Hellsound Full Collection (1995 - 1997)
Updated: Sep 17, 2022
It is Wednesday, the worst day of the week. You can see the weekend just ahead of you, but it's unreachable. So you need a kick to get you through these few days. Have I got something special for you? A series not forgotten about, but sadly did not get the deserved platform. Hellsound, anyone? This was released between 1995 and 1997 and then just died. It probably had something to do with the fact that Hardcore wasn't as interesting as it was a few years ago, and they saw the writing on the wall. So they pulled the plug. And to this day I am sad to not have seen more of these being released. They had potential, and were something completely different (in my opinion, and in my music collection). Why ID&T, why did you pull the plug?
I had them all. Yes, I had them all. But not all in the 90s. I purchased the last one back in 2021, so I could actually say I had a full collection. And they still bring me a lot of pleasure. And the reason why? Well, you had your standard compilations, but this one seemed to focussed on a bit of everything. Everything, but a bit more rougher and tougher. You can't have happy shit on CDs with covers like this one, right? And it's called Hellsound. You had your Hardcore tunes, Gabber tunes, but also Terror, Speedcore, Acid, and more. Slightly different, slightly harder. And it's like this compilation was made for those who liked their music even faster and harder.
The collection only ran for 2 years, but it also spawned a new label, called Hellsound Records. But I'm not talking about that label, but only these CDs. These 7 glorious CDs with brilliant names such as 'Gabberland', 'The Paradise Of Pain', 'Hard As Hell', 'Dead By Dawn', 'Blessed Are The Sick', and 'As Millions Suffer...' . Yes, not your standard stuff. And even thought the collection Thunderdome was banned by my parents, they would have banned this one as well. But don't assume that the BPMs are all ridiculous and the music is just weird and obnoxious. This collection stood out from the rest by having a mixture of everything, literally everything.
Maybe it was a collection of CDs with rejected songs? Songs that weren't commercially viable, but were still given a platform. Hellsound wasn't ID&T's biggest CD collection. And some of the tunes were literally garbage, even to this day they haven't aged well. But it gave people the chance to deviate to something different, if they were bored with the standard Thunderdome-esque collections.
So, if you've never heard or seen these CDs, you are in for a treat. Here are the tracklist for all 7 CDs (yes all tracklists)! Enjoy.

Thank God each CD only contained one CD, and not more than 1. It already took me a while to type each tracklist. But typing this brings back a lot of memories. Hours of looking at each CD, booklet, and just being amazed by the music.
If you've got the full collection, you can hear throughout how Hardcore in general progresses. It moves at a steady pace, and the quality changes too. The timespan of these CDs is only 2 years, but within those 2 years the music grew more and more, and producing wise it also improved. Yes, there were some stinkers, but generically speaking, the music improved.
Opinion warning: the worst of these CDs (to me) are the first and the last CD. 2 to 6 were the best.
This is a good representation of Hardcore music from around 1995 to 1997. Yes, you can go for the standard compilations, but if you want to hear what Hardcore had to offer back then, I think Hellsound is the right compilation for you. Especially if you like your Hardcore a bit faster, rougher, and generically tougher.
Each CD had one track I listened to over and over again. But which ones? Well, these:
Hellsound : DJ XD - Uncle X (Part 1)
Hellsound 2 : E-De-Cologne - Kill 4 Jesus
Hellsound 3 : The Prophet - Why Not?
Hellsound 4 : Sounds Of Doom - Regret!!
Hellsound 5 : Rotterdam Terror Corps - No Happy Shit
Hellsound 6 : Count Negative & MC Drokz - Lie & Die
Hellsound 7 : Brain Acardy - Ya Gangsta Music
You might have a different opinion, but there also a shit ton of crap songs on each CD, most notably the 'Fuck Macarena' song . What a load of rubbish that song is. Not even worth mentioning as a Hardcore song. Embarrassing, to say the least.
But however you feel about the good and the bad songs, this compilation was important, and still is to this day. It has stood the test of time, and it gave us a wide variety of what Hardcore had to offer. Hardcore wasn't this standard style, and it had so much to give. You should definitely check this compilation out, if you haven't already. An important collection of records from the glorious years of 90s Hardcore. A glimpse into the past, and a good representation of what producers could do back in the days.
Loving this compilation. Sad that it stopped after the seventh instalment, but it had to be this way.
But thankfully for you all, there are a shit ton of videos on YouTube for you all to enjoy, so here they are!
