Hellhammer, the early pre-cursor to Celtic Frost in the word of black and death metal only lasted a few years before fizzling out. Now 35 plus years after forming, Thomas Gabriel Fischer has formed the band Triumph of Death, named for the best Hellhammer song, to perform those seminal tracks. They will play their first show at on June 21, 2019 in Clisson, France.
Tom Gabriel Warrior comments:
“Hellhammer will never return and will never be reformed. It is absolutely impossible to reform a band so closely linked to a very specific and unique period in time. I never considered it, no matter how substantial the offers that were pitched to me over the years. But HELLHAMMER’s music exists, and it is an extremely important part of my life’s path. And I would like to play it onstage before my demise.”
