Deathhammer 'Onward To The Pits' review
'Onward To The Pits'
From the opening riff of 'Onward..' it is obvious the members of Deathhammer are influenced by the classic black/thrash sounds of the mid 80's/early 90's. With the aggressive, whirlwind guitars mixed with the drummers aggressive blasts of fury, the band does draw from their influences but without being a total clone band. There is enough originality and well-thought out guitar patterns to keep the old-school fanatics happy without having to rip-off any one elder god band or certain country from the golden era of speed/thrash metal. If you crave chaotic,insane blackened speed metal then look no further. Deathhammer is here to crush all.
('Onward To The Pits' is one heluva album! This is a fuckin' nuclear power plant of viciously ripping thrash and menacing black metal that's due to annihilate at any given listen. Deathhammer rank up high on my list alongside Aura Noir for wrecking musical havoc, no mean feat in itself, ain't it? This gets 9 out of 10 from me - ED)
