Warhammer - Curse Of The Absolute Eclipse (Remastered) (CD)
Release Date: 09/30/08
Re-release of the fourth full-length album from 2001 by one of Germany's most valuable underground metal acts. The ultimate tribute band to the mighty Hellhammer.
Any black metal enthusiast will surely recall the date of March 7th, 1984. This was the day when Hellhammer's most prominent work - 'Apocalyptic Raids' - was officially released in Europe. The short, four-track EP is to this day considered a masterpiece of dirty and dark sound, conjoining the best elements of black, doom and thrash metal. While Hellhammer disbanded shortly after this release, their legacy did not die... Ten years later a young group of devoted fans decided to bring back the legend and form the ultimate tribute band to the mighty Hellhammer. Their fourth full-length album was released when the group was going through some serious tensions. Still, 'Curse Of The Absolute Eclipse' (2001) managed to live up to the legacy, bringing another dose of classic annihilation. Although many reviewers pointed out several references to early Celtic Frost, Warhammer remained true to their formula and delivered their most mature release yet. Unfortunately, soon after the LP landed in stores, the group disbanded after a number of violent conflicts among the members. New digipak edition, limited to numerated 2000 copies. Digitally remastered using 24-Bit process on golden disc.
