TUSKALIVE: TRIUMPH OF DEATH - A TRIBUTE TO HELLHAMMER AT TAVASTIA ON APRIL 10th
Hellhammer existed for a mere two years, from May 1982 to May 1984. During this time, the band wrote material for three demos, one 12" EP, and the legendary Death Metal compilation album, along with a number of unrecorded songs.
The resurrection of the music of Hellhammer has been an idea of founder Tom Gabriel Warrior and Martin Eric Ain have discussed for many years, sparked not least by their renewed collaboration in the reformed Celtic Frost in the 2000s and by the years of work on Warrior's second book Only Death Is Real (2009), which details the history of Hellhammer and early Celtic Frost.
Triumph Of Death will commence playing Hellhammer's music onstage in 2019. Triumph Of Death will not record any new music but is solely dedicated to performing both well-know and obscure Hellhammer songs. The project is based in Zurich, Switzerland.
