Christhammer is the second album by Kentucky sludge/thrash band Stonecutters.

BackgroundEdit

Writing and RecordingEdit

Work had begun on Christhammer in roughly 2008, with the band expanding on their sludgy sound into a faster direction. In an interview with Doodlehound, guitarist/vocalist talked about the evolution of the band at this point:

“I wrote "The Death of Me" which is not super slow and a little more "upbeat" and the song "Stonecutters" and that's where it all began, "Our Mother Of Sorrows"... It was kind of Eyehategod-ish, you know and early Sleep, we liked a lot of that stuff. Honestly, over time we just got tighter and faster and kind of incorporated more of a (thrash and death influence).

I just wanted to pick up the pace and the musicians I got-- Johnny's just a phenomenal drummer so I wanted to show him off. Then we went from Cliff to Leffler, which Leffler was a total shredder...”

 
— Brian Omer, Doodlehound [1]

Christhammer would be released as a double CD release party with Louisville metal band Antikythera at Uncle Pleasant's on March 28, 2009.[2]
