REVIEW : T.H.L. / Thirteenth Hell Level (2015)

T.H.L. (Thirteenth Hell Level) is an Italian female-fronted rock/classic hard rock band, that was formed in 2010, and "Thirteenth Hell Level" is its debut album. The name T.H.L. (Thirteenth Hell Level), a sort of provocation, sums up all the topics faced in the lyrics of each song: war (“War”), modern society (“Sociopathic”), drugs (“Erythroxylum”), the road to death (“Long way To Redemption”), rape (Forget) and life seen as something opposite to “The Bad”.
