Album release date: 07-13-12 via Massacre Records

With the publication of the cover artwork and the whole track list, Stuttgart’s Sleaze Metal band Helldorados are giving an inside look into their debut album that will be released on July 13th. The internationally known artist and Unesco prize winner Timo Wuerz is responsible for the design.

After just signing  a worldwide recording contract with the Traditional Heavy Metal label Massacre Records in March, Helldorades were able to win another high-quality partner:  the artist and comic draftsman Timo Wuerz. “We have gotten to know Timo Wuerz by accident at an art and commerce congress. Between all of the geeks he looked more like us,“ claims Helldorados singer Pierre. At the same time they discovered many things they have in common, the love for rock music and art.“Moreover, we both grew up in the same small town. That probably connects“ complements Pierre, smiling. At the age of 14 Timo Wuerz already had his first exhibition, at the age of 20 he published his first album Aaron and Baruch.

Today he lives in Hamburg and is responsible for dozens of comics and books, among others Marvel, and for the creation of films, shows, theme parks, architecture, stamps, toys, posters and CD covers. The works of the Unesco prizewinner can also be seen in international galleries and museums, for example, in the museum of modern art, New York.

From February to April Helldorados spent time in the famous Horus Sound Studios in Hannover to record their album. A total of 12 pieces of music were created for the self entitled album. It was produced under the direction of Mirko Hofmann who already took up the four songs strong promotional EP a year ago. ELOY frontman and founder of the Horus Sound Studios, Frank Bornemann, acted as “a godfather”.

The result is musically versatile, somewhere between Metallica, Hardcore Superstar, the old Scorpions and ABBA. The track list reads as follows:

Helldorados – Sign with Massacre Records; July 2012 Album To Follow

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, heavy metal news, Music, rock music, rock music news, sleaze metal, sleaze rock with tags , , , , , on March 29, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

Helldorados sign with Massacre Records

Album Release planned for the 13th of July, 2012


The Sleaze Metal Band Helldorados, from Stuttgart Germany, sign a worldwide record contract with Massacre Records / Soulfood, after their last year’s promotional EP has received very positive reviews all over Germany. The full length album was now produced in the legendary Horus Sound Studios in Hannover (Scorpions, Helloween, Kreator, Victory, Guano Apes) and will be released Friday, 13th of July.

Just in February, 2011, Helldorados recorded a 4-song strong promotional EP in the legendary Horus Sound Studios in Hannover, under the direction of producer Mirko Hofmann. As “a godfather” acted Horus founder Frank Bornemann. From the beginning the ELOY frontman was enthusiastic from the sound, the independence and the logical approach of the Stuttgart quartet. Helldorados now line up themeselves in the list of Bands which recorded some of their most important albums there: Scorpions, Kreator, Helloween, Victory, Guano Apes to call only some.

“Good self and time management does not exclude creativity. We have worked the last 24 months every day very hard for this next logical step,“ Pierre (vocals), Steve (guitars), Gunnar (bass) and Chris (drums) are telling. The times when a newcomer got enormous sums of financial advance, are over definitively. Nowadays it is natural to have a prominent basic product to win other partners, Pierre is sure. With the Massacre Records contract a new chapter is whipped in the band’s history. “We are very glad about the cooperation with a so highly motivated and typically impressive band like Helldorados“, according to A&R manager Thomas Hertler.


Less Sex, Drugs and Roll `N Roll, rather the Blood, Sweat and Tears Helldorados had to experience since the beginning days in 2007. First the Band won a contest price for “best stage performance“ and one year later they sold 500 copies of their first self-distributed album “Just Rock”. More than 100 shows followed in Germany, Switzerland and Austria (supporting Bands like Bullet, Enforcer, Rhino Bucket or Bloodlights) as well as gala show appearances, e.g., at the historical Bregenzer sea stage during the european soccer cup 2008.

In addition the first partnerships begun with local brewery Dinkelacker-Schwaben Bräu, the English photographer icon Duncan Smith and from 2011 with the Wacken foundation well-known by the world for the biggest Heavy Metal festival. Instrument endorsements with Steve Clayton USA, Pyramid strings Germany or Dr. No Effects Netherlands could also be won. Besides, a global Merchandise licence deal was concluded with the German Art Worx Merchandising AG.

The high-quality production and the dynamic Songwriting of the promotional EP, has given Helldorados the first media attention in all relevant online Fanzines as well as articles in the appropriate magazines. RockHard Vol.296 “… at the latest the Stuttgart quartet presents itself with the ballad “Changes” and the final song “Shout Out” as an absolutely serious candidate on the national rock throne” or Metal Hammer April, 2012 “… these four tracks are worth every second… the EP is convincing with mature songs plus big melodies… Dear A&Rs of the nation – Sign Now!”

At the same time various radio stations played the songs without an entire Helldorados album out on the market. “We see ourselves furthermore as a Rock `N Roll Band in the niche and therefore, are glad about the wide attention. Everything more is add-on anyway,“ says Helldorados guitarist Steve.

Helldorados are musical somewhere between the hit potential of a catchy ABBA tune, the sleaze of Guns `N Roses and the striking force of Pantera. A strange mixture but it seems to function.
