Hammerdrone: Mixes intense aggression, dark atmosphere and elegant melodies.

Hammerdrone - A Trinity Of Rage

Since 2010, Hammerdone has been honing a distinct sound that mixes intense aggression, dark atmosphere and elegant melodies to deliver death metal that is both epic and catchy. No clean singing, no symphonic.

Calgary, Canada’s death metal juggernaut, Hammerdrone, returns with their most ambitious recording yet: A Trinity Of Rage. Deliberately written as a concept release and painstakingly crafted over the course of four years, the EP is accompanied by an original short story, Eversor (available as a bonus download via Bandcamp ). The story revolves around the fictional second book of Revelation, in which is foretold the threat of Heaven’s destruction at the hands of Eversor, The Destroyer. As the written story of Eversor ends, the EP begins, with both the music and lyrics of the three songs completing the narrative arc that the story introduces.

Flowing through three parts, Part I – Rage, Corporeal, Part II – Rage, Besieged and Part III – Rage, Consummated it is aggressively heavy and hauntingly melodic; the band incorporates a variety of black and progressive metal influences to present an EP that both pushes the boundaries and embraces the roots of their old-school, melodic death metal origins. Vocalist Graham states:

«This EP is our finest work to date. We worked longer and harder on every single aspect of it; from the song-writing to the recording, to the artwork, lyrics and the story.  It took us a full 4 years to pull together and when we finally started recording, enter the COVID dragon to screw up our timing some more! We recorded and mixed most of the EP ourselves, as we did with our last album, but this time we tracked the drums in an outside studio (the Sound Priory in Calgary, AB) and got richer, deeper and more natural drum sounds than we’ve ever captured before. To cap it all off, we engaged the infamous Jens Bogren to master the final mixes – we are big fans of his work with Amon Amarth!  It’s the first time we’ve had a real professional involved in the mastering and the experience was awesome – the final master is clean and loud, but keeps the raw nature of the mix».

Mixed by the band and then burnished to shine by the professional mastering skills of the legendary Jens Bogren (Amon Amarth, Be’lakor, Rotting Christ, etc) at Fascination Street Studios in Sweden, the result is an epic and forceful musical expression of betrayal, broken faith and vengeance.

Melodic, intense, and emotive, Hammerdrone is recommended for fans of Amon Amarth, Rotting Christ and Kataklysm.

At once aggressively heavy and hauntingly melodic, the band incorporates a variety of black and progressive metal influences to present an EP that both pushes the boundaries and embraces the roots of their old-school, melodic death metal origins.

About Ulf Backstrøm (7174 Articles)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
