If hell had a choir...
It would sound like hellscore.
Hellscore is a metal a cappella choir that has been featured in the critically acclaimed Therion album “Leviathan” (2021), the latest Amorphis album “Queen of Time” (2018), a new Ayreon album “Transitus” (2020), the latest Orphaned Land album “Unsung Prophets and Dead Messiahs” (2018), Patty Gurdy‘s great album “Pest & Power” (2019), Alestorm’s “Seventh Rum Of A Seventh Rum” (2022), the Scardust studio albums – “Strangers” (2020) and “Sands of Time” (2017), and another Arjen Lucassen project, Star One’s third album (2022).
Hellscore, formed in 2016, is a 40~ member vocal ensemble of male and female metal heads who sing metal classics, from Iron Maiden and Judas Priest to System of a Down, Slipknot and Linkin Park. A complete metal experience forged from the blend of human voices.
This unholy union of Metal and A cappella is made possible by Orphaned Land choir leader and Scardust vocalist, Noa Gruman (Arranger & Conductor) who brought her lifelong passion and work with vocal music (Israeli Opera, Israeli Philharmonic, Royal Academy of Music in Aalborg), into the metal realm.
In 2018, Hellscore performed on the main stage of Europa Cantat vocal music festival & supported Orphaned Land at Israel’s legendary Shuni Fort.
In 2019 Noa Gruman represented the Royal Academy of Music Aarhus/Aalborg and gave a rock and metal singing Masterclass at Aarhus Vocal Festival, where Hellscore won “The Most Innovative Arrangement” prize in the choir competition.
In 2020-2021 the pandemic didn’t stop Hellscore, and they continued to rehearse, work, consantly create special musican content, record, film and release new music videos, take part in eAAVF, and even perform a few live shows (all whilest following the safetly covid rules).
In 2022 Hellscore launched a highly successful crowdfunding campaign for their video to the hit “Going Under” by Evanescence – A Cappella cover. Hellscore keeps on rocking hard and constantly working on producing new songs, shows, and content for their fans.
