Intense Hammer Rage

W/Morbid Anal, Ornithologist, The Seaford Monster

grindcore

Intense Hammer Rage, Formed in 1994, Intense Hammer Rage originally consisted of 4 members, AB, Chris, Ricey and Spills but would later continue on as a 3 piece without spills on vocals. The vocals are shared amongst each other nowadays which brings a very unique feel to their extreme form of grind. They have 5 releases which you can read about in Band Interests. The later of the 5, Avagoyamugs was released in 2000 and caused a little controversy when customs raided the homes of members and seized several hundred copies of the cd and cds from their person collections. After an annoying and unnecessary court case they were fined. The boys are still continuing on and plan to release a new album in the near future. Expect updates and interviews in the coming months.

Today, to the great dismay of polite society, the Brats refuse to slow down or sober up.
