Editorial Reviews

About the Artist

Hammerbox was one of the few Seattle grunge bands fronted by a woman in the early '90s. Led by fiery vocalist Carrie Akre, Hammerbox equaled the untrammeled rage of their Emerald City peers but also inserted new wave energy in their typical Seattle blend of heavy metal and punk. Akre's voice combined Pat Benatar's shatterproof toughness with Kristen Hersh's ominous roar. Also featuring guitarist Harris Thurmond, bassist James Atkin, and drummer Dave Bosch, Hammerbox recorded its self-titled debut LP for indie label C/Z Records in 1991.

Product Description

After 10 years apart Hammerbox reunited on May 14th for an epoch evening of rock n’ roll at it’s finest. The sold out crowd at the Experience Music Projects Skychurch was treated to an onslaught of musical energy and talent. Rock these days tends to all sound the same, however Hammerbox has breathed new life into rock music by returning an energy and sound that has been lost.

5.0 out of 5 stars Goose bumps December 15, 2006
Format:Audio CD
a decade later and the many shows burned into my memory... what a treat. Yah, to the uninitiated their studio albumns are probably more palatable. But if you used to follow them around the okay, and that bar on eastlake that has changed names so many times I can't remember its name, THEY STILL HAVE THE MAGIC!

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this disk! June 28, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I can't remember when, or where, I came upon Hammerbox. But like most of the poeple who reviewed the album Numb, it really changed a lot of things for me. For one, I gave up all musical aspirations. Why, you might ask? Because, after I heard such a raucous album, which was unknown to the world (how many times have I heard "You mean Candlebox?") I said if this great a disk can't make a ripple, what chance have I?

I lived on Numb, and have bought it time and time again as it slipped through my hands. It is really an incredible disk, so you can imagine how thrilled I was to see (when I came onto Amazon to purchase Numb AGAIN) a live album by Hammberbox.

Disappointment does not even begin to cover it. First off, the production values are absolutely dung. All the songs are, to my ears, at a slower tempo which looses most of the impact of the originals on Numb. Also, believe it or not, I swear the bass is even out of tune on some of the songs. The crowd is subdued (to say the least) and the guitar work sounds like....well, it hadn't been played in those 10 years they were apart.

Suffice to say that after listening to this live disk (and this hurts me to say) I maybe now have a better idea of why they never made it big.

In addition to this turd I bought their first disk. It is no where near the sonic masterpiece that Numb is, but MIGHT be worth the cash. This definitely is not. If I were you I would buy Numb (now only available used) burn it, hand it out to friends, but don't waste your cash on this poor reflection of a great band. Oh, what might have been.
