“Above The Ruins”, the new video from Tel-Aviv, Israel metallers HAMMERCULT, can be seen below. The song comes off the band’s debut album, “Anthems Of The Damned”, which was released on April 20 through Sonic Attack Records.
HAMMERCULT recently wrapped up a European tour during which they shared stages with SEPULTURA, HATEBREED and MALEVOLENT CREATION. Their next live show will be at the Wacken Open Air festival in Wacken, Germany in early August.
Since its formation in the politically-charged country of Israel in late 2010, HAMMERCULT has created a violent mixture of extreme thrash metal with a nasty punk approach, delivering crunching riffs, furious vocals, pounding drum skins and sickening lyrics. In a matter of months, HAMMERCULT managed to gather a loyal hardcore fan base through the band’s intense live show attitude — “no bullshit, just metal!”
After conquering the hearts of the Israeli metalheads, HAMMERCULT emerged victorious at the international Metal Battle competition at Wacken Open Air in summer 2011. But this was just the beginning — they also signed to the German label Sonic Attack Records, founded by Karl Walterbach, and embarked on a European tour with crossover legends D.R.I.
