Fisthammer Posts New Album "Devour All You See" Track-By-Track Breakdown

Vocalist Max Svalgard of Philadelphia's Fisthammer has teamed up with Metalholic to release a track-by-track breakdown of the band's "Devour All You See" album. An excerpt from the breakdown follows:

Razorwaves - ”Razorwaves” was written about “The Great Flood of 1889? in Johnstown PA. It was a dam failure which caused 20 million tons of water flood the town. In the beginning of the flood’s path it destroyed Cambria Iron Works in Woodvale, PA which unleashed waves filled with barbed wire on Johnstown.

Aten: Fear the Obliteration of Earth - ”Aten” is about the “ancient alien” concept of the Bhagavad Gita. If you read the Bhagavad Gita there are many instances where they are describing what sounds like a nuclear weapon attack, and so the theory is that the scripture is really a man writing his experience of aliens coming to earth and disintegrating a city. Although the song is mainly based off of the Bhagavad Gita there are almost identical stories all over the world, and the word Aten comes from Egyptian mythology which is the word for “The Sun Disk” god, Akhenaten when in rule made Aten the only god and if you look at the symbol for Aten it resembles a flying saucer.

Kull the Conqueror - This song is based on the movie Kull the Conqueror starring Kevin Sorbo. It is a movie about the battle between a man and his wife…..a demon queen. I was listening to a lot of black metal at the time and really wanted to write a fast melodic song and I was watching the movie with a guitar in my hands so I wrote the song while watching it.

Bullet Raped - ”Bullet Raped” was pitched to me by our former guitarist Eric, he told me the title and said GO! So “Bullet Raped” is about a man with a sniper rifle on top of a building patiently waiting for this woman he knows to walk home so that he can penetrate her orifices with bullets and then end her life.
