Tom Warrior Remembers HELLHAMMER 30 Years Later


Hellhammer TRIPTYKON leader and CELTIC FROST frontman Tom Gabriel Warrior has issued the following update:

"30 years ago this month, in May 1982, Steve Warrior and I formed HELLHAMMER in Nürensdorf, Switzerland. We both had felt utterly frustrated by the reluctance of the members of my previous band, GRAVE HILL, to conceive and play more radical metal. So we formed our own, new band, designed from the outset to be more extreme. It was absolutely impossible, of course, to know at the time just how much this very act would affect our lives.

And four years ago this month, in May 2008, bassist Vanja Slajh and I formed Triptykon in Zurich, Switzerland, barely a month after my departure from Celtic Frost. There are many parallels, some obvious, some far less so.
