Arriving this week are two highly anticipated heavy metal releases from Metal Blade Records. First up is the return of the west coast progressive metal band Hammers Of Misfortune with their first album in five years titled "Dead Revolution." The new seven-song release begins with "The Velvet Inquisition" as frontman Joe Hutton is in fine form, following his severe motorcycle accident. Songwriter/guitarist John Cobbett has used this time off to create some incredible pieces of music, as in the title song "Dead Revolution" and "The Precipice (Waiting For The Crash)." The new remarkable album finishes with the intense build up of "Here Comes The Sky" and the storied tale of the "Days Of '49." to find out more about Hammers Of Misfortune and their latest album "Dead Revolution," please visit their Facebook page at facebook.com/hammersofmisfortune.
