“Hellish pays uncompromising homage to the bands which inspired them. In doing so, they made an album that can be played alongside those classics and more than hold its own.”
– Invisible Oranges
“Breakneck tempos? Check. A snarling punk attitude? Check. Over-the-top guitar solos? Check. A healthy dose of the occult in their lyrics? Check. Add in the raw aggression of early Bathory and some guitar work that’s clearly influenced by the Mike Torrao school of writing riffs, and you’ve got The Spectre of Lonely Souls.”
– Indy Metal Vault
“Short and to the point, with no frilly bits whatsoever the style herein is a delicious blend of South American thrash and melodic blackened metal.”
– Drunk in a Graveyard
“Hellish are an intriguing band and this record certainly shows they have plenty to offer the metal world.”
– Games, Brrraaains & A Head-Banging Life
Coming out of Santiago, Chile in the 2010s, HELLISH previously made believers out of thrash fans worldwide with their Unspeakable Axe-released debut, Grimoire. Only two years later, the follow-up album manages to out-pace and out-riff what came before. Classic speed metal-style riffs cut through an atmosphere of evil worthy of Bathory or Possessed – this is formative stuff, once again splashing around in the dark murk between thrash and black metal, and even straight-up heavy metal in the occasional, surprisingly melodic lead parts. But make no mistake: HELLISH worship at the twin altars of evil and velocity, and The Spectre of Lonely Souls is a sermon strictly for the already-converted.
