Hell City Love EP was released and did great on college radio getting on the charts across the country. Regular play on Halifax's Q107 around time of release.
An album's worth of unreleased songs were recorded before members moved on.



After a long time in the making Hell City Love became a reality in the beginning of 2001. Coming from the underground of Hell City (Halifax NS, Canada) the made a big impression with a 6'8" singer and some songs guaranteed to get stuck in peoples heads. Through line-up changes and some moves fell apart 3 years later. Now they're looking to make another kick at the can and regroup better than ever.

Think the directness of Motorhead with the songwriting of Johnny Thunders, throw in the attitude of The Stooges and the unpredictability of early Replacements and you’ve got the basic formula for Hell City Love.

Comparisons to Fear, The New York Dolls and the Damned have come out of more than a few well-informed mouths. Read for yourself… "The Canadian answer to the kick ass rock stylings of a band like the Supersuckers or Turbonegro." (Caustic Truths) "HCL rocks somethin' fierce, with totally sing-along choruses, catchy melodies, hard-ass riffage." (NOW Magazine) “Kickass 5 track EP from Canadian rockgods who are stuck on the Motorhead trip and please don’t let them get off. This EP rocks… (Long Gone Losers) “Love songs to shogun to” (Nerve Magazine) “Ass-shaking, no-bullshit rock” (Splendid E-zine) “HCL merges Johnny Thunders drugged sophistication with traces of AmRep Records ferocity constructing some fine tunes” (Exclaim)
