ALEHAMMER United Kingdom



International crust is GO - Ale drinking crusty scumbags from the UK and USA sick of the lack of real crust after many years & beers of friendship decided that it had to be done and formed Alehammer, inspired by warhammer's raw tribute to hellhammer back in the 90s and the blistering attack of the old masters like discharge and the 80s/90s crust punk scene Alehammer was spewed from the very depths of ale, almost creating all the noise a day or even on the day of recording to keep the rawness, stop reading and just listen.


Back in 1999 scoot (then guitar player of hellkrusher and still in extinction of mankind) was in chicago visiting Karl (Impulse Manslaughter, one of the usa's first punk bands steering towards the crust grindcore vein back in the 80s before it was ever a trend) and joked about doing a band along the lines of warhammer/hellhammer and crust bands like deviated instinct called alehammer as we shared a commen interest in the fine beverage ALE (not fizzy lager), the friendship maintained and then in 2006, shrub and shrew (uk grindcore legends prophecy of doom) wantes to do a band with scoot to celebrate shrub's birthday spookily he wanted to call it alehammer and so karl without a shadow of a doubt was drafted in, the first recording was done in august 2006 and released as a 10" pic disc with alehammer beer mat, called "mine's a pint of crust" on agipunk records, in 2007 the band got together in october 2 days before the very first gig at the 1in12 bradford and also recorded 5 new trax for "at war with straightedge" soon to be released again by agipunk, a tour of europe is planned for 2008 to fit in with their appearance at this years awesome obscene extreme fest you have been warned!!! drunk and ugly.
