Damnations Hammer was formed as a homage to the avant-garde
metal of the 1980's by guitarist/vocalist Tim Preston (the band is
completed by bassist Andy Whitehead and drummer Steve Leach).
Taking inuences from the likes of Celtic Frost and Candlemass the
vision of the band is to create dark, doom laden metal incorporating
Damnations Hammer’s debut album Disciples of the Hex was
recorded by the band in their own studio in early 2012 and consists
of eight tracks of dark, old school doom metal with a lyrical content
based loosely around the writings of H.P. Lovecraft and Robert E.
Howard - ancient wars fought against a backdrop of Giger-esque
surrealism is what you get! The album was originally self-released by
the band but the copy they sent to the I HATE post box bludgeoned
us so thoroughly that we had no other option but to oer them a
re-release deal. The I Hate version of Disciples of the Hex has a mix
far superior to the demo and the artwork and layout has been
enhanced and improved.
“As the Ancient Ones once again awaken, we are scholars to this
curse, disciples to this Hex.”
