Band Biographies: HELLEVATE


HELLEVATE is an up and coming speed/thrash metal band based out of Kansas City, Missouri.

The band was originally founded by Danöwar in Kansas City in the mid-2000s with the intention of being the most Metal of Heavy Metal bands. Like all bands, the up-and-coming HELLEVATE endured several fluctuating lineups and styles for several years. The band came together in late 2009 with drummer RJ “The Machine Gun” Whitmer (brother of Danöwar), and Zack “The Ripper” Burke on bass guitar. Current vocalist Erik “Jager” Schmutzler and guitarist Josh “The Boss” Cole joined the band in early 2013.

HELLEVATE released the first EP in 2010 and a self-titled full-length album in late 2012. The band released a second EP “Kill Confirmed” in 2014 with the new band lineup along with the full-length album, “Weapons Against Their Will” released in July of 2016.

The band has established itself by sharing the bill with many nationally touring bands, including Exodus, Kreator, Accept, Overkill, Ghoul, Venom Inc., and Danzig, just to name a few. With a great lineup and a bright future ahead of them, HELLEVATE continues to grow as a musical force in the metal world and intends to dominate and annihilate for many years to come.
