Raise Hell  

Raise Hell formed in 1995, and having gone through the usual lineup and name changes (they recorded their only demo as In Cold Blood, and in fact they didn't switch the name until just before the first album's release), have released three albums thus far. Musically, Raise Hell is most influence by prime thrash, though with a modern feel due to the hefty, thick guitar tone and the somewhat throaty vocals of Jonas Nilsson. Not quite in a league of their own, but a capable and recommended thrash band in their own right.
