Hard core, hell bent and raring to go with a new album to add to their quickly-growing discography, European goth rockers Hell Boulevard is the latest band to announce a new record via Germany’s No Cut Entertainment.
The Swiss based goth’n’roll quartet is ready to unveil their new studio album, unequivocally titled ‘Not Sorry’. A record that has been utterly unapologetic since its conception, this is Hell Boulevard’s new attempt to produce songs they won’t ever be sorry for. The LP is previewed by singles ‘Not Sorry’ and ‘Death To The Future feat. Faderhead’.
Founded in 2014 by Italian vocalist Matteo VDiva Fabbiani from the ashes of Swiss rising stars Lost Area,, the band also features Von Marengo of Lost Area (guitars, vocals), Jan Hangman on drums and Raul Sanchez on bass. Their new album follows up notable singles ‘Hangover from Hell’ (2014) and ‘Zero Fucks Given’ (2017) and two long plays ‘Inferno’ (2016) and ‘In Black We Trust’ (2018).
This third chapter adds another facet to their sound in a process of growth that is cohesive and progressive. Their classic blend of solid rock and roll and big refrains, along with orchestral arrangements, still represents the core of their sound, while this new album introduces previously unheard elements taken from different metal subgenres: from metal-core breakdowns to sharp industrial-inspired guitar riffs.
While, at first glance, ‘Not Sorry’ LP seems to explore more negative territory than previous releases, upon venturing just a little deeper, one can find the hopeful, positive message behind their devilish lyrics and heavy drums. A faster, in-your-face type of record, the new album presents band members’ unfiltered selves with no remorse, no regrets and, most importantly, no apologies.
Their unmistakable blend of goth’n’roll, tours with Darkhaus and Unzucht, and collaborations with such established acts as Lord Of The Lost, Freakangel, Erdling and Eisfabrik has created a buzz on the music scene.
As of September 18, the ‘Not Sorry’ LP will be available digitally across online stores like Apple Music and streaming platoforms such as Spotify, as well as on CD and a FanBox, via NoCut Entertainment. Early 2021 tour dates have also been announced for Germany:
