HELLION ANNOUNCES DETAILS OF NEW “KARMA’S A BITCH” MINI ALBUM

Hellion-thumb

Iconic female-fronted metal act  HELLION announce details of their first new album in over a decade.  Entitled Karma’s A Bitch, the new mini-LP is set for release via HNE/Cherry Red Records on October 8 in Europe and the UK, just before the band set out on a massive tour of the US.  The cover artwork was designed by British artist Wolven Claws of The Crystallomantic Art.

With a stellar line-up featuring vocalist Ann Boleyn, drummer Simon Wright (formerly of AC/DC, DIO, and UFO), keyboardist Scott Warren (formerly with DIO and HEAVEN & HELL), bassist Bjorn Englen (formerly with Yngwie Malmsteen), and up-an-coming shred guitarist Maxxxwell Carlisle, this is easily Hellion's strongest line-up ever.

HELLION’s new tracks were produced by Simon Wright and Ann Boleyn alongside legendary British studio icon Ken Scott, who has produced iconic albums, including DAVID BOWIE's  "Hunky Dory", "The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars", "Aladdin Sane" and "Pinups".

A top producer at Abbey Road Studios, Scott is also acknowledged as one of the five principal engineers for THE BEATLES.  He has engineered countless classic works, including GEORGE HARRISON's "All Things Must Pass", ELTON JOHN's "Madman Across The Water", "Honky Chateau" and "Don't Shoot Me I'm Only The Piano Player."  Other credits include gold and platinum albums by SUPERTRAMP, DAVID BOWIE, MISSING PERSONS, KANZAS, and more.

 

Scott recently said of the comparison between working with David Bowie and Ann Boleyn: "Working with Bowie or working with Ann of HELLION, you've got sheer talent.” Acknowledging Boleyn as the driving force propelling the band, Scott notes: "Over the years, the musicians have changed. The one musician that has always been the same is Ann. So once again, it's new musicians. The one constant thing about HELLION is Ann, and her incredible voice."

“Starting off with a mysterious and ethereal ghostly introduction, Betrayer quickly blasts into overdrive with a scream from Hell and the raw power the likes of which can only come from Ann Boleyn,” commented Rob DiMartini of Metal Scream Radio.  “The title track, Karma's A Bitch, is a tough sounding rocker destined to be one of the strongest songs on metal radio this year.”


Di Martini continued, ”Hell Has No Fury delivers full-tilt metal with a sublime orchestral section by Scott Warren and the blistering guitar work of Maxwell Carlisle. Watch The City Burn takes listeners on an in-depth journey into the anger and chaos of a full-blown riot. The final piece, Til The End, begins with the hammering double-bass power grove of Simon Wright at his finest. With an anthem-like melody, this is a song that fans will be singing along with when Hellion hits the road.”
