Thorr’s Hammer reunion confirmed for Tom Warrior’s “Only Death Is Real“ at next years Roadburn Festival:

Roadburn Press Release:

The recently reunited Thorr’s Hammer will be playing Tom Gabriel Warrior‘s Only Death Is Real at Roadburn 2010, set to be held on FridayApril 16th.

Having witnessed some downright incredible events in music this year, the recent Thorr’s Hammer reunion gigs at Birmingham’s own Supersonic Festival and London were among the absolute highlights. For the first time in 15 years, Thorr’s Hammer treated audiences to live renditions of their monolithic, gut-wrenching, black-doom, originally created in the mammoth stoned winter of 1994-1995.

Personally invited by Tom Gabriel Warrior, Thorr’s Hammer, comprised of Stephen O’Malley (Sunn 0))), Guitar), Greg Anderson (Sunn 0))), Guitar), Jamie Sykes (Drums), long time cohort Guy Pinhas (The Obsessed / Goatsnake, Bass) and original vocalist Runhild Gammelsæter, will be playing their first ever show on the European mainland at Tom’s Roadburn curated event, Only Death is Real.

Tom Gabriel Warrior comments: “I am excited and very happy as a fan and I feel proud and honored as a curator that Thorr’s Hammer have accepted my invitation and have agreed to play next year’s Roadburn festivalI greatly respect Stephen O’Malley both as a peer and a friendand I have long regarded Thorr’s Hammer as pioneers in their fieldHaving them at Roadburn is a true privilege.”

Runhild Gammelsæter comments: “I speak on behalf of all members of Thorr’s Hammer when I tell of the speechlessnessthe thrill going down my backupon the news that we have been invited by Tom Gabriel Warrior to play the Roadburn festivalNot in my wildest dreams as a teenage girl listening to Celtic Frost and playing doom in Seattle did I imagine that Thorr’s Hammer would be appreciated 15 years laterWe are awed of the recognition of our music and thrilled to have this opportunityIt is such a joy for us to play together againand we look forward to share that joy with the audienceWe are very thankful to our fansold and newand we are very excited to perform at Roadburn.”
