Hammers of Misfortune Metal Blade Reissues


Since their first release The Bastard in 2001, Hammers of Misfortune have amassed a mountain of praise by both fans and journalists. Those who took the advice of numerous publications and sought out any of the four releases would not have been disappointed. Word of mouth and the publications smart enough to cover these releases were the only place to get these recordings because originally they were issued through small labels such as Cruz Del Sur, Tumult and Profound Lore. Now, the group has signed a worldwide deal with Metal Blade and is working on a new album. Before that new album drops, though, MB has reissued the Hammers’ back catalog.
