SPV/Steamhammer Signs HAMMERCULT, New Album Due In August

Neo-Thrashers HAMMERCULT from Israel have signed a new record deal with German based label SPV/Steamhammer. The first release will be the new album “Built For War”.


Bandleader and singer Yakir Shochat says about the deal: “This October will mark 5 years from the day we stepped into the rehearsal room for the first time and HAMMERCULT were born. It’s been a hell of a ride – with 5 full European tours supporting legendary bands who we grew up listening to (Sepultura, DRI, Napalm Death etc…), around 150 live shows in over 20 countries, countless festivals, 2 killer extreme metal albums – and the best is still yet to come! We are proud to join the SPV/Steamhammer family, one of the biggest international metal labels, with it’s own glory history. I’m positive that with SPV/Steamhammer behind us, new goals will be achieved and HAMMERCULT‘s extreme metal will spread stronger than ever!”


Steamhammer A&R Representative Olly Hahn ads: HAMMERCULT is one of these bands who are willing to have success. They are more than 100% into the metal genre and can`t wait to play another show or festival. The new album will be a surprise and I´m sure that we both have a great future in front of us!


The new album was mixed and mastered by Tue Madsen (Moonspell, The Haunted, Dark Tranquility) and is currently scheduled for a worldwide (ex Japan) release on August 28th as a digipak version, LP version and digital download.


Stay tuned for more info regarding artwork, track listing and tour dates!
