Haloback, 16 Volt, Chemlab, Pigface, Thrill Kill Cult and Pig. A lot of names that has more or less of an exciting musical history behind them. But today we are going to talk about H3llb3nt.

The music is electro influenced but feels on the same time "punky" and lively. Electro beats and evil hissing voices accompanies by spattering electric guitars and ambient floating sounds. At times it sounds really nice. H3llb3nt isn't the best I've heard in the electro genre but they belong to the better acts.

Tracks like "BLO", "Atariteenage Fuck" and "Switching Off" make the album rise to the top half of the grading scale. After you have listening through the album a couple of times, the musical experience is much stronger. This is a big grading motivation. They also have, in my opinion, one of the best looking covers I've seen in a long time.
