The Covid pandemic really fucked things up, didn’t it? and now as we emerge on the other side of the pandemic like a plagued butterfly bursting forth from its Coronavirus cocoon, bands are starting to celebrate missed anniversaries. One such band are Hell in the Club (HITC) who are celebrating the 10th anniversary of their first album a year late with a new EP ‘Kamikaze 10 Years in the Slums’.

                The guys in HITC may be better known for their work with Elvenking and Secret Sphere, but this band allows them to get their hard rock/glam metal sounds on as ’Kamikaze…’ delivers two brand new songs and a reworking of ‘In Your Eyes’ a track from the band’s debut album done the style that we have come to know and love with HITC having all the love for bands such as House of Shakira, Bonfire and Crazy Lixx. These new songs ‘may’ feel a little too long at times and could do with having ‘some’ of the fat trimmed, but before this becomes a main complaining point, the EP sweeps the listener from its feet by delivering two excellent covers ‘He Back (The Man Behind the Mask)’ by Alice Cooper and ‘Chainsaw Charlie (Murders in the New Morgue)’ by W.A.S.P., the latter giving the feeling of what the track would sound like had it been sung by Sebastian Bach and not Blackie Lawless.

                What HITC have delivered here is a decent EP celebrating those first 10 years. It does exactly what it needs to do, showing that HITC are not intent on resting on those laurels by providing new songs as well as a bit of fun with some covers. Can you ask for more than that? Nah.
