Photos: Demolition Hammer pounded Saint Vitus (6/18)

Pics by Mathieu Bredeau



Following a soggy (but punishing) set at a rainy MDF 2016 last month, New York City’s own recently reactivated extreme metal veterans Demolition Hammer descended upon Brooklyn’s Saint Vitus last week for two completely sold-out events on June 17 and 18.

The shows marked the band’s first hometown gigs in pretty much forever, as they have been in hibernation for over 20 years ago. They guys played identical sets each night, spewing out grueling tracks from their classic albums on Century Media, Tortured Existence and Epidemic of Violence. Check out a shit-ton of shots from night 2 at Vitus below.

Next up for DH, the gang invades Italy for the first time in September, with Sodom, Dark Tranquillity (who play NYC in Nov.) and more. Hopefully they’ll announce more shows soon (stay tuned).
