Countdown to Rebellion – Day 16: Introducing HellCity

HellCity have been kicking it old skool since 2004, when they formed in Beijing, China. Another of those Asian bands that have taken their influences from the 2nd wave of British Punk, taken heir cues from The Exploited, Discharge and in HellCity’s case, Blitz. Leather, studs and mohawks and plenty of melody mixed in. Most of their recorded output is hard to find as they were limited editions, in one case just 66 copies of their 2nd album Live In “TTD VIII” Fest, exist on cassette, so good luck finding that one!

Definitely not fans of the ruling regime in China if the lyrics of Voice Of China ae anything to go by, which opens with; “Bastard system,
Bastard leader,
Kill, Kill.”

Far more dangerous than anything the Sex Pistols ever penned, Anarchy included!

HellCity are:

Vocals & Guitar: Rude Huang
Guitar & Vocals: Yu Sijia
Bass: Sun Xiao
Drums: Zhang Luyin

You can find their Bandcamp page here

HellCity are on at 17:45-18:15 – Sat 5th Aug – Rebellion Introducing Stage in the Arena
