This Is HellHometown:
Long Island, NY USA Travis Reilly:
Formed by Travis Reilly (ex-Scraps And Heart Attacks), This Is Hell have quickly become known as a Long Island hardcore force to be reckoned with across the globe. Their debut EP on State of Mind caught the eye and ears of many, including Trustkill, signed the band to a multi-album deal.
The band released their full length debut "Sundowning" in May of 2006. Deathwish released the vinyl version of this great album in early 2007.
"Sundowning" has received critical acclaim from around the globe. Rock Sound Magazine said of the album, "Caustic yet eloquent in their cathartic delivery, This Is Hell are a molten mix of hardcore influences that have erupted with force." Webzine Decoy Music praised the band, saying "Sundowning, is a twenty-nine minute serving of floor-punching, ass-kicking hardcore goodness that has more than a hint of old-school flavor baked throughout as a solid first brick in what could prove to be the road back to what hardcore has supposedly lost...".
This Is Hell continues to tour the world and be an awesome hardcore band.
