Into the Silent Nebula is the third album from the U.K.'s Damnation's Hammer, a band that plays doom-tinged thrash metal. The guitars have a mean, nasty tone and the riffs are sharp and punchy, but I find both to be on the repetitious side, sounding pretty much the same throughout much of the album. I like it when they slow down ("The Silent Nebula") or go off on a weird, Voïvod-esque tangent ("Into the Silent Nebula"), but most of the songs are relentless body blows and aural assaults. The vocals are a hindrance as well, with the singer displaying a limited palette of shouts and barks that are rather charmless. There are some good moments on Into the Silent Nebula, but they are mixed in with several that are a chore, so set your expectations appropriately.
