"Hungary’s most exciting upstarts, THE HELLFREAKS, deliver a mixture of chart-storming modern metal and post-hardcore soaked in skate punk energy with their brand-new album, Pitch Black Sunset, out via Napalm Records. Founded in 2009, the modern metal outfit emerges with a stellar discography and their massive psychobilly-punk hit "Boogie Man", which has gathered multi-millions of views on YouTube. With their fifth album, Pitch Black Sunset, the rising band waves the flag of a new generation of metal and punk.
THE HELLFREAKS kick off with vocalist Zsuzsa “Shakey Sue” Radnóti’s trademark sing-along-screams, as “Old Tomorrows” raises the pulse with fast-paced punk mixed with groovy metal beats. Like the story of Jekyll and Hyde, the upstarts unveil their angry side on “Hit Me Where It Hurts”, led by electronic rock as distorted, rhythmic guitar lines set the pace with catchy metalcore beats. The effortless force of singer Sue resembles an earthquake, with her raspy punk vocal attack.
Followed by the restless track “Chaos”, boisterous thrash lines meet pop-punk-infused metal before closing with a Tom Morello-worthy solo. THE HELLFREAKS stay true to themselves yet never become stagnant or pretentious – as tracks like “Weeping Willow” are driven by more modern metal interpretations and electronic interludes.
With its fragile clean vocals and the eerie sounds of the guitar’s strings, the atmosphere of the song changes throughout before taking an unexpected turn into a hard-hitting core hymn. "Body Bag" offers a total contrast - surfacing like a message in a bottle with it’s in-your-face, straightforward 2000s skate-punk vibe that fans of the genre have always wished for. THE HELLFREAKS showcases the individual musical expertise of its members when chunky riffs merge with strong beats and highly aggressive shouts, while bittersweet vocal lines call out for a feel-good song. Performing in almost every European country and gaining more awareness via their American tour in 2015, the well-experienced band from Budapest proves with Pitch Black Sunset that they are more than ready to kickstart their next chapter!"
