The Copenhagen four piece Electric Hellride delivers groovy and direct metal with elements of thrash, death, sludge and traditional heavy metal.
The bands history goes back to 2008 and includes several intense concerts which in 2012 resulted in the band being chosen to represent Denmark at Wacken Open Air in the international finals of the Metal Battle.
After the critically acclaimed EP “Charged” from 2010 the band recorded a debut full length album in the autumn of 2011. The result is ten groovy tracks.
The album is called “Hate.Control.Manipulate” and was engineered, mixed and mastered by Jacob Bredahl (Hatesphere, The Kandidate) in Dead Rat Studio. The outcome is a dirty, ferocious and unpolished sound which still appears crisp and detailed. The energy and attitude the band delivers in concert is preserved on the equally energetic 47 minute album.
In August 2012 the band signed a deal with MIGHTY MUSIC and the label released the album the November 26, 2012. Artwork for the album was done by Mircea Eftemie (Mnemic) who has worked for Soilwork, ALooP and The Haunted as well.
In the Spring of 2013 the band toured in Denmark with By the Patient and Aphyxion and even supported Overkill for a show in Copenhagen.
The out of stock EP ‘Charged’ was re-released in June 2013 as ‘Recharged’ including 4 bonus LIVE tracks from the show at Wacken Open Air 2012.
In 2014 the EP ‘Come Darkness, Come Light’ was released showcasing a slight change in style as a hint of what is to come with the bands 2nd full lenght album that was recorded during winter and spring 2016. The album is set for release late 2016 or early 2017.
