Japanese All-Girl Band Gallhammer Sign With Peaceville Records
Peaceville Records has announced the signing of GALLHAMMER. Hailing from Tokyo, Japan, this three-girl combo is anything but what you’ve come to expect from the polite and serene land of the rising sun (or daughter in this case).
Peaceville are currently compiling GALLHAMMER's first major European release which will be a retrospective look over their material from previous underground releases, coupled with a DVD of an awesome performance in Tokyo "which has to be seen to be believed," according to a press release. "We apologize in advance for any fright caused when watching this crustcore combo in action. It would be lost in translation to try to explain, but they achieve some kind of trance-like state fed on horrendously loud feedback which Jonas Renkse of KATATONIA described as 'scary'."
GALLHAMMER will enter an as yet undetermined Tokyo studio in the spring to record the first full album for Peaceville and a host of producers are being vetted for the mix.
Musically inspired by long forgotten U.K. crust bands AXEGRINDER and AMEBIX, but with a heavy dose of modern slime a la AUTOPSY and DARKTHRONE and a nod to CELTIC FROST/HELLHAMMER, this outfit are a breath of stale air in a fresh market.
Mika Penetrator - Vocals/Guitar
Risa Reaper - Drums/Vocals
Vivian Slaughter - Vocals/Bass
