Whatever form of media or art I've encountered hailing from Japan has been... rather weird, to say the least. I'm talking about their unique commercials and that phenomenon we nowadays dubbed "Japanese tentacle porn", just to name a few. Music-wise, this country also houses a small anomaly in the form of an all-girl black metal band, known as Gallhammer (obvious rip-off of the name Hellhammer is obvious?), and these galls have been getting quite some attention lately. I don't know if it's because people genuinely like what the band does, or is it simply some form of shock value seeing little girls blasting one of the most extreme forms of music nowadays? Whatever the reason, The End is not deserving of attention. In fact, what it deserves is to be either buried some ten thousand feet beneath the ground or, pardon my meme usage, killed with fire.

Rating: 5 Not as impressive as 'ill innocence',but 'The end' shows they can pull it off even without a guitar. A guitar might have helped to make a better sound mind.....

Rating: 3 How could anyone take this piece of shit seriously is beyond me. Songs like Aberration should be ilegal.

yeah, indeed.
Remember how we laughed when we first heard halfway through last April?
why it sells is because it's made by two tiny Japanese girls of who one is doing Maniac.

Hhahahah yeah. I remember how the first song was like "oh, this is actually a bit decent" and then it went downhill from there...
The awful thing is that I listened to some of the songs right now just for the hell of it... It wasn't even funny, just plain fucking annoying. It doesn't even work as a joke album.

Edit: Found amusing how you gave it a higher rating while I gave The Browning a higher rating.

  Gallhammer's discoG is like the one of Enthroned's; waste of time.
RavenKing - 10.10.2011 at 22:47  
  I heard only "Aberration" and "The End", but damn! All I can say is it fucking sucks.
Even Sin Nanna can do better than that.

Aw, c'mon. Leave Ill Innocence alone. That's an awsome album. Even though I rated it highly, I can see why people hate The End. It isn't even an aquired taste. Like a Limp Bizkit album (another of my favorite bands). Hmm, Gallhammer, Limp Bizkit... I mightn't have much credability left.

Ill Innocence is crap at best as well, just like all their albums.

Nah, don't thinks so. Remove Delerium Daydream and get a decent lead vocalist (don't ditch Reaper - I love that voice) and I'd give it a 10.
I blame Peaceville for a lot of the negativity directed at the band.

I blame the band itself with its talentless ugly skanks. Naming your band Gallhammer after another crap, yet influential band, Hellhammer isn't the smartest thing to do. But in comparison to Gallhammer Hellhammer are masters.

They don't deserve the level of promotion that Peaceville gives them. They're promoted like they're Judas Priest, the Spice Girls and Cream all rolled into one. Their sound is never going to be popular, even among the metal and punk fans their music MIGHT appeal to. Gallhammer are one of those bands which, like the aforementioned Hellhammer and possibly Gwar as another example, are disliked by most, but will have a small fan base that enjoy their music to the bewilderment of those that don't.
"talentless ugly skanks" Personal attacks over the internet against people you've never met? I thought you were 40-something. Not 14.

Hellhammer is liked by most. Extreme metal fans disliking Hellhammer are in a huge minority. Gwar's music is fun but nothing more and they totally ride on their shows which are immense fun.

Yes, talentless ugly skanks. Talentless because they lack talent, ugly because they are (beauty is in the eye of the beholder) and skanks, well at least one is using Maniac in no uncertain terms to get the band even more attention. And btw who says I never met them? I did, and even if I hadn't I can draw my own conclusions. But apparently we have to be all nice and dandy about other people.

Talentless is relevent to the discussion, as it is about the band's music. Ugly is as you said, but isn't relevent to the topic. The skank part, however, is the kind of thing that can derail an intelegent debate abd see it spiral into petty namecalling.
Slaughter and Maniac met when Skitliv were the support act for Gallhammer on some tour FOLLOWING the release of Ill Innocence. They had already been signed to Peaceville (it was Darkthrone who got them there), so Maniac had little to no imact on Gallhammer, other than some minor increase in the band's exposure. And since when was it skanky behavior to marry someone? I know there's a fair age difference, but he's not exactly an 80 year old billionaire, is he?
If most people like Hellhammer, most of the haters must be here, since I rarely see anything good said about them here.

Definitely one of the more objective critiques I've read. Kudos.

Although Marcel has a point about Hellhammer. I'd say the majority of extreme metal fans like them - or at least pretend to.
