West Of Hell 'The Infidels Tour Canada 2019' with Expain & Guests

West of Hell is a band that delivers a unique form of heavy metal with a wide range of influences from Power, Death and Prog metal to Thrash, Groove and Classic metal. Band members first connected in the mid-2000s in West Auckland, New Zealand. Andrew Hulme (drums), Ivan Vrdoljak (guitars), and Sean Parkinson (guitars) started practicing together and soon found a bassist in Jordan Kemp. As they honed their skills, they worked tirelessly on the sound they were striving for, and played several shows without a vocalist in their early days.After a number of years developing their songs and searching for the right vocalist, the decision was made to relocate as a group to a larger market. In 2009, they moved to Vancouver, BC, Canada. Still in search of a vocalist, they continued to book gigs and perform as an instrumental act. This paid off later that same year, when the buzz around the local Vancouver scene led them to Chris ‘The Heathen’ Valagao, frontman of Zimmers Hole.With Valagao on board (vocals) and a complete set of songs ready to record, West of Hell enlisted Juno award-winning engineer Rob Shallcross (Strapping Young Lad, GWAR, Zimmers Hole, Gene Hoglan, Fear Factory) to help them produce their debut album. Recorded at The Factory studios in Vancouver, Spiral Empire was released in 2012 via Reversed Records, followed by a tour in New Zealand and extensive touring in Canada. Valagao, using his experience as a cinematographer and SPFX artist, produced and directed two music videos for the tracks ‘Faceless the Droids’ and ‘Water of Sorcery’. Although the members had hoped to progress as a band and remain based in Canada, unfortunately, it wasn’t viable for some. Ivan left the band in early 2011 and Andrew left in 2014, both returning to NZ. The band continued on through the next few years with various guitarists and drummers occupying the vacancies left by Vrdoljak and Hulme. Kris Schulz, a key figure in introducing the band to Valagao, was approached to join the band in 2014. His guitar playing and personality brought an exciting new twist to the band’s sound. With that, West of Hell entered the studio to record a new album in 2015. Guitars, bass and vocals were tracked at Infinity Studios in Victoria, BC, while the drums were tracked by Ash Pearson (Revocation, 3 Inches of Blood) at The Armoury Studios in Vancouver, BC. With Rob Shallcross again enlisted to engineer and produce and Greg Reely (Fear Factory, Strapping Young Lad, Paradise Lost, Devil Driver, Overkill) on mastering duties, the new album is set to raise the band to another level. With the new record being prepared for release, the last couple of years have been spent touring Canada and producing more music videos, some of which will be released along with the record. The video for new track ‘Hammer and Hand’, produced and directed by Valagao and Joe Klymkiw, has been released and features on a compilation DVD distributed by Imperative Music.West of Hell has now found a permanent drummer in Paul Drummond. With a completeand committed line-up the band is set to tour Mexico in late 2018 and plans Canadian and European tours in 2019.West Of Hellhttps://facebook.com/pg/WestofHell/Explainhttps://facebook.com/Expainmetal/
