Warhammer - The Doom Messiah (Remastered + Bonus Tracks) (CD)
Release Date: 09/30/08
Re-release of the third full-length album from 2000 by the ultimate tribute band to the mighty Hellhammer. Includes 3 bonus tracks!
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. Warhammer's third album, 'The Doom Messiah' (released in 2000), proved that the group were worthy of reanimating the 'ancient deathnoize' style... While some critics didn't see a point in bringing back the vile Hellhammer stylistic, fans were certain - Warhammer was the next big thing on the contemporary metal scene, bringing a true 'blast from the past' that swept away all posers and metal-wannabes. New digipak edition, limited to numerated 2000 copies. Digitally remastered using 24-Bit process on golden disc.
