HELL MILITIA are back with a vengeance! Since its founding in the year 1999 by lead guitarist T. Persecutor, the band has been a rising dark star in the underground Black Metal scene. Now their third full-length “Jacob's Ladder” bursts unto the world like a black supernova. The French masterfully achieve a unification of old school values such as a harsh and fierce yet accessible songwriting with the new dissonant and ruptured sound which is especially explored in their homeland. After recruiting like minded spirits HELL MILITIA unveiled themselves first with the split “SPK Kommando” (2001) and a demo named “The Second Coming – Reh” (2003), which won them a record deal. The debut album “Canonisation of the Foul Spirit” (2005) gained the French international attention and critical acclaim. As members of HELL MILITIA were also active in bands such as ARKHON INFAUSTUS, SECRETS OF THE MOON or TEMPLE OF BAAL, their next output appeared after a hiatus of five years. “Last Station on the Road to Death” (2010) proved to be a success as well as their tours with the likes of ARCHGOAT, BEHEXEN, BLACKLODGE and AOSOTH. This fuelled the band’s vision both musically and visually as indicated by the inclusion of a VJ as a permanent member in their line-up. The universe of HELL MILITIA smells of urban filth, unshakable religious faith and an extremely bitter after taste. Recorded in Germany’s SOS studio (Secrets of the Moon, Ascension), "Jacob's Ladder" delivers 8 stunning tracks of disturbing French Black Metal. Listen with care!
