On July 22nd, West Coast progressive heavy metallers Hammers of Misfortune will release their sixth full-length, Dead Revolution, worldwide via Metal Blade Records. Hammers of Misfortune enlisted Nick Dumitriu (Vhol, Ritual Chamber) to produce this record, utilizing a vintage Trident board and minimizing digital processing. The result is a warm, sharp sound that harkens back to productions like John Leckie’s treatment of Pink Floyd’s Meddle or David Hitchcock’s master work in Camel’s Mirage. For a preview of Dead Revolution stream the title track now!

Recorded at Light Rail Studios in San Francisco, CA, Dead Revolution is more varied than its predecessor (2011’s acclaimed 17th Street), by using different tones, and delving into heavier, darker territory.
