About the band

ELECTRIC HELLRIDE is a band with deep roots in the Copenhagen underground environment and in their short lifespan  they already played on the world’s biggest metal festival,  Wacken Open Air 2012. After the release of the debut album “Hate.Control.Manipulate” in 2012, the 2010 EP “Charged” was re-released by popular demand with live-tracks  from Wacken: “Recharged” (released 3 June 2013)

ELECTRIC HELLRIDE delivers uncomplicated and direct thrashing metal with elements drawn from both death, sludge, groove and traditional heavy metal. The band’s history goes back to 2008 and the band quickly became extremely active on the metal scene in Copenhagen. In 2012 the band released “Hate.Control.Manipulate”, the debut  album recorded and mixed by Jacob Bredahl (ex-Hatesphere, The Kandidate) in Dead Rat Studio. It was not the first visit in  Bredahl’s studio by the band as the out of stock 2010 EP “Charged”
was recorded there as well. The debut album has been well recieved so it is only natural to reprint the EP – but not without some extra goodies.

So “Charged” is now “Recharged” and comes with an extended booklet and the full Wacken Open Air 2012 show (only audio, mix and master by Jacob Bredahl)

The band members in ELECTRIC HELLRIDE have known each other since they were young boys. From elementary school to high school they used to play music together and
have all been a part of the metal environment for many years.

In the Spring of 2013 Electric Hellride toured Denmark with By the Patient and Aphyxion and even had the pleasure of supporting Overkill in Copenhagen.
