Editorial Reviews

Two CD set.2008, Re-Issue and Re-Mastered version of all previous demo tapes, including 'Death Fiend' and 'Satanic Rites') Hellhammer was an early-1980s black metal band from Switzerland who were popular in the underground scene in the mid-1980s. They were a vital influence on Black Metal, Death Metal and Doom Metal, although their sound is most accurately described as mid-paced, Black Metal. Members went on to form the influential band Celtic Frost. 14 tracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heavier than hell and cooler than you'll ever be February 21, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I'm not good at writing reviews, so I'll keep it short and down to the facts. This set contains all of Hellhammer's demos. 29 songs in all, re-mastered from original master copies by Tom Gabriel and Martin Eric Ain. They also dove into their personal archives to supply photo's and never before seen art work.

There are three versions of this, a triple LP edition, and a Deluxe 2 CD edition. Both feature a lavish booklet and a poster. There is also a bare-bones low priced version as well. I have the Deluxe 2 CD version, ordered directly from the manufacturer, it arrived on 2-19. It is full of rare never before seen pictures, reproductions of the original cassette tape covers, and a brief excerpt from the forthcoming book "Only Death is Real - The Illustrated History of Hellhammer and early Celtic Frost"

When Hallhammer released it's only official album "Apocalyptic Raids" the band had already been broken up, that album was regarded as one of the heaviest albums at the time. These songs show the progression of the band and how they would mature into Celtic Frost.

This is a good listen to hear the beginning of what would eventually become doom metal, thrash metal, black metal and death metal.

5.0 out of 5 stars TRIUMPH OF DEATH March 13, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Outstanding release containing legendary 1983 demos 'Satanic Rites' and 'Triumph of Death'

Disc 1 is the real treasure [Satanic Rites] By this point Hellhammer was about as good as they ever were gonna get. This is basically a full-length Hellhammer album containing such familiar classics as 'Third of the Storms' 'Messiah' 'Revelations of Doom' and an amazing rendition of "Triumph of Death"

'Triumph' is not the only Hellhammer epic however, as there are two other songs that clock over the 6-minute mark. 'Satanic Rites' and 'Buried and Forgotten' which is an early version of "Necromantical Screams"

If you thought Apocalyptic Raids was too short, then definitely check out this release!

+ADD THIS TO YOUR COLLECTION+

P.S It is also worth mentioning the infamous black metal band MAYHEM borrowed quite a few Hellhammer songs titles for use as their pseudonyms:

Members of Mayhem:

Euronymous-Guitar

Messiah-Vocals

Maniac-Vocals

Hellhammer-Drums

and on "Live in Leipzig" I'm pretty sure Dead tells the audience "Only Death is Real!"

4.0 out of 5 stars A Magnum Metal Opus March 23, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Oh wow man! When I heard about this collection of Hellhammer coming out I was really excited about it. I'll admit that I've not heard much of Hellhammer's music. I'm really only familiar with the ep "Apocyliptic Raids." I had heard some briefly when I was in high school with some stoner buddies of mine. I've actually read about them more than I had the chance to hear the band thru books and various magazines.
Everyone always had good things to say about Hellhammer. Countless bands have said that they had been heavily influenced by, to me, this elusive band. Mayhem, Emperor, and Burzum, aka: Count Grisnacht or Varg Vickernes if you want to get technical. Those bands that I just mentioned were coming up in the early and mid 90's. During that time, black metal was the new craze in the heavy metal underground. The funny thing about Hellhammer though is that they were playing in the style of black metal almost 10 years earlier. 1982, 83' to be exact. Black metal as a style on the metal family tree was just germinating at this time with Venom's second album titled "Black Metal" which was released in 1982. But Venom was more than a black metal band. They were thrash, speed, death and black metal. (Sorry I'm using the phrase: black metal too much but, what else can you call it?) Hellhammer on the other hand was pretty much the prototype "black metal" band. It really blows me away that there was music this fierce and heavy so early into the genre of heavy metal.
The first disc of this 2 cd set is called "Satanic Rights." An incredible recording from the embryonic period of Celtic Frost. For example: "Buried and Forgotten" turned into "Necromantical Screams" on Frost's album "To Mega Therion" from 1985. It's a little different in parts but it's definitly there.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for Celtic Frost fans February 27, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Despite their legendary status within the extreme metal world, Hellhammer music has always seemed hard to find. Already a Celtic Frost fan in 1986, I remember looking in vain for Apocalyptic Raids, a difficult quest before the era of Amazon.com and downloading. I finally found it, but it was frustrating to know that there was still a plethora of Hellhammer material that I never thought I would hear. Demon Entrails, a remastered collection of the band's demos, has made it worth the wait.

Disc 1 is their "Satanic Rites" demo and is outstanding. The music sounds like a raw and faster version of Celtic Frost and it is quite unique and breathtaking. Punk, black metal, death metal, doom metal, and proto-thrash are all apt descriptions and the record is filled with great riffs and abrupt tempo changes. Every single track is excellent but my favorites are "Messiah", "The Third Of The Storms", Euronymos", and "Crucifixion". Later versions of "Messiah", "The Third Of The Storms", "Triumph Of Death", and "Revelations Of Doom" appear on Apocalyptic Raids as well but the versions here are faster and more aggressive, the drumming in particular is brought out more loudly and clearly in the mix. It is too bad that Tom G. Warrior did not include a remastering of Apocalyptic Raids on this disc, that would have made the collection complete.

Disc 2 includes the earlier "Death Fiend" and "Triumph Of Death" demos and is not as good as disc 1 but still quite fascinating. Songs are short, often 2 or 3 minutes, and include primitive versions of "Maniac", "Triumph Of Death", "Reaper", and "Cruxifixion". Audio quality is relatively poor, the songs are not well constructed, and Tom G. Warrior had not yet developed his trademark vocal style.
