Hammercult Bio:

Since its formation in the politically-charged country of Israel in late 2010, HAMMERCULT has created a violent mixture of extreme thrash metal with a nasty punk approach, delivering crunching riffs, furious vocals, pounding drum skins and sickening lyrics. In a matter of months, HAMMERCULT has managed to gather a loyal hardcore fan base through the band's intense live show attitude – NO BULLSHIT, JUST METAL!

After conquering the hearts of the Israeli metalheads, HAMMERCULT emerged victorious at the international Metal Battle competition at Wacken Open Air in summer 2011. But this was just the beginning – signing to the German label Sonic Attack Records, founded by Karl Walterbach, and embarking on a European tour with crossover legends D.R.I. wrapped up an amazing and eventful year for the unstoppable thrashers.

April 2012 saw HAMMERCULT presenting their debut full-length effort "Anthems of the Damned" that showcases the group's non-compromising style of aggressive extreme metal. The album release was followed by a European tour during which the band has shared stages with heavy metal giants such as Sepultura, Hatebreed and Malevolent Creation. Upon the completion of the tour, as well as another solid performance at Wacken Open Air, HAMMERCULT has begun the songwriting process for the next full-length release.

Following another European tour with Sepultura and just before their first visit to Summer Breeze Open air, HAMMERCULT will enter the studio in summer 2013 to record their second full-length album.
