I confess I had not heard of Hammers... until reading about them in connection with leader John Cobbett's (sadly defunct) Ludicra. Was impressed by the bits that I heard, so bought this album. It's great! A wonderful mix of 70s progressive rock, 80s NWOBHM. Great riffs, actual singing, and great songs! I'd say a mighty mix of Thin Lizzy, UFO, Deep Purple, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, etc. Basically this is one to present your friends who say 'there isn't anything new out that holds up to what I listen to.' You hand them a copy of this and say 'yes, there is!'

2011's 17th Street is the fifth album from San Francisco-based progressive metal band Hammers of Misfortune, which was founded by former Slough Feg vocalist/guitarist John Cobbett. I actually hadn't heard any Hammers of Misfortune (Slough Feg either, come to think of it) before, but a friend of mine is a fan so I took a chance on this album when I saw it in a used CD store. I'm glad I did.

This is some very interesting music. I've been burned out by the seemingly endless stream of "progressive metal" bands that simply mimic Dream Theater's sound, so it's great to see a band like Hammers of Misfortune that takes the progressive tag seriously and does something. Their sound - at least on 17th Street - is a unique blend of heavy rock and metal (think Black Sabbath, Uriah Heep and Atomic Rooster) and progressive rock (Queen, Rush and even Marillion). The closest modern comparisons are probably Black Bonzo, Bigelf and Presto Ballet. There is a great overall heaviness, some moving melodies and really fantastic vocal harmonies. The progressive elements come largely from the songwriting, so you're not going to hear a lot of technical noodling just for technicality's sake. The whole album seems like some grand experience, and it gives you something new each time you spin it.

I really wish I hadn't waited so long to check this band out, and I totally recommend them to anyone looking for something unique in the world of progressive rock and metal. 17th Street definitely won't be the last Hammers of Misfortune disc I buy. I suppose I should also pick up some Slough Feg and see what I'm missing there.

First listen equals hope.

Don't think this album will rise to the level of The August Engine or The Locust Years (not many albums could), but my first impression is that I'll be listening to this album way more than the Fields/Church of Broken Glass double album.

I'll check back in a bit for a more in-depth look, after a few more listens.
