Warhammer - Deathchrist (Remastered) (CD)
Release Date: 09/30/08
Re-release of the second full-length album from 1999 by the ultimate tribute band to the mighty Hellhammer in a new digipak edition limited to numerated 2000 copies.
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 (with two members forming another black metal icon - Celtic Frost), 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 second album 'Deathchrist' released 1999 strengthened their position as one of Germany's most valuable underground metal acts. To produce this album, the band used specific equipment they gathered for years - all in order to achieve the proper sound that would bring them even closer to Hellhammer. With 'Deathchrist' they definitely reached their goal - the album sounded like it was recorded back in the 80's, bringing back the same raw and unpolished style. Reviewers instantly begun comparing the LP's content to old Hellhammer recordings - the opening song 'This Graveyard Earth' was supposed to be a new version of 'The Third Of The Storms', while 'Defy The Dark' was seen as another 'Triumph Of Death'. But despite all the comparisons, it was clear that Warhammer was something much more serious than a mere Hellhamer clone. New digipak edition, limited to numerated 2000 copies. Digitally remastered using 24-Bit process on golden disc.
