When hearing The Hand Of Doom it’s easy to understand why. It’s like The Stooges fronted by Count Dracula
with a pinch of Roky Erickson ”The Evil One”-era thrown in for good measure. Think the most punky and brutal
NWOBHM-singles that has ever been recorded. A maximum rock’n’roll guitar riff-a-rama. It’s a DIY punk-metal
masterpiece most likely to blow the minds off everyone into any form of truly great music.
The Hand Of Doom came from a small town called Bad-Hersfield located by the border between former east and
west-Germany. Frustrated by the boredom and absence of anything interesting happening they recorded and
released ”Poisonoise” all by themselves. Brutal & primitive hard rock metal aggression at its finest with killer riffs
guaranteed to appeal to all punk and metal fans, but also to garagerock-maniacs and DIY-lovers.
In early 2019 On The Dole Records went to Germany and found the bandmembers still hanging around the small
village of Bad-Hersfield. The original mastertapes were restored and remastered. The band members were
interviewed and this reissue is fully authorized by the band.
Remastered and restored sound. Extensive liner notes and interviews with the band by Kieron Tyler (Mojo
Magazine). Richly illustrated with many rare photos.
