However, me recently came across another act suffering from carbon copy syndrome - Warhammer. Difference is these bunch uberfans admit they are just paying tribute to their all-time fave metal godz, Hellhammer. Fer the uninitiated, Hellhammer were the previous incarnation of Celtic Frost. (Found out bout Warhammer when me read that Tom G Warrior was invited by Terrorizer mag to review their four LPs & the man gave it the fooking thumbs up!).
Hellhammer's blurred, fuzzy guitars, basement-next-door drums & Tom G Warrior's early Hellspawn vocals are recreated to near perfection by this German outfit. Listen to any of their four albums & you'll be fooking transported back to 1982! Me kids you not, Warhammer spent years seeking out equipment that would give them that exact tonal quality of those Hellhammer recordings ie PISS POOR SOUND!
Their dedication to their art is certainly worthy of a listen. And trust me, you will not be disappointed. Fans of early Euro-Death/Thrash scene will be engaged in some serious dandruff removal in front of their stereos. Basic, primitive & fooking powerful. Warhammer will deliver a blow to yer cranium like a Viking's spiked club to yer soft furry skull. And you'll be screaming, "GIMME MORE!" . . .
Fer a taste of this gloriously retro slice of HEAVY FOOKING METAL, me recommends their Doom Messiah album. To download Warhammer's Doom Messiah (2000), please click here: http://rapidshare.com/files/134482296/Warhammer_-_The_Doom_Messiah_2000_Alemania_deathfans.blogspot.com.rar
ps: Will try to post the links to their other albums sometime in the future. Do let me know what you think. Have a good fooking weekend of headbanging!!!
