MAGIC HAMMER / Press

"Truth is, we don't know what we know anymore. If Eric W. Brown himself were to put this record on, we'd have to search his face for a smirk. And even if we couldn't find one, we might still think his expression was part of some bigger, more elaborate hoax. Maybe this is another one of those Andrew WK kind of things? The only thing we are sure of is this: If it is some sort of sophisticated joke, it's on us. Regardless, go listen to Most Extreme Ultimate Thunder, if only because it's the most confounding record ever made. Maybe."

"Eric W. Brown is RainbowDragonEyes to the chiptune world, drummer for Inferi and Destroy Destroy Destroy to the metal world, and elsewhere he can be found by the handle iheartdoublebass. From this twisted mind comes a new musical entity known as Magic Hammer. The debut album Most Extreme Ultimate Thunder melds rave-worthy happy hardcore with furious death-metal, in an explosive style they call "extreme dance music". The album morphs from rainbow candy-pop into epic metal riffs, often over the course of a single song or a series of fluid seconds, like an energy drink in musical form."

"Sometime in the distant future, when national media outlets have filled their quota of “Nashville: Not Just Country Music?” stories, they can all finally move on to the next logical progression: “Nashville: Not Just Indie Rock?!” Local musician Eric W. Brown is doing Nashville more favors than you can imagine by making blips (like, literal blip sounds) all over the world without the use of an acoustic guitar or Pitchfork’s approval. As Rainbowdragoneyes, Brown has become a chiptune festival favorite, programming esoteric 8-bit Eurotrash dance beats on an old school Gameboy. He’s pulling double duty lately as Magic Hammer, where he welds the aforementioned Eurobit fusion with power metal to create an ungodly fusion I can’t believe hasn’t been done more often."

"How would you like to change the world? I would like very much to explosion it, and to reshape it in my image. Spread party across the lands. Devour infidelity, redundancy, and shit consequence at the unrighteous. Clear some space for everyone doing better and more interesting things, then party with them"

"Intertwined with his 8bit path lies his other major musical creation MAGIC HAMMER, an out-of-this-world amalgam of eurobeat, power metal and many other EXTREME to the MAXXX components (read the manifesto). MH released an album in late 2009, which can be sampled (and bought!) on amazon.com and iTunes. Its release party was quite the event; an Army of Para Para Dancers was summoned from the depths of hells to captivate the crowd with mesmerizing dance patterns. So what else is coming up for Eric? Read on and find out!"
