So Invisible Oranges recently produced a thingy on Lucifer's Hammer which I found to be far too brief. So I thought I would add a bit of info that might fill some gaps.
In case you haven't heard of it, Lucifer's Hammer was a weekly Metal Monday gig circa late 90s/early 2000s that sort of ushered in the new wave of San Francisco Metal that had been pretty much dormant since the death of the thrash scene a few years previous to that.
Since I played and helped book the first few shows, and 2 members of my band Sangre Amado went on the help form Weakling and Ludicra, I'd have a couple words to say about all this. So I went back and dug up what I feel are a couple of the most important interviews I did on this subject. They fill in lots of gaps if you wanna know more. Enjoy!
