HELL MUŅECO was originally the name of a stoner rock band that Gale La Gamma, ex-drummer of Demonia and Psedo Amorfeus, was trying to start in the mid-2000s. The monicker was finally used when Frank called Gale to sing on a couple of songs he originally wrote as a follow up to World Funeral's "Caledarium et frigidarium".

HELL MUŅECO started with the intention of writing slow, groovy and heavy riffs with weird guitar harmonies and a touch of gothic (mainly because of Todesco's guitar playing). All bandmembers are well experienced musicians, and they are influenced by stoner, heavy doom & NWOBHM bands.

In 2009 they recorded their 5 songs debut, "Doom core", which showcases old-school doom metal "big" riffs alongside twin guitar harmonies reminiscent of gothic metal, dark rock vocals and lyrics dealing with socially conscious subjects. 

The same year, Frank Wells started writing songs for a new EP, "Replacing God", with a darker approach on the lyrical side, plus a groovier and heavier riffing provided by their new lead and rhythm guitarist, Mirko Bosco (from Witches' Brew). Gone are the "gothic metal" tendencies of the previous recording, "Replacing God" is just doom, doom and doom again!
