about

"Hammerdrone’s “Clone of Europa” brings to mind bands like Behemoth, Rotting Christ and even Amon Amarth at times yet the group’s sound is definitely its own; the album blends melody and brutality perfectly... If you are a death metal fan you owe it to yourself to check out Hammerdrone." 90/100 - www.extrememetal.tv

"Hammerdrone offers a no bullshit, no synths, no clean vox, in your face fifty minutes of the most exciting music 2014 has delivered so far to my ears." - www.tzeeeac.com

"...some serious soundscaping and atmosphere building abilities on the band's part. If you're into death metal or melodic death metal at all, I can't recommend Clone of Europa enough." - www.needsmorenoisegate.blogspot.ca

Track Name: Prometheus Is Murdered
For hundreds of your generations
I have stood the test of time
No storm or beast has bothered me.
Growing in both grace and wisdom
I am the stolid child of Earth
Older than Methuselah.

I am Prometheus – I am the ancient one.

Your kind was grubbing in the dirt
When first the Sunlight kissed my trunk
Secure in my mountain fastness.
I was my Mother’s favoured son
I meditated on the stars
Older than your Christ or Buddha.

I am Prometheus – I am the martyred one.
I am Prometheus, and you have killed me.

Murder! The whole world shivers…
Murder! As down bites the axe…
Horror! What have you done?
Murder! What have you done?

I am Prometheus – I am the martyred one.
I am Prometheus, and you have killed me.
Track Name: Subtle Knives
I will not tolerate
Your subtle knives anymore.

Consumed in the fires of my frustration
My anger’s building like a volcanic wave
Pour on the anger and light the nerve-fuse
And set off this conflagration.

I will not tolerate
Your subtle knives anymore.

The rational voice has been stoned into silence
By the livid mob of seething outrage
They’ve beaten me senseless and given me power
And set off this chain reaction.

I am the roaring flow of lava
I’ll melt you where you stand
Sweep you from my path
I’ll bury you in the past.

I am the roaring flow of lava
I’ll melt you where you stand
Sweep you from my path
I’ll bury you in the past.

I’ll bury you in my past
Bury you in my past!

I will not tolerate
Your subtle knives anymore.
Track Name: Clone Of Europa
Deep, so deep - many fathoms deep
Below
This crust of earth
A frozen cancer moves
From slumber awakened
Reaching for the surface
In an octopus stretch.

Calm, so still – the surface sleeps
Ignorance
Is truly bliss.
The ice shards split
Into the ocean penetrate
A lithium reaction
In cataclysmic motion.

Cold!

The sea is boiling, my flesh is freezing
This foaming ice…
The sea is boiling, my flesh is freezing
Europa’s twin is born.
Try as I might
I cannot escape.

Cold!

The sea is boiling, my flesh is freezing
This foaming ice…
The sea is boiling, my flesh is freezing
Europa’s twin is born.

Encased in ice
Alone in the void
Our world now slowly spins
Circling the Sun
Encased in ice
But devoid of warmth and life
Devoid
Of warmth of life!
Track Name: Triumph
I’ve been weak for far too long
Weakened by self-doubt
But kept apiece by anger.
But kept apiece by anger.

I’ve lost all sense of self-resolve
And wallowed in my apathy,
Assailed from every side
By the demons that I’ve made.

I’ve been weak for far too long
Weakened by self-doubt
But kept apiece by anger.
But kept apiece by anger.

Lonely
And without hope
For myself
I have vainly groped,
Lost
And drifting helpless
Totally
Fucking defenceless!

I’ve been gone for far too long
Subsumed within my twin
So now I light the flames…
So now I light the flames!

I’ve recovered strength and pride
I’ll no longer live in lethargy,
Building up from deep inside
Banishing what once enslaved.

Resolved, and with defiance
For my will is now a giant!
Resolved, and with defiance
For my will is now a giant!

Smash my chains to pieces
Smash my chains to pieces
Smash my chains to pieces
Smash my chains to pieces
Smash my chains to pieces
I’ll never regret this.
Track Name: Jevons Paradox
Proliferation is the bastard spawn of progress:
As invention wars with entropy it strikes a fatal blow.

Obsolescence is its brother in this war dance.
Together they kill technology
And usher in decay…

Stuck in Jevon’s Paradox
Swimming in the quicksand,
Stuck in Jevon’s Paradox
Where the future is the past.

