Biography

H3llb3nt was a collaborative from the United States that formed in 1995. The project featured a number of artists including Eric Powell (16volt), Jared Louche (Chemlab), Charles Levi (My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult), Bryan Black (Haloblack), Lee Fraser (Sheep On Drugs), Martin Atkins (Pigface), and Raymond Watts (PIG, KMFDM).

In 1996, they released their first album, 0.01, through Fifth Colvmn Records. Shortly after the release of their debut album, the label met its demise. Having lost virtually all distribution and promotion for their album, they turned to Re-Constriction Records.

In 1998, they released their second album, Helium, a compilation of what they deemed the best songs off 0.01 combined with new material recorded in London and Minneapolis. Their second album later met the fate of the first one when Re-Constriction also came to a halt.

Signing up for Invisible Records in 2001, they released two albums: Hardcore Vanilla, a full-length album consisting of completely new content; and Regurgitator, a complete compilation of all tracks from their first two albums.

In 2007, the label finished the band’s discography with two final compilations: Hardcore Vanilla (Demos) and Hardcore Vanilla (Unreleased). The albums were previously unreleased, featuring demos and alternate tracks from their third and final full-length album in 2001.
