Welcome to the Hell,” the new single by the eclectic Canadian pop maestro known as nasmore, taps into his unique sonic formula: an amalgam of stadium rock, goth-industrial textures, modern R&B and cinematic scores.

This track is a collaboration between nasmore and two amazing artists: Neil Taylor and La Strange. There is so much chemistry going on here, and the emotional impact that drives “Welcome to the Hell” is absolutely undeniable. Neil playing on Tears for Fears’ album Songs from the Big Chair, including “Everybody Wants To Rule the World,” is part of music history. A former member of new wave legends Tears for Fears and Robbie Williams band and a long-term collaborator with stars like Tina Turner, Chris De Burgh, Natalie Imbruglia, Metallica, Phil Collins, Kylie Minogue, and more, Neil wastes little time in making his contribution to the new song heard, lashing out with gritty dazzling vocals and fierce guitar licks that perfectly mingle with La Strange’s beautiful and yet powerful voice.

nasmore comments:

“Some songs make you cry, and some songs you skip forward, and then there are songs that immerse you into their world, putting a sarcastic smile on your face and dragging your mind to visit dark places—like Hell, for example. Just for a day? Stay in a hotel situated by the burning sea of lava with a nice view of torture and punishment. Most of us humans do not require a reservation. Just come pick your nightmare, and we will serve it to you cooked to perfection. No matter what your plans are, you are always Welcome to the Hell.”
