HOLYHELL - featuring vocalist Maria Breon and guitarist Joe Stump - have checked in with an update. Breon's statement on the current status of the band is available below:
Francisco, Joe, Jay, John and myself are excited to announce we are fully re-recording HolyHell's Darkness Visible and working with new management and channels of distribution.
In an attempt to limit our visibility, our website, Facebook pages, as well as YouTube accounts with content made by us and our loyal fans, were either removed or made subject to a false copyright infringement claim. Although we do own the trademarks and copyrights to all HolyHell materials, this was not our doing. We extend our deepest apologies to anyone who may have been inconvenienced by these malicious actions of others.
While we work to build our new website, we offer you a place on our HolyHell Facebook page
for all current updates and information, as well as inviting you to join us on our new journey.
Thank you again for your continued support and patience during our transition."
Darkness Visible, the new studio album from HolyHell, was due to be released as digital album and as physical CD in fall 2012. The band had originally announced a pre-release of the album in June 2012.
To bridge the waiting for this new studio album full of epic, power-goth metal, HolyHell released the EP Darkness Visible – The Warning that featuring three songs from the forthcoming long play album, and a never before released live version of the song ‘Armageddon’, performed live at The Agora, Cleveland, OH on March 12th, 2011.
