The follow-up to their acclaimed 2016 debut album I’m Not Well sees the three-piece pushing the vicious bite that fuels their band to new…

Cruz Del Sur Music is proud to announce the release, on February 23, 2018, of the self-titled debut album from German thrashers Old Mother Hell. There is nowhere to hide as a power trio.
