The Hammer of Redemption, also known as T.H.O.R. A Metal band based in Johannesburg, South Africa. A name recognized in the South African metal scene since its inception in early 2007.
After times of much celebrated, appreciated and hard earned success and times of seemingly relentless trials and tribulation, T.H.O.R. remains unbroken! Since the inception and birth of T.H.O.R in February 2007, it has seen many different faces and has undergone much change but the method and message beneath the madness has ever remained the same, an influence from something more than what meets the eye that has always been and remains the backbone of T.H.O.R.
A T.H.O.R. show promises to be a spectacle of orchestrated madness and pure unrefined passion. A performance of epic proportions that leaves the viewer in the audience in the midst of a sudden rabid out break of energy and the ensuing insanity that strikes the audience as a result!
The Hammer of Redemption lyrically challenges a system of understanding within their own beliefs along with motivating people into true freedom from Drugs and any form of abuse. While T.H.O.R. is well known for it prolific Christian influence and beliefs, the purpose of the T.H.O.R. and its message is to promote and spread a spirit and belief once again in positivity, love, acceptance and respect for one another, qualities very rarely found in today’s life.
