Hell on Earth is a single by Springfield-based singer Nick Riverra, released as the lead single from his third studio Breathe. The single is Riverra's first since 2014's "Goodnight & Goodbye".

Background[]

After the release of his second studio album Nick in 2014, Riverra took a hiatus from music in order to focus on his acting career. After a few high-profile acting gigs, including Soul2Soul and The Eyes: Confrontation, Riverra began to miss making music and decided to work on his return. His friend and Soul2Soul co-star Rapsta Chik offered him a contract with her label, Livin' Life Records. Riverra worked on Breathe in secret, wanting the official release to be a surprise. "Hell on Earth" was chosen as the lead single as Riverra thought it'd be a good comeback after eight years away from music.

Composition[]

"Hell on Earth" is a punk song that runs for three minutes and twenty seconds, written by Nick Riverra and Jesse Shatkin and produced by the latter. The song lyrically discusses a desire to cause chaos and anarchy and fight against society, with Riverra declaring during the chorus that he wants to "raise hell on earth".

Critical Reception[]

"Hell on Earth" received positive reviews from critics. Adrianna Morgan of Springfield Shopper called "Hell on Earth" as well as the Breathe album a strong musical comeback for Riverra, with her pointing out that it was smart for him to make his return during the pop-punk revival of the mainstream music industry.

Music Video[]

A music video for the song was released on April 24, 2022, featuring Riverra performing the song with his guitar on a mountain of giant blaring speakers.
