HELLHAMMER MUSIC PERFORMED BY TOM GABRIEL WARRIOR'S "TRIUMPH OF DEATH" CONFIRMED FOR THE HELLFEST FESTIVAL


Hellhammer existed for a mere two years, from May 1982 to May 1984. During this time, the band wrote material for three demos, one 12" EP, and the legendary Death Metal compilation album, along with a number of unrecorded songs. In light of Hellhammer's now mythically iconic status in the global metal scene, it is almost inconceivable that most of this music has never been performed life.

Hellhammer's successor group, Celtic Frost, formed by ex-Hellhammer members Tom Gabriel Warrior and Martin Eric Ain, initially played two of Hellhammer's songs but soon abandoned this habit due to the band rapidly developing its own
material. Tom Gabriel Warrior's Triptykon, founded in 2008, have played one or the other rare Hellhammer song during special occasions. The vast body of Hellhammer's work remains unperformed, however.

 

Until now.

The resurrection of the music of Hellhammer has been an idea Tom Gabriel Warrior and Martin Eric Ain have discussed for many years, sparked not least by their renewed collaboration in the reformed Celtic Frost in the 2000s and by the years of work on Warrior's second book Only Death Is Real (2009), which details the history of Hellhammer and early Celtic Frost.

Tom Gabriel Warrior: "Hellhammer will never return and will never be reformed. It is absolutely impossible to reform a band so closely linked to a very specific and unique period in time. I never considered it, no matter how substantial the offers that were pitched to me over the years. But Hellhammer's music exists, and it is an extremely important part of my life's path. And I would like to play it onstage before my demise."

The first step towards the realization of Triumph Of Death, named after Hellhammer's most infamous song and intended to be a very respectful and authentic tribute to Hellhammer, were taken years ago. Triumph Of Death consists of some of Warrior's closest friends; individuals who not only love this music but truly understand it. The line-up emulates Hellhammer's final incarnation of April/May 1984, when the group had added an additional guitarist.

 

Triumph Of Death will commence playing Hellhammer's music onstage in 2019. It is a project with an open end. Apart from wage considerations to perhaps release an occasional live EP, Triumph Of Death will not record any new music but is solely dedicated to performing both well-know and obscure Hellhammer songs. The project is based in Zurich, Switzerland.

 

Triumph of Death will perform live at the Hellfest Open Air Festival on June 21st, 2019.

Tom Gabriel Warrior (Hellhammer, Celtic Frost, Triptykon) - voice/guitars
Mia Wallace (Niryth, The True Endless, Kirlian Camera) - bass

HELLFEST NEWS

 

BRUTAL ASSAULT NEWS

If you want death metal in it’s finest, then you would love the fact, that one of the most controversial bands, DEICIDE, are coming with their new album Overtures of Blasphemy to decimate the fortress and crush your heads! Speaking of blasphemy and devil, on the other hand are standing DIABLO SWING ORCHESTRA, with their blend of many different genres, which is a thing not only for fans of avant-garde metal.
Following the massive response from the last summer, the forest fairy MYRKUR returns to our festival to conquer the sceptics yet again! The soft appearance can indeed be hiding for a dark soul… The quick succession also serves as a mean of apology for the unfinished show from this year. 


Virginia's heavy psychedelic quartet WINDHAND presents infectious display of songcraft cloaked in alluring atmosphere, molten fuzz, eerie psychedelia and ethereal vocals. The Ohio satanic royalty MIDNIGHT approaches metal from its dirty side and will finally send shockwaves of rock’n’roll violence through the BA crowds, subjugating and dominating all metalheads with lust, filth, and sleaze! You Can't Stop Steel! 
And the finale will belong to the black hordes, that shall look forward for continuation of the bleak, dark and disillusioned MGŁA style of black metal, coming forth with both their anticipated new record and a Brutal Assault performance! And NECROS CHRISTOS will commit their final hour with their final album Domedon Doxomedon to a performance cutting a swath of destruction through both the zeitgeist of modern heavy music and the walls of our beloved fortress with their first and last appearance at BA. Let’s kick off this update with OF MICE & MEN! Mix strong rock melodies reminiscing the golden era of hard rock with memorable hooks and juvenile energy of these contemporary American stars and you get a helluva strong blend of metalcore fit for festival crowds! If you lust for straight-forward aggressive new wave hardcore, you should look forward for LIONHEART, who are now obliterating stages and music charts alike with their latest record Welcome to The West Coast Pt. II! So far the line-up is: A PALE HORSE NAMED DEATH, AGNOSTIC FRONT, ANNAL NATHRAKH, ANATHEMA, COUNTING HOURS, CYTOTOXIN, DEICIDE, DESTRUCTION, DIABLO SWING ORCHESTRA, EKTOMORF, GUTALAX, HEILUNG, HIGHER POWER, HYPOCRISY, IMMOLATION, JINJER, JUNGLE ROT, KRISIUN, LIONHEART, MESHUGGAH, MGŁA, MIDNIGHT, MYRKUR, NAPALM DEATH, NECROS CHRISTOS, OF MICE & MEN, OCEANS OF SLUMBER, PERFECITIZEN, RAISED FIST, ROTTING CHRIST, SHAPE OF DESPAIR, SAOR, TANKARD, TESTAMENT, UNFATHOMABLE RUINATION, VARGRAV, WINDHAND, WOLFBRIGADE a WOE UNTO ME

Attention labels and bands!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Well, first off,if you guys want us to review your stuff in Old School Metal Maniac, you`ll have to send us hard copies. We`re not interested in mp3 or links etc. Can be a cdr or tape plus some inlay. These are fine. Further, do not send us stuff which is not in the Old School MetalManiac vein, all right? We deal with classic bands or young bands whose music is classic, traditional or old-school. These are fine and these are welcome. We`ve tried to be more open in the past so to say but it won’t work anymore. So from now on, we`ll not accept stuff which doesn’t meet these criteria. Thank you.
