One of the most insane records I've ever listened to, yet so addictive and creative at the same time. Truly a mastering of the balance between insanity and brilliance.

BEST TRACKS: Fiery, Feisty Snake-Woman, Boner X-Ray, Hyperventilationsystem, Providence by Gaslight, Daughters Spelled Wrong
This is more like it! “Hell Songs” showcases Daughters’ huge amount of creativity, addictive performances and instrumentals, intense production and great songwriting all bunched together in one 23-minute mathcore album!

Fav Tracks: Fiery, Recorded In a Pyramid, Hyperventilationsystem, The Fuck Whisperer, Daughters Spelled Wrong, Feisty Snakewoman

Least Fav Track: X-Ray

While Canada Songs was an assault the the senses, this record refines, underlines and increases the intensity and musicianship to create a truly unique and fun experience, with more memorable and interesting songs being made in the process. Its a great mathcore album that's just waiting to be explored.

Favorite Jams: Recorded Inside a Pyramid, The Fuck Whisperer, Hyperventilationsystem

Lest favorite: X-ray
An awesome mix of horrifically disgusting, riveting tracks. Tracks like Xray and Hyper are addicting. The last two tracks are a fantastic closing to this album. This 23minute collection is just an awesome experience. There is no track that I don't like.

While it's not perfect, Hell Songs show's Daughters really finding their own sound, instead of what seemed like a desperate attemt at mimicing The Locust with their last LP. Their screeching and disorienting guitarwork, and booming drums are still present in tenfold, but this lp is heavier, more sinister and well, more hellish.
Hell Songs is just as wild as Canada Songs, but it's more of a slow burn than a punch in the gut this time.
