Hellevate is an up and coming Speed/Thrash Metal band based out of Kansas City, Missouri, USA. The band was originally founded by Danöwar in Kansas City in the mid-2000’s 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 has established itself by sharing the bill with many nationally touring bands, including Exodus, Kreator, Accept, Overkill, Ghoul, Mushroomhead, Hemlock just to name a few.

2013, Hellevate received a fresh injection of talent with the inclusion of vocalist Drew “Blood” Lufkin and guitarist Josh “The Boss” Cole. The band released a full length album, “Weapons Against Their Will”,  earlier this year.
