As Hell Retreats Signs With Strike First Records

as hell retreats 2010

Tennessee metalcore outfit As Hell Retreats has become the latest addition of the Strike First Records family. The following statement appeared on the Strike First Records Myspace late last week:

Our newest family member comes to us from Hendersonville, TN. As Hell Retreats have been propelling themselves forward since forming in 2005 by setting motivational goals, and step by step they are realizing the benefits of their hard work. They have self released five-song demos each year for the past 4 years, and 2010 will be the year they see the release of their first full length album. The new project promises to be a polished culmination of their past work, showcasing their death metal roots laced with thrash and hardcore.
Look for their debut full length Revival to be released from Strike First Records on May 25, 2010.
