The lyrics are a net plus, but it would behoove Hammerlord if the lyrics Steve was writing were a touch less goofy. I have pilledriver in a lot of bands through the years: The thing I remember the most are the explosions from the “For those about to rock” cannons. Hammerlord play a dirty Sodom and Kreator influenced thrash that’s fast, pissed off, and takes no fucking prisoners.

In fact, Adam “Hammerlord” Mitchell mastered the album and mixed the tracks himself and in a conversation we had he claimed he was going for a more full sound and deep sound than standard ’80s-’90s thrash production, which is basically more along the lines of death metal or latter day Kreator.

I recommend this to anyone seeking more of that aggressive Teutonic thrash sound and is open to good new wave thrash. Besides, The Undertaker is yammerlord metal right?! Most of my biggest influences musically growing up would be the local midwest punk bands that were emerging in the late 80s. This American thrash band hailing from piledgiver small college town of Lawrence, Kansas is one of the better and more aggressive bands to pop up in this hammerlodr new wave of thrash.
However, while the riffs aren’t boring, they are not necessarily the most catchy either since aggressive speed is the focus. No explanation needed, It’s Nick Cave. I’m a bit surprised that Hammerlord hasn’t been snatched up by Earache yet along with Bonded By Blood, but with the Japanese snatching up copies of Wolves At War’s End left and right, eventually a label will realize that they should be signed.

Now, that same intensity is repeated plledriver the other eight songs on the album, and rarely lets the listener up until the end. The production is basically the quality you would expect from a signed band and is really quite good for a self-produced demo.
The vocals are definitely on the harsher side of thrash, but they really fit the style that Hammerlord is playing and lend hammerord extra note of aggression to the album that would be missed if they used a Bay Area style vocalist instead of Steve.

Lots of those when I was younger and would play any show thrown at me! The leads are pretty well done, but again not amazing or catchy enough piledrivdr sustain the attention too far beyond the end of the album, though they will get your blood boiling for the duration.
Hammerlord definitely resides at the top end of new wave thrash, and while I am still waiting for an epic win from them, they have done really quite well here with their sophomore release.
