Twilight Hammer started in the year 2006 as a solo project by Jon Incendiis, out of the ashes of his former band Burning Blade. While Burning Blade was a speed/thrash hybrid the goal of Twilight Hammer was to be heavier, faster, and more epic.
The 2007 debut album "Orcish Steel" was single-handedly recorded and released by Jon and in the summer of that year Jon teamed forces with Michigan drummer Sean Cyriis and ex-Burning Blade bass player Ianskull. The trio played the Glory Through Steel festival in Toronto and after that the desire to play live and continue writing as a band put Jon into action.
Sean Cyriis and Ianskull could not commit, but a bass player was found in Paul Pervertis of Demontage fame. Eventually, after a long search and various shows with session drummers, a permanent drummer was found in Joel Militia, who had actually joined the band on lead guitars.
The band is now working on it's second full-length release, hopefully to be in existence sometime in 2011.
