    For years since Hexenhammer’s disappearance fans and collectors alike have spoken of the band as if some hidden secret and sought out any information they could find about the band, but little existed. Even recordings of the band were difficult to come across, and those available were often poor quality and incomplete.
    Finally after all this time some light is being shed on this band of masked characters known as Hexenhammer.
    It is important to listen to these demos in the proper perspective, bearing in mind when, where, how they were recorded. Certainly the Hexenhammer material is not of topnotch recording quality and to expect that would be missing the point of what this material is. These songs gathered here in this release are merely a glimpse of a truly “underground” band that in all their DYI efforts did what they could to create something unique for the time and place in which they were from.
    These recordings are a time capsule of what could have been - and perhaps a look into what may one day be once again.

Track Name: Fear
FEAR

Dance, dance
Dance with death tonight
And I need you
Come on, fear creeping up on me
I'm afraid of what I might do
For my passion, intensifying
I feel as though I'm in shock therapy
Unknown fear that you feel growing nearer
FEAR

From my ribs, it rips
Damn, can't you see
It’s got you by the neck?
I know that you had a feeling inside
Can you really sleep at night
Or is something haunting you and me?

Can you conquer your fear?
Will you cast off your doom?
Scared of what a mess we've made of our lives
Running through the nightmare festivities
Wouldn't it be micfuckingtabulous
If I could turn you around?
Oh well....
Clotted slime, dripping from the bite
What the hell are you doing?
Lo and behold - FEAR
Sick sensationcrawling in the mire
I'm afraid this song will never end
Let me out, Hating life,
Bloody break, coagulate
Track Name: HexenHammer - Hatred Within
HATRED WITHIN

Bacteria of hatred in me
The terror you don't want to see
Each little thing pissing me off
I've been pushed too far
As the enemy laughs
Shaking my cage not knowing
Inside is hatred and pain
Fucking with me is a deadly sin
Now you'll feel my hatred within
Hatred, hatred, hatred, hatred within

You, You know, You don't
You never really seem to understand
And me, I'd like to see
To see you fucking bleed and please me
Forever in my hatred will you live
And now, the end
Bacteria of hatred is setting in
The games that I play, you'll never win
Pushing your face into the wall
You must fall
As the enemy laughs, shaking my cage
Not knowing, inside is hatred and pain
Fucking with me is a deadly sin
Now you'll feel my hatred within

Hatred, hatred, hatred, hatred within
Hatred, hatred, hatred, hatred within
Hatred, hatred, hatred, hatred within
Track Name: HexenHammer - I'm Alive
I'M ALIVE

Scream into the night and you will find
Energy inside of me comes out
Aggression fuels my fire with desire
Wheels are turning that build momentum
That sends the sparks flying
I'm released
Bring down the hammer

I'm alive and you will listen to me
And I will set you free
Light my fuse tonight
And I'll blow up in your face
Create, express myself, larger than life
Now you are under the spell
Down on your knees

Free to live my life and satisfy
The blood that pumps through my veins
I'll get what I want
Aggression fuels my fire with desire
Wheels are turning that feel the impact
Kill- Die- Kick it- Shatter- I'm released
Bring down the hammer

I'm alive and you will listen to me
And I will set you free
Light my fuse tonight
And I'll blow up in your face
Create, express myself, larger than life
Now you are under the spell
Down on your knees
I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive, I'm alive
Track Name: HexenHammer - Invasion (the Victims and the Vanquished)
INVASION (The Victors & the Vanquished)

* Instrumental
Track Name: HexenHammer - Dominate
DOMINATE

I am He, dominates
This world is mine
I rule now
Thriving and all-powerful
Dominate

You see the sign
The new voice to the multitudes
The leader of the masses
The destiny, unstoppable, a juggernaut
Hammer above, under the nail
Now, it is time - Awaken
Mankind - Awake!

Fantasy is now reality
Realization of my prophesy
Hear the Legions howling
Run amok
So, satisfaction is mine
So, now let it be said
HXHXHXH
Dread arrival
You know who you are
Time for retribution is at hand
Now is time for righting all the wrongs
A new gothic-age has arrived
Empire of Man
HXHXHXH
Track Name: HexenHanner - The Untouchables
THE UNTOUCHABLES

You think I'm nobody
I'll remember you
We'll wait until tomorrow
If you change your tune
I don't care
If you have to stop and stare
That's your problem
You had your chance
Now it's too late

I'm untouchable
I'm untouchable
I’m untouchable
I'm untouchable

Pass on by, pretty bitch
Miss Hard-to-get
One day, you'll want to know me
I've got to get away
I'm leaving today
Get my ticket out of here
That's for sure
That they just don't care
Do I know you, now?
Because yesterday is gone

Things are great at the top
Every night and day
And I've been here all along
Now's my chance in the sun

I'm untouchable
I'm untouchable
I'm untouchable
I'm untouchable
Track Name: HexenHammer - Cryptographik
CRYPTOGRAPHIK

Your love is like a razorblade
It cuts me
Your icy fingers on my spine
Don't touch me
Why I live from day to day?
If you bide your time
It's on and on
I feel your hot breath on my neck
You're driving me insane!
Choose your fate
And you'll find the difference
Push it too far
And you'll meet your maker

And you are feeding with the vultures
So as you reap, so shall you sow right now
And like wolves running in the shadows
Into the night it's time to go

And in the enditscryptographik
Get out, oh Ye of little faith I hate
As we go on, the times are changing
Run with the pack, it's time to go

I wait by day
I only come out at night
Hit the highway
Destination out of sight
I'm growing wild
I need it every day
When you ride the tide it's on and on
Into the future, we are going
The world has become a madhouse
There's no way out
The signal's gone haywire
MAYDAY!

And you're trying to survive reality - Bizarre
The future is now here, it surrounds us
High anxiety setting in
Straight to my brain
Feel the pressure on your back
Our crypto menaces
Deal with it, live in fear
You can trust no-one
The end of time draws nearer
And the seconds tick away

Doesnobody understand?
Ormaybeno-onereallycares
Yougottagetyour thrills
Somehow, anyway something’s gottagive
Andallour innocence isgone
The future becomeshistory
Andwhatdidyoudo?
Intochaosand despair
Intohopeandpoverty-
intocrueltyanddeath
Inspiration anddepressed

Every day, sometimes life
When it screws me over
And you can't deal with it
End of fear, losing it
Then go back to the start
With a spell around your heart
Now, your fate's in your hands
Now, do you understand?
What would you say if someone told you
That I was perverted & obscene?

I wanna' be high forever!
Choke on my view
You take or leave it
Blow my mind
That's the situation
Rip your bloody flesh
And take your torture
Face the music
It means more to me
No pain no gain
Deal with it

Cryptographik
Cryptographik
Cryptographik

Forevermore, its cryptographik
You walk a very fine line, all the time
And all in all, it's cryptographik
Into the light, it's time to go
