Review:
I wanted to start this review with a rant about how superficial this "true metal revival" became in such short time and how many posers "support" this type of bands online but "forget" to support them when it comes to buying their stuff and actually supporting them, but I guess saying what I just said should be enough, noone cares anyway.
Terrorhammer's debut album comes out 5 years after the foundation of the band, 5 years with plenty of drama and tension that left the band in its current form, a duo with Pentagramator on vocals and guitars and B.B.K. Necro Doctor on bass. For this debut album they invited Butcher (aka. Honza Kapak from Avenger and Panychida, one of my fave Czech musicians) to track the drums and the end result I'm sure delighted both members of the band as drums play a major (if not the biggest) role on this album. Under the Unholy Command features 8 tracks + intro and clocks 35 minutes of fast to insanely fast paced old-school evil metal, a mix of Speed, Heavy, Thrash, Black and even incipient Death Metal, fast music with plenty of blasphemy and disgust in their lyrics, highlighted by a raw sounding evil vocalist, thrashing guitar riffs, heavy pounding bass lines and almost relentless drums, all supported by an organic yet crystal clear production. For this genre I really have no bad comments on this album, I'm sure real fans of it will find Under the Unholy Command an extremely tasty material and won't regret their spent money, speaking for my taste I wanted to hear something to remember the band on after the audition, but I'm afraid I won't remember any track after. Released on CD, Vynil and digital versions by Deathrune, and what I have here is the CD version that features a nice 12 pages booklet with all lyrics.

Terrorhammer/Under The Unholy Command / Deathrune Records / 2015 CD Review 8 out of 10

Terrorhammer are band from Serbia that plays a mixture of black, thrash and speed metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Under The Unholy Command" which was released by Deathrune Records.

Avant garde sounds start off the album along with some loud noises and after the intro the music goes for more of a thrash direction and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and a few seconds later grim black metal screams make their presence known on the recording and the riffs also get melodic at times.

Most of the music is very heavily rooted in the 80's first wave style while t he vocals have more of an early second wave vibe and you can also hear elements of speed metal in the bands musical style and the solos and leads remain true to a classic style of metal bringing in a Motorhead influence and the whole album stays very heavy from beginning to ending of the recording and sounds like it could of easily been released during the mid 90's retro thrash days.

Terrorhammer plays a style of black metal that is influenced by both t he first and second waves and mixes it in with thrash, speed metal and punk to create some aggressive, extreme old school metal, the production sounds very retro yet heavy at the same time, while the lyrics cover Occultism and War themes.

In my opinion Terrorhammer are a very great sounding mixture of black, thrash and speed metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Necro Speed Megolomania" "Dawn Of The Pentagram" and "Church Of Sodomy". 8 out of 10.

Terrorhammer – Under The Unholy Command
Released: October 20th 2015
Label: Deathrune Records
From: Serbia
Style: Necro Speed Metal
​Enjoy Venom from the Black Metal/Welcome To Hell era? Who doesn’t right? Well then put a big fat smile on your face because that is exactly what Terrorhammer bring your way. Personally those are my two favorite Venom albums so Terrorhammer slipped right into a soft spot in my heart that hasn’t been nourished in a very long time. Damn those Venom albums came out a long time ago! [Insert “old” jokes here… and then go fuck yourself] Just like Black Blood was our first review for Inverse Records, this is our first review for Deathrune Records who reached out to say hello just before the holidays hit. So support small Indie labels and click that “buy” button up there. This is a damn fine album and the best album that Venom has put out in close to 30-ish years though I did quite enjoy Hell from about ’09 or something. If like me you need some good old school almost thrash metal ala early Venom once in a while then you’ll love Terrorhammer. That’s a huge compliment as many try and just fail to recapture that sound but Terrorhammer do it perfectly while still sounding new and fresh.

Terrörhammer - Under Unholy Command - (8/10)
Serbia’s answer to the blackened thrashing speed metal mayhem that has been flooding the metal scene in recent years, Terrörhammer unleashed their debut full length album, Under the Unholy Command, through Deathrune Records in October 2015. Formed in 2010 by WarBeast Holocausto, also known as Atterigner, the current Gorgoroth vocalist, and former Kawir vocalist and guitarist Pentagramator the Helltyrant, the band went through some inner turmoil in 2013 which saw WarBeast leave to focus on Gorgoroth amd Pentagramator soldier on without his consent.
Despite the personnel problems, Terrörhammer’s debut album is a sinister slab of blackened metal that should please fans of the new wave of first wave emulators. Fast paced and vicious, with a constant barrage of blackened, thrashing power chord progression and snarling, acerbic growls that serve as vocals. The rollicking, speed metal influenced rhythms come courtesy of Honza Kapák, the owner of Hellsound Studios, which is where the album was recorded. Speaking of speed metal influence, Terrörhammer brings whiskey drenched solos and lead guitar licks, adding more than a dose of Motör-rocking to the blackened thrash metal assault.
While Terrörhammer did have a handful of short releases under their belt, Under the Unholy Command shows that these guys have the chops to compete in the increasingly crowded black/thrash/metalpunk scene. Equal parts Venom, Motörhead, Hellhammer and Darkthrone, Terrörhammer’s sound waxes and wanes through thirty-five minutes of sleazy filth. Fans of Manzer, Whipstriker and Midnight will definitely need to check these guys out, as they carry the torch of blackened heavy fucking metal to the Serbian scene.

TERRORHAMMER - UNDER THE UNHOLY COMMAND
DEATHRUNE RECORDS
666 FUCKING SKULLS
Opening with the Italian horror movie-inspired sound effect laden “Catacomb of Pandemonium”, Serbian Black/Thrash Metal masters TERRORHAMMER fucking EXPLODE into the Speed Metal assault that is “Necro Speed Megalomania” and you know you are in for a brutal beat down on this one. Ripping their way through old-school Death/thrash Metal inspired tracks like “Blood for the Countess”, “Graveyard Witch” and “Church of Sodomy” like a pack of rabid dogs, TERRORHAMMER knows only one speed – FULL SPEED! This whole album is so fucking catchy that you will need a crowbar to get it out of your CD player, and fans of old SODOM, DESTRUCTION and BATHORY will want to buy extra copies so they will always have one on hand. Hails to Deathrune Records for putting out this Necro Speeed Metal Assault! (DH)
