Hammerhead To Release Special “Brofest Exclusive” 7″ single in February 2016

HAMMERHEAD originally formed in the late ’70s and played throughout the ’80s, becoming known as part of the NWOBHM scene, after releasing the single “Time Will Tell c/w Lonely Man” in 1981, which reached No 5 in the British Heavy Metal charts. After around 15 years apart the band reformed in 2005, and have been playing regularly ever since. The band’s afterlife has proved to be more fruitful than first time around, having released three albums: “Will To Survive” (which received 8/10 in Classic Rock magazine), “Headonizm” (both released in 2005), and most recently “The Sin Eater”.


“The Sin Eater”, HAMMERHEAD’s newest effort which includes 7 tracks, has been recorded at Linden Studios in 2014, and released on CD and limited edition LP in the summer of 2015, on High Roller Records.


Due to popular demand, HAMMERHEAD are making a return appearance at BROFEST 2016 in Newcastle, and will also be opening up HARD ROCK HELL’S PROG 4 in North Wales in March, along with some of the top names from the world of Prog Rock, including FOCUS, IAN ANDERSON (JETHRO TULL), VON HERTZEN BROTHERS or CARAVAN.


In other news, on February 19, 2016, HAMMERHEAD will release special “BROFEST EXCLUSIVE” 7″ single with two tracks: “Angel’s Fall” and “Time Will Tell”, which were recorded live at the BROFEST in 2015.




About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
