AS HELL RETREATS to partake In the “Hope For The Nations” Tour

AS HELL RETREATS will head out with YOUR MEMORIAL (Facedown Records), SOVEREIGN STRENGTH and FALL IN ARCHAEA on the first annual “Hope For The Nations” Tour. Giving back, a portion of the proceeds from the tour will be donated to Hello Somebody (, going towards helping to feed starving children.  The tour kicks off on November 11th in Johnstown, NY and AS HELL RETREATS will be wrapping up their portion of the tour on December 10th in Lynchburg, VA.  A full list of dates can be seen below.

AS HELL RETREATS released their AIN’T NO GRAVE RECORDS debut, Volition earlier this year.  The band combines musical influence from progressive and black metal while highlighting thought-provoking lyrics.  Receiving comparisons to Meshuggah, the album is “as progressive as it is heavy, which is noteworthy for a band that is still so young,” says Outburn Magazine.

The music video for “Matriarch” from the album Volition can be seen here.
