Great old-school death metal with war theme lyrics. Drums sucks badly, that cannot be called groove anymore, just shitty playing. But I used to it. The sounds are maybe too clear for asphyx. But still, this is one of the top-3 albums for this year.
It's old school balls out aggressive brutal death metal occasionally contrasted by the occasional slower doom-death sections which help sustain focus throughout the 50 or so minutes of musicrCompare Deathhammer to Deicide's latest release - both are no frills death metal - one is from a once legendary band who've been coasting for years; the other has produced album after album of outstanding music throughout his career and Deathhammer is no exception: it's a superior example of pure aggression - the way it sounded when both Benton and van Drunen sounded back before anyone came up with all the fusions and hybrid genres that we have today.
Upon first listen, I thought it was pretty good, but I did expect more also. I really like his vocals though, they remind me of John Tardy. Like you said above, I think the drums kind of lack in the production sound, it seems compressed heavily.
