THIS IS HELL guitarist Rick Jimenez previously stated about “Black Mass”: “The new album takes the crossover and metal influences from last album to much greater extremes and the end product was ‘Black Mass’, by far the heaviest and thrashiest songs we’ve written and recorded. Lyrically, this album touches on issues we haven’t dove into before. Social injustice as a whole is a recurring theme. Persistence and empowerment are familiar themes with us that I’ve revisited, but with an even more aggressive outlook than before.”

He added, “The artwork was done by Will Blood, an amazing English illustrator/artist that we’ve worked with on shirts and designs before. The concept came from some lyrics and underlying themes from the album and Will really took the ball and ran with it. Whether someone takes the art at sheer superficial face value, or really absorbs the details and subtleties of it, it’s an extremely powerful piece of artwork. I feel the same way about the music and especially the lyrics on this new record.”
