Abscess hail from Oakland California and started life in 1994. 'Horrorhammer' is their debut album for Tyrant Syndicate Productions, the sub-label of Peaceville. For the few who won't know, Chris Reifert & Danny Coralles are both founder members of late 80's/early 90's gore metal kings, Autopsy, who were signed to Peaceville for 4 albums. Chris also started his career in the 80's with the classic metal band, Death. The Darkthrone guys had been long-time fans of both Abscess and Autopsy and thought that the band would suit the attitude and mentality of their Tyrant Syndicate label perfectly, so in early 2006 a deal was completed and work swiftly began on the new album and seventh full-length release, 'Horrorhammer'. 'Horrorhammer' was recorded in late June 2006 and features 12 tracks of filthy punk-fuelled death. It was recorded by long time cohort Adam Munoz at Prairie Sun Studios, where Possessed recorded the classic 'Seven Churches' album.
