Lump Hammer release ‘Beast’ on Cruel Nature Records

First time I heard Lump Hammer was on the very destructive split ‘Whelmed’ with Bodies on Everest wich was pretty damn great. So this trio is now back with music deep from the pits of Hell, eeeum, Tyneside (UK) I mean.

The first track ‘Alarm’ is a great introduction to Lump Hammer. It lets you know this music is pretty damn nuts. the track gives me this image of a fat viking yelling frustrated from the top of a mountain but then with sludge riffs in the background with now and then a fastpaced grindcore piece mixed through it.

If you expect that this track is the loudest or the weirdest then you are quite wrong. It seems Lump Hammer specializes in experimental sludge with a pinch of weirdness. The sounds on ‘Beast’ are destructive yet healing for mind and soul.

Out on Cruel Nature Records (Cassette too) and Inverted Grim-Mill Recordings.

Favourite tracks: ‘Where?’ and ‘Slide’

First track ‘Underachiever’ by Lump Hammer on Cruel Nature Records

First time I heard Lump Hammer was on the very destructive split ‘Whelmed’ with Bodies on Everest wich was pretty damn great. So this trio is now back with music deep from the pits of Hell, eeeum, Tyneside (UK) I mean.

The track is called ‘Underachiever’ and is sludgy noiserock with a kind of blacky metal vocals. For five minutes a dirty riff keeps slamming against your head and you need it, I know you need it.

The full album is called quite fitting ‘Beast’ and will be released soon on Cruel Nature Records.

‘Whelmed’: A split between Bodies On Everest & Lump Hammer

This split is something absolutely great, these two bands made a split of the most experimental noiserock, music at times agressive and bleak and sometimes highly psychedelic and trancelike.

The Liverpool band Bodies On Everest takes care of the first four tracks. These four tracks make up for about an hour worth of listening ‘pleasure’. Bodies on Everest are experts in songbuilding, slowly creating atmosphere and added layer by layer of excrutiating noise.

Then there is Lump Hammer from Newcastle Upon Tyne with five tracks of highly mad noiserock, experimetal, riffing and hellish screaming.

 

This is a split from hell and a very good one, excellently executed with the kind of noisy atmosphere that we need. Released October 18.
