Hellhammer’s “Apocalyptic Raids” is set to be reissued on March 27. The effort, which will be available on deluxe gatefold LP and mediabook CD, has been remastered by V.Santura (Triptykon) and it features art from founding member Tom Gabriel Warrior (Triptykon, etc.) and an expanded booklet with rare photos and new liner notes.
“It truly is a pleasure to see BMG Rights Management/Noise Records finally utilizing their rights to significant parts of Hellhammer’s early 1980s catalogue, and to know that they are doing this with utmost respect and the necessary understanding of the group’s eminence and spirit. And it is an honour for me to have been asked to participate in this reissue project by developing the concept and overseeing both the remastering process and art direction.”
“I am deeply grateful for the efforts the label has invested into this project, and I know I speak for all former Hellhammer band members, deceased and alive, by stating how grateful we all feel that Hellhammer’s music is still relevant and in demand all of these many years later.”

01. “The Third Of The Storms (Evoked Damnation)”
03. “Triumph Of Death”
