Warhammer, the world's best Hellhammer imitation, debuted in 1997 with The Winter Of Our Discontent and survived until 2001, by which time personal differences had effectively destroyed the band from within. They agreed to record one last album (Curse Of The Absolute Eclipse, which would be their fourth) before disbanding. Broken up for several years, the itch to play again returned, and in 2006 they were back at it with renewed vigor. Really, Hellhammer is the beginning and the end when describing Warhammer's sound. This is not a band who's merely influenced by someone else, but a band who has explicitly and painstakingly set out to emulate another band's style. Essentially Warhammer is a Hellhammer tribute band, except that instead of playing cover songs like tribute bands normally do, Warhammer simply write and play songs that sound exactly like Hellhammer. It's all here, the tinny, simplistic drums, the droning guitars, the grunting vocals, songs that range from doomish to uptempo, but never once straying from the Hellhammer ethic.
