Hammerkill Reborn

Hammerkill (formed 1989) were among the first bands to combine the genres of 80’s style Thrash Metal and dubstep. Their lyrics focus mostly on suicides of old people. Although the debut album, Bred to Kill with Hammers, wasn't a big hit, the other albums were big smashes, including whichever one had that song "Ikea’s HorseBalls, Meat Scandal!" on it, not to be confused with a porno by the same name.

Hammerkill (formed 1989) were among the first bands to combine the genres of 80’s style Thrash Metal and dubstep. Their lyrics focus mostly on suicides of old people. Although the debut album, Bred to Kill with Hammers, wasn't a big hit, the other albums were big smashes, including whichever one had that song "Ikea’s HorseBalls, Meat Scandal!" on it, not to be confused with a porno by the same name.

Their only show took place on Chuck Schuldiner's Bar Mitzvah. As more people wanted them to do more live shows, they decided to become reclusive, and even though everybody knows where they live, they haven't been seen since.

Hammerkill is noted as being the explosive force behind the "Big Bang", an action that most scientists, atheists, and LSD abusers believe created the universe. Lead Vocalist Eddie Thrasher (a.k.a. "Sweaty Eddie"), the group's frontman, was born to The Virgin Mary on the sun, and hitched across the galaxy on rouge comets. Thrasher came down to Earth by the power of the Holy Spirit, riding the meteorite that allegedly killed the dinosaurs. (This mass murder has not yet been proven in a court of law..

Upon arriving to Earth and witnessing the chaos that his death-rock had brought upon the planet, Thrasher decided to try and bring peace to mankind by performing unbelievable Thrash Metal songs to crowds of drunks alongside several musically inept mortals. They would go on to become Hammerkill. Thrasher is seated at the right hand of The Father He Does Not Know*.

Hammerkill has received praise from critics throughout their career due to their great songwriting. Lyrics such as heevan resthisonhisheadonahammer made of concrete... agaaaaiiiin, and hevaaaaan he’s gonna show em heavaaan but he’s gonna be workinforthe deviaaaaal, Hammerkill has managed to maintain this quality all the way through to there most recent effort, Progressive Concept Album. They fucking nailed it with that on.

The band's critically acclaimed 4th Studio album Eyehategodsomuch (2013) was anchored by a chart-topping jingle of the same name. Partially recorded using Eddie Thrasher’s trademark Blowdryer, it debuted at number one in numerous countries, selling 10 million copies worldwide upon its first week, surpassing Michael Jackson's legendary Thriller (1982) album as the fastest-selling album ever. Eyehategodsomuch has sold over 35 million copies worldwide as of April 2013. HARPOONS THRUST IN THE SKY! and WHITE, SNAIL! HOLY, GRAIL! were follow-up records, and were released in 2013 and 2013 respectively to similar financial success and positive press response, but parts of both albums were again recorded using Thrasher’s very own Blowdryer.

Hammerkill’s WHITE, SNAIL! HOLY, GRAIL!, released on August 12th 1991, is their sixth studio album and their first as a lame mainstream pop band. Though better than the “Load of Bull Spunk” albums and far better than “St. Trash Can", the album disappointed many hardliner fans who wanted an album comprised of ten “Torn Between Hammers and Hentai Porn” type numbers.

With mega-hits like “Bleeding Women” and “I Don’t Trust Anyone that Bleeds for a Week and Doesn’t Die “, Hammerkill reached their goal of mainstream success, which was merely a means to their ultimate goal of tormenting Fall out Boy with their unparalleled chart-dominators.

*Go.

it was like 09 and I said this would be the best Thrash Revival band ever and guess what « hide
