It is the year 2008 A.D., as the black/thrash metal force BitchHammer is born in the depths of Leipzig (Eastern Germany) – armed with an iron will, a metal heart and a morning star with stereotype spikes. The trio infernale is not coming to revolutionize the scene, but to refresh the basic trademarks of the devil’s music with a straight-forward old-school-infected metal sound from hell. The spirit of ancestors like Venom, Sodom, Hellhammer, Darkthrone and Desaster is the essence of their sound and the Infernal One lurks behind every corner. No wonder, for the band forges its unholy metal directly in the lungs of his temple: black, dirty and ass-kicking.
As of 2009, the beast is full-grown and begins to cry out its blasphemies – the first result is called “Doomblessed & Chaosborn” and reaching the world’s surface as a good old tape in early 2010. Lucifer’s legions of death were ready for attack and could not be tamed any longer. Various concerts followed, taking the band on stage for example at In Flammen Open Air Torgau, the benefit metal festival at Skullcrusher Dresden and Brutz & Brakel Stromgitarrenfest Berlin with bands and friends like Arroganz, Asphyx (NL), Division Speed, Fleshcrawl, Furnaze (GB), Ketzer, Penetration (US), Rezet, Under That Spell und Warhammer. In 2013 the first release on vinyl is out – a 4-Way-Split-LP with three other bands from Leipzig called “Thrashers of the Apocalypse”. And a lot more is yet to come… BitchHammer's malevolent journey on the left hand path of old school metal continues!
