BLOODY HAMMER

Melbourne, Autralia hardcore raw punx gone Oi!...and the result is fantastic. The path that BLOODY HAMMER tread upon is well worn, but there are reasons why we do some of the things that we do - and sometimes the reason is to make killer songs. From Yeap's strangely dark vocals, as if he is trying to sing an octave lower than his voice would like to be, to Tristan's perfect leads - this is flawless fist pumping action. They will inevitably face CRIMINAL DAMAGE comparisons, not so much due to musical similarities as to band member lineage (BLOODY HAMMER members come most notably from PISSCHRIST and SCHIFOSI), and those comparisons are certainly warranted, but these Aussie's eschew obvious hooks in favor of clever songs that sneak up on you, and with a track like "Street Kids" on your demo, folks like me are completely sold.

Yeah, this looks great. I was a big fan of Schifosi and Pisschrist, especially live. I'd like to see these guys hit the US...
