Hellnite is a heavy metal project which was founded in Mexico City in 2010 playing local shows and covering songs of some of the most influential bands of the metal scene around the world. As time went by, the band began taking its own shape and sound. Paolo Belmar is the vocalist, composer and guitar player of the band and one of the three founders of the project. In 2013 after playing a bunch of local shows and maintaining the same line-up for three years Hellnite released their first EP, Manipulator, recorded, produced and released independently by the band members.
After the release of Manipulator, the band went through various line-up changes with Paolo always at the core but due to the issues of finding a stable line-up, the groups activity decreased. So at the beginning of 2017, Paolo decided to leave Mexico in order to look for better opportunities in Canada, taking the Hellnite project with him.
Arriving in Canada, Paolo started working with Canadian musicians to keep the project alive, and in 2018, things started to come together with the signing to Sliptrick Records. Finally the new full-length album Midnight Terrors is ready for release early next year and Hellnite hope to create an impact with their music around the world.
