Hell Riders were born to Riccardo Marcassa (Guitarist) and Gio Prestinari (Drummer). Both are at the same time old members of the historic band Porlezza known as Beyond Death Of Humanity thrash metal. The band lasted until 2014.
We have to wait until October 2017 before the two meet again and decide to form a new band proposing their old songs of the past in a heavy key. In January 2018, the band lined up among its lines Davide Girardi as vocalist, taken from Ticino, while in May of the same year, is completed with Ismael Meireles on bass, also from Ticino.
In May the band decided to record some rudimentary tracks releasing the Demo: Origins. In November of the same year the band changed again the lines adding to the drums Cesare Massaini, Caterina La Chimia on bass and Luca Manta as second guitar. On December 1, Hell Riders signed with Volcano Records and entered the studio to record their ﬁrst album on December 17, 2018.
The recordings end on 24 May 2019 with a new drummer, Angelo Cislaghi, while in September of the same year, a new member arrives, the young Enea Maina to replace Luca Manta. On November 1, 2019, the band’s debut album titled "First Race" was released. The race of the infernal motorcyclists does not stop and now I am working on the second disk deploying new members: Bobo on drums and Luca Piscopo on bass.
