Hailing from Calgary, Canada, Hammerdrone have been an anchor in the Canadian underground metal community for just shy of a decade. Over this time, they have developed a face-melting brand of old school melodic death metal, at once aggressive and mellifluous. Combining intense aggression, dark atmosphere and elegant melodies, Hammerdrone’s powerfully intense live show is a “once seen, never forgotten” experience that is showcased in this video…..
No clean singing, no symphonics, jus death metal for fans of At The Gates, Kataklysm, Carcass, Unleashed, etc.
“An Ever Increasing Wave” is about facing the damage that is caused by depression; about mentally disintegrating in the face of overwhelming and yet ultimately futile rage; a helpless fury amplified by the realisation that the damage is not confined to the sufferer, but is also destroying those around them. Recorded at drummer Vinnie Cardellini’s Goldfinch Studios in Calgary, AB. Artwork by www.fishtailedgoat.com.
Hammerdrone have previously released two full-length albums (Dark Harvest, 2017 and Clone of Europa, 2014) and two EPs (Rituals of Battle, 2018 and A Demon Rising, 2012).
