SHADOWS FALL Drummer Jason Bittner, MELIAH RAGE Vocalist Marc Lopes Unleash HELLSPEAK
October 30, 2013, 2 years ago
Massachusetts metal band HELLSPEAK has released their debut EP entitled The Slaughter Rule Of Agony. Hellspeak features Jason Bittner on drums (SHADOWS FALL, TOXIC), vocalist Marc Lopes (MELIAH RAGE, DARK DAY SUNDAY), bassist Chris Rapoza (MACHINES OF GRACE) and guitarist Matt Leff (Machines Of Grace). They are the latest among the gifted heavy metal bands born from New England's thriving music scene. This foursome has concocted their own formula of infectious, fast, furious, dynamic and unforgiving metal.
Lopes, Rapoza and Leff have a lengthy history, spanning back to their days in Boston's TRIGGER EFFECT, which nailed a run of opening slots with IRON MAIDEN, QUEENSRŸCHE AND ROB HALFORD. Powerhouse Jason Bittner came into the fold after working with Lopes in Dark Day Sunday, which opened for DREAM THEATER on several dates.
The debut EP was mixed and produced by Paul David Hager (VAN HALEN, GOO GOO DOLLS) and mastered by Howie Weinberg (SLAYER, RUSH, PANTERA).
