HELL THEATER was born in October 2009.
The idea consisted on mixing pure heavy/thrash metal with theatrical horror themes.
After some first line ups changes, the band was finally ready to start composing their first songs.
Starting November 2010 ALEX joined HELL THEATER playing bass and starting from December 2010, after testing a lot of guitarists needed to complete the band, BOB AXX was the ideal choice to match Brian and complete the band.
