On their new album, GALLHAMMER stand solidly in the tradition of metallic 80s bands like HELLHAMMER and AMEBIX. The ladies are strongly rooted in the metal genre, thus you can hear some DARKTHRONE influences throughout all of their songs. The 80s roots come through most clearly with the song structure that definitely reminds of the well-known old school. Luckily, the band understood to create seven songs out of all these influences, which can do both punch you in the face and give you something to think about. There isn´t anything dull to be found on here, GALLHAMMER gave lots of thought to figuring out how they could best work up their influences to complex songs. And they succeeded like the concluding rage fest “108=7/T-NA” proves as well as the groove monster “Sober”. In short: Those who like raw music will be very happy with “The End”.
