Hammer Fight - EP

Hardcore seems to have a curse these days.

It seems like so many bands are focused on sounding like Entombed and using symbols from the occult that they probably don't have any idea what they mean. It's created a subgenre that needs to be abandoned and washed away.

When it first came around, it was cool but it's so commonplace that it's more annoying than not.

Sometimes there's a band that changes that around and they're considered leaders and not followers.

The band that has the potential to change that is Hammer Fight.

I don't really know a whole lot about them or where they're from but chances are that they'll steal your drink and fuck your girl, Lemmy style.

What you have here is 7 songs of nothing but high octane ass kicking themes for your next bar brawl.

They don't really rely on the core as much as some bands would. Aside from a few breakdowns that are placed tastefully, you're getting a full throttle march through the better days of Motorhead's discography. These songs are just that awesome.

My only complaint about this is that it's too short. Clocking in at under 20 minutes, you have to wonder if their imminent full length is going to cause motherfucking tremors on different continents.

I know I'm gloating over this release but it's rare to find a brand new band that is this good and has potential to get kids to stop thinking that they're fucking Aleister Crowley and focus more on the exquisiteness of KICKING ASS.

is there a way you can make the volume not reset at the start of every song? not complaining, just suggesting.
