Hell Fire's new single "Conquerors" reminisces on the road dog life in new video
"Lots of thrash bands do their best to sound retro, but Hell Fire manage to sound classic." -- Kerrang!
"Hell Fire rocks harder than Stonehenge with the fury of Motorhead!" -- CvltNation
"Hell Fire is straight up incapable of writing a song that doesn't kick ass. They just can't do it... Pure heavy metal." -- Metal Injection
San Francisco thrash revivalists Hell Fire share a new single & video today via Metal Injection. The clip, comprised mostly of live footage and candid scenes from the band's seemingly endless touring from way back 'in the before-times' is touchingly celebratory of the live show experience.

"Conquerors" is a standalone single available on all streaming platforms today. Mania is the band's first proper album on RidingEasy Records, following the label's worldwide reissue of the band's self-released 2017 sophomore breakout Free Again, released on January 18th.
Formed in recent years in San Francisco, though it may seem more likely that they hatched fresh out of a time travel portal from the mid-80s Bay Area thrash scene, Hell Fire have the classic look and sound of modern metal's halcyon days. Hell Fire's sonic assault warmly condenses elements of influences like Angel Witch, Iron Maiden, Rainbow, Exodus, Metallica, Riot, Virtue and Diamond Head into 10 tracks of headbanging MUYA anthems.
The free-wheelin' creativity and infectious vitality of the 80s Bay Area thrash scene is a moment forever locked in time, but its spirit lives on in the band's galloping guitar picks, soaring harmonies and blistering rhythms. Hell Fire's perfect hybrid of NWOBHM theatrics and American thrash attitude.
Mania is available on LP, CD and download, released on March 29th, 2019 via RidingEasy Records. The album is available to purchase Here
