Finally! This seminal band, Made up of Tom Warrior, Martin Ain, and Bruce Day, are back in release after a long stretch on moratorium. What can I say? This music is designed to get your blood flowing, your heart racing, and your mind full of unsavory thoughts. The band (with the hokey monikers Satanic Slaughter, Slayed Necros, and Denial Fiend) blazes through these 6 songs like 3 men possessed by demons. Hellhammer were one of the first of the death/thrash bands, and their image and attitude helped to shape that of black metal in the late `80’s and `90’s. Give a listen to DarkThrone, Mayhem, or the first Emperor demos and you’ll definitely hear Hellhammer’s influence.If you’re a fan of metal or just curious about it, pick this one up. You won’t be sorry.
