“Lelahell is an Algerian metal band (Hard Rock), created in 2010 by Redouane Aouameur, who had previously been part of formations depicting the Metal (Neanderthalia, Litham, Carnavage, Devast). In January 2012, the one man band becomes a trio, and Lelahell’s EP (mini album) was released in August 2012 by Goressimo Records. A year later (in March 2013), the band performs at a festival in France, and leaves a good impression to the public, then they start an European tour that will take them, besides from France, to the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The first album, consisting of ten songs and titled Al Insane … The (Re) birth of Abderrahmane, was released in August 2014 in the United States. At the end of that year, in December, Lelahell starts another European tour.
For the future the group starts the writing of their second album and they aren’t thinking of stopping there!”
