2021 CD repress with an identical layout to the original pressing. Comes with an 8-page booklet featuring lyrics.
Forget trendy "party thrash" - DEATHHAMMER are here to annihilate posers with their highly anticipated second album, "Onward to the Pits." A cult name in the underground, the Norwegian duo of DEATHHAMMER skillfully honor the ancient masters with a blackened thrash attack replete divebombing leads and piercing screams and wails from the abyss. With dark and dynamic songwriting that memorably moves between blitzing surge and locomotive pulse, DEATHHAMMER will take you "Onward to the Pits"!
Recommended for diehards of early SODOM, early KREATOR, VULCANO, and SABBAT (Japan)
This is an amazing thrash album. I don't think I've enjoyed a thrash album this much since 1990. It's got a very savage and primal vibe and production to it almost like a hybrid of the early-mid eighties South American sound with a splash of the first wave of black. They had a great live show too. The vocalist has one of the best screams ever.
