Germany, 1486: The Dominican inquisitors Kramer and Sprenger publish "MALLEUS MALEFICARUM" "The Hammer of the Witches", the most important book on the Headhunt and execution of witches and heretics in medieval Europe. The book features detailed information on how to recognize, judge and execute the witches.
MALLEUS MALEFICARUM was approved by the Catholic Church in the year of 1487.
Norway, 1986: Five guys from the Sarpsborg area in southeast Norway get together to form Withchammer, playing compromiseless thrashy HM with melodic overtones and drawing inspiration to many of their lyrical concepts from the MALLEUS MALEFICARUM, from which the name also is derived. Only this time, the hammer is here to stay... With the classic release of 1487 (vinyl now a sold-out item CD available) and the The Lost Tapes, the book of Witchhammer is continuously in creation..
Norway, 2011: A new Chapter, new vocalist, a keyboardplayer and 9 new songs . Based on a true story of a woman which head was put on a stake in the 1500 century Check out our CD's merch and other strange things here: http://shop.witchhammer.com
