History

This Quebec City, Canada-based black metal band came together through Zokvist and Silencer in 2007, but split up in 2011 only to come back in 2012. Black Tortured Metal was the 2008 demo. Nekrowristfucked was the 2010 demo. Its cover features what could be a very sexy pole dancer. The Dutch and Canadian Annihilation split release of 2011 featured Toorn/Hak-Ed Damm/Weltschmerz/BlackScorn. The band appeared on several compilations before its debut album in 2017. The record was a concept album remembering World War II. Zokvist had already left however. Winterthrone was the band’s new singer.

Hak-Ed Damm, or ‘Field Of Blood’ is the modern Hebrew name for a hill in Jerusalem, Palestine associated with Jesus and his disciples. The band asserts it wishes to create a “musical war machine concept.”

Reviews

HAK-ED DAMM – HOLOCAUST OVER DRESDEN – SATANATH  
This is a good album that would have been rated even more highly were it not for the repetitions and suspicion of frequently recurring riffs on the disc. As is, the band is vicious, speedy, merciless and obviously fans of Impaled Nazarene in general and Tol Cormpt Norz Norz Norz in particular.
The ferocious but repetitious band’s ingredients include animalistic screams and growls, the occasional abnormal bass line, frantic drumming and loads of World War II references and even dubs. One would hope this band is not Nazi. Fascism is abhorrent and against the ideals of heavy metal. There is a recording of very nice children preparing to be sodomized at the beginning of Blooming Grove and the album ends with Ich Hatte Einen Kameraden (‘I Had A Comrade’) and the music of Hitler’s Luftwaffe. Aside from these dubs and the odd instrumental interlude this is very strong metal unless the band loves Hitler, which is very weak. – Ali “The Metallian”
