History

Hanker was formed in 1985 by Patrick Gravel, Pascal Cliche, Martin Jones and Jean-Fran├žois Fillion. The heavy metal unit played in the Quebec City area for about five years before being joined by Luc Guay on drums. It was not until 1991 that the band released a demo. The band shot a video for the song Disturbing The Brain.

In Our World was re-released in Germany in 1996 by Art Of Music, with two bonus songs, under the In Our World Revisited name. This version featured two extra songs. The Dead Ringer was a concept album narrating the diary of a deceased man. The first and third albums were released on vinyl by Cult Metal Classics Records.

The band signed with Skyscraper Records and began writing song towards a 2004 album. Hanker was also booked for Headbangers Open Air 2004. The band and bassist Denis Cossette went their separate ways in the autumn of 2004. The band picked Conspiracy Of Mass Extinction as the title for its next album, which was due in the autumn of 2009 or as soon as a label was found. The album was to be the first with bassist Laurent Imbeau and drummer Sylvain Trembley. Instead, the band was rejoined by drummer Luc Guay (1990-2005). The drummer had left for personal reasons, but now replaced his replacement Sylvain Tremblay.

The band threw in the towel at the beginning of 2011.
