With a newly-rejuvenated line-up and their signature sound intact, San Francisco’s HAMMERS OF MISFORTUNEhave returned with 17th Street, a brash and heartfelt song cycle, blending the best elements of NWOBHM, Thrash, Doom, and American Folk music while somehow sounding unlike any of these.

17th Street takes the band’s inimitable sound to a new level, creating an emotional gravity that only further accentuates the bands formidable songwriting chops. “I can see how someone could find it an upbeat record at first glance” says John Cobbett, guitarist and producer of the band, also of underground metal legends Ludicra and Slough Feg. “If you listen carefully, you’ll find that each song has its own point of view. You might find hope, or something very different, very dark.”
