The eclectic and versatile (Gwar, Ludicra, Slough Feg, Amber Asylum, Jarboe) guitarist John Cobbett from San Francisco gave birth in the late 90s to HAMMERS OF MISFORTUNE, previously known as UNHOLY CADAVER.

Later in 2001 the band released their first full length album “The Bastard” (an epic tale told in three acts with three distinct characters/voices) on Tumult Records. Critically acclaimed, the album was voted among the top 40 releases of 2001 by the writers of Terrorizer magazine. Lamentations Of The Flame Princess magazine declared 2001 to be "the Year Of the Hammers" and named "The Bastard" Best Album, Best Concept Album and Best Overall Packaging.

In 2003 the band signed a deal with CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC, releasing their second opus “The August Engine” by the end of the same year.

In 2005 HAMMERS OF MISFORTUNE began the recordings of their third album “The Locust Years”, under the supervision of Justin Weis at Trackworx Studios which is finally released, again via CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC, in June 2006 (US) and September 2006 (Europe). — Cruz Del Sur Music
