Before they were creating proto-black metal in CELTIC FROST, guitarist/vocalist Tom Gabriel Fischer and bassist Martin Eric Ain were members of seminal blackened thrash outfit HELLHAMMER. If you're a fan of CELTIC FROST, HELLHAMMER, or extreme metal in general, you should definitely check out HELLHAMMER's new demo anthology, "Demon Entrails", which sheds new light on a band that influenced generations of aggressive music.
Metalkult.com recently conducted a candid and introspective interview with the elusive Tom Gabriel Fischer covering a number if topics including everything you could possibly need to know about the legendary demo collections. Click here to stream the audio tracks now.
Active from 1982 to 1984, Switzerland's HELLHAMMER released three seminal demos, "Satanic Rites", "Death Fiend", "Triumph of Death", one full-length, "Apocalyptic Raids", one seven-inch, "Buried and Forgotten", as well making appearances on various compilations such as the "Metal Massacre" series. These early recordings, either by design or by sheer coincidence, sounded far more satanic, hardcore and metal-charged than most of the heavy metal at the time.
