about

Hammerdrone Calgary, Alberta

Hammerdrone hail from Calgary, Canada. For 8 years we have been honing our trademark sound that mixes intense aggression, dark atmosphere and elegant melodies to deliver a style of death metal that is both epic and catchy. No clean singing, no symphonics.
Our style has drawn comparisons to Amon Amarth, early Soilwork, Behemoth and Bolt Thrower, among others.

Track Name: A Demon Rising
"A Demon Rising"

In the eye of my mind I see myself
Of demon ken, scarred and fallen:
Raping trust and taking all I yearn for
An unleashed force
Like the Hammer of Thor.

Engorged in lust
Swollen in pride
Now see this demon rise.

Unrestrained, unashamed
A whore to my humanity,
Uncontrolled, I lose my soul
And feast upon profanity.

In the eye of my mind I see myself
Skin burning black, charred and cracked:
Leaking flames of iron ferocity
And overcome
By my atrocity.

Engorged in lust
Swollen in pride
Now see this demon rise.
Track Name: Last Stand On Gibraltar
"Last Stand on Gibraltar"

In Gorham’s Cave, out of the cold, we huddle round
The Fire of Nerfil we have burned for generations,
Weary and worn down, the coughing claims the Ancient One.
Fear dances in the flames for we are abandoned:
Our Gods have fled; the winter is without end
And the Southern Devils hunt us down…

On the brink, last in line
Pushed into the corner,
Out of hope, out of time
Facing extinction…
Last stand on Gibraltar!
Last stand on Gibraltar!

The seasons stand encased in ice, a frost wind blows
Across the marsh it bears the sounds of chanting,
They come for us; black faces mad against the snow.
Rage courses in our veins for we are too few:
They come for blood and blood is what we’ll give them
And with violence curse the Whore of Fate…

On the brink, last in line
Pushed into the corner,
Out of hope, out of time
Facing extinction…
Last stand on Gibraltar!
Last stand on Gibraltar!

With club and spear we smash into their scrawny forms
One last dance with The Bear God in our hearts
Crushing bone, tearing flesh, roaring out defiance!
Hate shines in our eyes for this is our end-time:
Despair and anguish; the Devils kill the children
And beneath the insect swarm we fall…

On the brink, last in line
Pushed into the corner,
Out of hope, out of time
Facing extinction…
Last stand on Gibraltar!
Last stand on Gibraltar!
Track Name: Another Winter
"Another Winter"

Just another winter, death hangs in the air
Falling from the trees surrounding me
Like the ghost of memory
Saddens me.

Just another winter, death stalks my shadow
Sliding past my guard, clutching at my heart
Squeezing out the tears of grief
Breaking me.

Just another winter, death fills deep my lungs
Settles on my shoulders like the gentle snow
All around, within, without
Becoming me.
Track Name: Annihilation In Equilibrium
"Annihilation In Equilibrium"

Observe! It all flows down to nothing
Pooling at the lowest point.
Observe! The metal cools, tides subside
Heat and motion standing still.

Annihilation in equilibrium
It all falls down,
Entropic force triumphant
When nothing is crowned.

Light and sound decay to heat and flatten like mercury
Pressure and form cease to be, without the rule of gravity.

Observe! Our naïve and frantic game
Scrambling to develop threats
Observe! Our faces turned away
But the end is waiting, all the same.

Annihilation in equilibrium
All is worn down,
The universe is perfect
When nothing is crowned.
