Group for American Thrash metal band "Demolition Hammer" fans

The original line-up consisted of Steve Reynolds, James Reilly, and John Salerno. This line-up only recorded one demo together (Skull Fracturing Nightmare, 1988), as the band recruited tattoo artist Vincent Civitano (a.k.a. Vinny Daze, who designed the band's logo) to replace Salerno not long after. They also added second guitarist Derek Sykes to the lineup to add a fuller sound. After the release of another demo tape (Necrology), they were signed by Century Media records after Robert Kampf (from Century Media) was in America for the Foundations Forum, as he attended a rehearsal that also featured Prime Evil.

The band's first two albums, 1990's Tortured Existence and 1992's Epidemic of Violence, illustrate the band's guitar riff-laden, dual lead guitar, blast beat, full-fledged brutal thrash/death approach. The band recorded a final demo in 1993 before deciding to go their separate ways, with James Reilly and Vinny Daze forming Deviate NY. Reynolds and Sykes started a new band and recruited drummer Alex Marquez (who is best known for playing in the bands Malevolent Creation and Solstice) to recorded 1994's Time Bomb as a trio. Despite being recorded by a new band, Century Media refused to release the album unless it was under the Demolition Hammer moniker as the label believed they would shift more copies that way.

Time Bomb would prove to be the proverbial swan song for the band, as the record is absent of guitar solos, quick tempo and blast beats. Drummer Vinny Daze died from Globefish poison on March 11, 1996, and the band quickly faded into obscurity. All three albums have been out of print for quite some time.

    there is little death in demolition hammer, dark angel is much more death metal like than demolition hammer ever was and they are quite pure thrash aswell. but total awesome band anyway.
