In August 2012, “Goressimo Records” officially released the band’s debut EP. In summer 2013, LELAHELL embarked for their first European Tour.

The first full length album of LELAHELL 'Al Insane... The (Re) Birth Of Abderrahmane' was released in August 5th 2014 by Horror Pain Gore Death Productions From USA. In the end of the same year, LELAHELL toured Europe in support of that first album.

In January 1st 2016, Redouane Aouameur released “Highway to Lelahell", a 52 minutes documentary. This movie talks about his career, enriched for 23 years, which blends with the history of Metal in Algeria. In March 2016, the band embarked for a mini tour which took place in Austria and Switzerland.

In 2017 Lelahell kick off an European tour in two weeks. After the tour Lelahell entered the Fermata studio (Algiers) to record the guitars and vox for the second full length ‘Alif’. The album Alif features one of the most admired players in the world of technical death metal - Hannes Grossmann (ex Necrophagist, ex Obscura, Alkaloid, Blotted Science, Hate Eternal) on drums and was mixed and mastered at the famous Hertz Recording Studio (Bialystock, Poland) by Sławek and Wojtek Wieslawski (Behemoth, Vader, Decapitated, Hate).

Actual Lineup,

Redouane Aouameur : Guitars and Vocals Ramzi Curse : Bass Slave Blaster : Drums

Each Lelahell release is conceptually linked to the character of Abderrahmane, yet focusing on another evolutionary step—another chapter in his own book.
The new album "Alif" is now focusing on Abderrahmane's first steps in his new life, just like a child learning to speak, walk, learning about the world around him.
Yet this is full of foes and fears, that's why Abderrahmane needs to save himself from those dangers.
