HELLBASTARD formed in the UK in 1984 playing non-compromising crossover,
mixing the ferocity of punk with the crunch and chops of metal and socially
conscious lyrics. HELLBASTARD released the Natural Order record on Earache
in 1990 and put out several demos, compilation tracks and remix collections.
After breaking up in 1993, HELLBASTARD reformed in 2008 with all guns
blazing! They are back in action with The Need to Kill, available on
limited edition LP from the German Civilisation Records label.