The cadence of consumption creates cacophony!
And in this mass migration it masks our misery.

Deaf to all we hear, blind to reality
Finity is the cage we cannot break
The law
We can’t escape.

Efficiency is the lusting praying mantis
In the moment of success it tastes oblivion.

Progress is the lie of our presumption
And in its arrogance
It blinds us to
Eventuality.

Stuck in Jevon’s Paradox
Drowning in the quicksand,
Stuck in Jevon’s Paradox
Accelerating fast!
Stuck in Jevon’s Paradox
Drowning in the quicksand,
Stuck in Jevon’s Paradox
Where the future is the past.
Track Name: Death In The Yukon
Go!

One hundred times one thousand
Years have blurred beneath their stride
Over earth and pine and snow,
The pack, unchallenged in their pride…

Howling at the moon unveiled
Eyes gleaming in its light
The Alpha moves to the front,

Muscular and healthy
The wolf is in his prime
Exultation in the hunt.

On the trail keen senses are alert
Ahead, prey moving through the spruce
Ground-eating pace across this harshest land
Wears it down across the miles…

Struggling, the snow is deep
The air is icy cold
Exhaustion makes the bull moose weak,

Closing in, the grey wolves near
The pack is feeling bold
As now they smell the scent of fear:
They move in for the kill…

A dash of speed
The flash of teeth,
A gout of blood
Now time to feast.

Death in the Yukon! * 4

One hundred times one thousand
Years have blurred beneath their stride
Over earth and pine and snow,
The pack, unchallenged in their pride!

Death in the Yukon! * 4
Track Name: Wraiths On The Horizon
I stand at the edge of the gloaming trees
Rank upon rank upon file of watching
Silent sentinels observing as
I stand in panicked contemplation.

Darkness clouds my peripheral vision
And in my wake the forest petrifies.

But before my feet the delta stretches
With endless potential beckoning…

Yet my feet are bound by fear
And the choice restricts my breathing.
Yet my feet are bound by fear
And the choice restricts my breathing.
Restricts my breathing!

Mist and wraiths obscure the horizon
Here the Sun is weak and distant
And without illumination
I have lost my way…
I have lost my way!

And without illumination
I have lost my way.

And without illumination
I have lost my way.

And without illumination
I have lost my way.
Track Name: Kelpie
“Hold fast there, pilgrim-traveller! Hold fast your haste.
‘The hour is come but not the man’, spake the Kelpie of your fate!”

“Your faerie tale is heresy”, dismissed the man of faith
“I will ford the Conan here, though her banks be bowed in spate.”

Death is the black horse that rides you – to your grave!
Death is the black horse that devours you – underneath the waves!

Down by the river’s bank, there stood the beast
Waiting, as dark as pitch and sleekit in majesty.

“A gift from God!” the weary pilgrim cried, and he mounted the steed
But hands stuck fast, fright filled his soul; too late, he realised his mistake…

Death is the black horse that rides you – to your grave!
Death is the black horse that devours you – underneath the waves!

Once only did the pilgrim shriek, as the Kelpie reared and turned
And with a noise like thunder, into the deepest churn it plunged…

Death is the black horse that rides you – to your grave!
Death is the black horse that devours you – underneath the waves!

And whence the sunrise came the crofter ventured to the Conan
And found the pilgrim’s heart steaming bloody in the morning.
Track Name: Stormchaser
Stormchaser!

Feel the force, the fury of Nature
In the sky, it rends the clouds
Feel the force of the gathering power
Feel the force, and your blood quickens.
Feel the force, the Prairie is hidden
Beneath the darkness of the storm
Feel the force as it smothers the Sun
Feel the force as the gods unleash their hail…

Stormchaser!
Into the violence you have gone…
Stormchaser!
You are the fool that tempts the gods!

On the edge, your nerves are afire
As you drive into the swirl
On the edge your instruments keening
On the edge, the adrenaline surge
On the edge, the flashes of lighting
The banshee wind is filling your mind
On the edge as it changes direction
On the edge as the twister screams for you…

Bombardment begins
Destruction descends
To punish your temerity
The sky will swallow you whole.

Pitiful animal
Pitiless sky
No god of mercy comes for you!
Pitiful animal
Pitiless sky
No god of mercy comes for you
And so you die….

No god of mercy comes
No god of mercy comes
No god of mercy comes for you
