Metal Blade Records has announced the signing of the groundbreaking San Francisco progressive metal outfit HAMMERS OF MISFORTUNE. Now Metal Blade is reissuing four of the band's previous releases, with a new studio album expected in 2011.
Formed in the late '90s by eclectic, versatile guitarist John Cobbett (GWAR, LUDICRA, SLOUGH FEG, AMBER ASYLUM, JARBOE), HAMMERS OF MISFORTUNE started as an exercise in songwriting and making coherent full-length albums. The band is made up of some of the most talented musicians John Cobbett and co. can find. Cobbett explains, "I set out to do it this way from the beginning. Having been in a dozen or so bands that broke up before realizing their potential, I decided that the songs and albums were the most important thing. So I formed a 'break-up-proof' project that depends more on good material and strong albums than a consistent lineup."


“Notoriety and record sales be damned, I don't think there's a better band out there right now than HAMMERS OF MISFORTUNE. "The Locust Years" is the kind of record that will be talked about fifty years from now…this is a metal opera that fucking rocks unashamedly, dexterous virtuoso metal that never forgets hooks and heart.” – BLABBERMOUTH.NET
