Emerging from Chicago's Southside, SHADOW HAMMER is a melting pot of the ideals, influences, and styles of four musicians. The band refuses to let any specific genre define them, while hinting at punk,metal,stoner,doom,funk,hip hop, and just about anything else in between
"This is music for hiking across an alkaloid wasteland, equipped with enough oxygen and dried food to last through several days trek through a nitrogen-saturated atmosphere. There is a metallic taste to the air, and the sun, even at high noon, obscured by layers of sooty gas and overstuffed rain clouds. Black Dice, even when trying to inject a little rhythmic propulsion into their mechanic-industrial commotion, come off brittle and oil-stained futuristic."
