Hexenhammer

Originally Hexenhammer was conceived in 1984 with members Ronnie Dean on guitar, bassist Tony Pruitt, drummer Andy Thornburg, guitarist Gene Davis, and vocalist Mark Warren. Over the next four years the band would re-locate to Jacksonville, Fl. and back to Tennessee while trying to find a foothold in any welcoming metal scene they could find, meanwhile struggling to hold together a solid line-up. In 1987 the band settled in Columbia, TN. and after some personnel changes an official line-up of the band would be solidified the following year.


That same year in 1989 Hexenhammer would issue a two song demo quickly followed by the D.I.Y full-length release ‘Underground’ in 1990. The release would receive considerable press in zines and metal magazines both in the U.S. and abroad. Unfortunately as things seemed to start rolling for Hexenhammer that year, they wou

ld also mysteriously disappear without a trace.
For years since Hexenhammer’s disappearance fans and collectors alike have spoken of the band as if some obscure myth. Now after years of searching Heaven and Hell Records has finally found them and will soon release the Hexenhammer recordings for the first time ever on CD. All tracks will be re-mastered by Jamie King at The Basement Studios from the best source material available, including the ‘Underground’ full-length, and some bonus tracks. The CD will also include never before seen photos, lyrics and an essay. Cover art by Steven Cobb.

RAZOR NEWS

It is with our greatest pleasure that we announce Wings of Metal festival’s second headliners… Canada’s very own first-wave thrash metal legends RAZOR! And as we love bringing you surprises, we will be celebrating Razor's 30th anniversary by having them play a 75-minute set of 1985-only era songs, which will include all the classics from "Executioner's Song" and "Evil Invaders!" This historical and intimate event will surely scar everyone in attendance for the rest of their days… These Speed Merchants’ insane unsurpassed live savagery will pummel us until the walls of the venue explode! Furthermore, in 2012, original guitarist Dave Carlo was diagnosed with stage 2 oral cancer… he since recovered and was considered cancer-free, so we feel extremely lucky to have RAZOR co-headline the festivall!! The band is currently working on a new record which should come out next year. EVIL INVADERS!!!!!!!
