The Hell’s first EP Sauve Les Requins took a lot of folks by surprise, not because the songs were necessarily bad (they weren’t) but because of how similar they were to a lot of Alkaline Trio’s earlier, rougher work, both sonically and musically. Matt Skiba has never shied away from diverse side projects—the moonlit goth of Heavens, the anthemic rock of Matt Skiba and the Sekrets, his own gaunt solo work—so The Hell’s debut, laced with hype, ended up feeling more like a superfluous exercise or a fun diversion than a game changer.
