Titel / Title Anthems of the Damned 
Label Sonic Attack Records 
Web www.myspace.com/hammercult
Total run time
Vö/Releasebereits erschienen / already released 

Those who visit Wacken Open Air regularly might already know the Israeli band Hammercult. In the year 2011, they won the Metal Battle newcomer competition at the WOA. As we can now hear, it was not only due to their exotic origin (for a Metal band) but also due to their raw power and high energy. The band takes no prisoners, the songs are really kicking ass and you must bang your head from the first second on. Their highspeed Thrash Metal is combined with some fragments of Death Metal, what makes it sound a bit like Legion of the Damned. Even if the music really shakes your bones (especially live), something is still missing. Due to a lack of variation concerning speed and rhythm, it is very difficult to distinguish between separate song parts. Most of the choruses and hooklines are not catchy enough to stay in your mind. But all in all, it is a good entry with some room for improvement. Keep on rockin, guys!
