Rising out of the ashes of numerous Long Island hardcore bands, such as Scraps and Heart Attacks, Subterfuge, and the Back-Up Plan, and releasing their demo in 2004, the members of This Is Hell continue to play hardcore that represents a melding of past influences and originality. Despite line-up and label changes, the band soldiered onward and recently released Black Mass on Rise Records this month. Punknews staff interviewer Andrew Clark spoke with guitarist Rick Jimenez about the new LP, disregarding scene trends, and professional wrestling being America's purest cultural institution.
