The Grave Alchemist is the impending new full-length from North Carolina-based blackened thrash trio ALL HELL. A twelve-track, narrative-driven, horror concept album that weaves a tale of alchemy, necromancy, and vampirism over the span of three centuries, The Grave Alchemist is a potent blend of violence, mysticism, psychology, and the occult, distilled into an aural elixir of Blood and Gold.
As a precursor to its April 14th release, today No Clean Singing offers up ALL HELL's visual accompaniment to the track "Vampiric Lust," noting, "The song's hard-driving drum rhythm incorporates feral punk energy, and the riffs are as red-eyed and predatory as they are galvanizing. Plus, the song includes a guitar solo that writhes and strikes like a viper, and Jacob Curwen's vocals are scalding in their unrestrained savagery. Just be careful about who's around you when you stream this - you'll probably want to chant 'vampiric... LUST' right along with the song."
Experience ALL HELL's "Vampiric Lust" at THIS LOCATION.
The Grave Alchemist -- which was captured by Kris Hilbert (The Body) and mastered by Joel Grind (Toxic Holocaust) -- will see worldwide release via Prosthetic Records on CD, LP, and digital formats. For preorders, visit THIS LOCATION.

Spawned in the dark hills of Asheville, North Carolina in 2013 and influenced by a wide array of genres from punk to thrash to "first wave" black metal to '80s deathrock and beyond, ALL HELL has relentlessly churned out their stygian works while spreading their volatile live show to eager audiences.
ALL HELL self-released their debut, The Devil's Work, in 2014, and played with bands such as 1349, Black Tusk, Ghoul, and labelmates, Skeletonwitch. A year later, ALL HELL released their second offering, The Red Sect, which was released through HPGD Productions. Prosthetic Records soon signed the band and reissued the album on LP and CD worldwide. ALL HELL hit the road in support of that album, sharing the stage with the likes of Venom Inc., Toxic Holocaust, Lord Dying, Ramming Speed, Horrendous, and many more.
With the release of The Grave Alchemist, ALL HELL has expanded their sound while infusing different elements to create a unique blend all their own. Fans of Bathory, Celtic Frost, Samhain, Satyricon, Skeletonwitch, Goatwhore, Toxic Holocaust and the like, pay heed.
