Performer : Hammer Fight
Origin: US (New Jersey)
Album : Chug of War, 2013
Hammer Fight is thrash metal band from Atlantic City, NJ, USA. They are fresh from oven and only so far released an EP in 2012. The latest news from them was, a full length debut album titled "Chug of War" was finished in recording kitchen, ready to release but no further news. The tracks can be listen on their official Stereokiller website.
And through this also, we detected a new Iron Maiden's Be Quick or Be Dead cover. Hammer Fight fit their thrash-y sounds into the song. Fit quite well, the vocals come alive with harsh voices. Guitars are clear, the solos come in faithful but of course they getting in some spices. We welcome Hammer Fight into the thrash metal fighting pit, and make sure they get their worth attention as a payback to giving us a new Iron Maiden cover. Support their upcoming debut album, Chug of War as well.
Another enjoyable rendering of Be Quick Or Be Dead in thrash metal spirit.
