About the band

ELECTRIC HELLRIDE is a well-known and respected 4-piece group hailing from the Danish underground. Already having played Wacken Open Air and supported Overkill, ELECTRIC HELLRIDE is known for a tireless energy in an exciting mix of thrash, death and classic heavy metal. Fans of Entombed, Metallica, Machine Head or early Mastodon will love ELECTRIC HELLRIDE and their uncompromised productions with a fierce stranglehold on complex heavy metal.

The new album is entitled ”Praedam” which translated from latin means ”prey”. All songs on the album are somehow connected to this theme. Whether it is to be the hunter or be the hunted. It’s a concept that fits perfectly with ELECTRIC HELLRIDES desperate and aggressive soundscapes. It’s been five years since the release of the groovy “Hate.Control.Manipulate” in 2012 while releasing an EP in 2014 on which the band showcased new tricks and a direction that would end up being the natural prequel to this massive new album. “Praedam” is atmospheric and dynamic and very much cut to the bone.

”We’ve taken our time in producing ”Praedam”. It’s come out more awesome than we dared to dream about. Most definitely we feel that this album is our best work to date, and we can’t wait to get out on the road to play it live!” – Casper Villumsen (Bass/vocals)

The album is recorded and produced at Aurochs Studios with Emil Sauer who is best know for his work with Myrkur (live sound) and Helhorse (production). The new album will be released on ELHELL Records the 15th of September 2017, distributed through Border Music and promoted by Elevation Denmark.
