Sludgehammer Announce Tour Dates
Formed in 2013, Sludgehammer, a 5 piece Canadian metal band has been making waves in the music scene. Starting out with members Jeff Wilson (guitarist) and Fernando Villalobos (drums), they found vocalist Chris Szarota, who possessed an astonishing vocal ferocity and bassist and vocalist Dan Ayers, who also revealed a golden voice. Even though it was completely self-recorded the demo released at the bands’ first gig on November 22nd, 2013 was well received. On August 11th, 2014, the second recording, Organ Harvester, produced by Christian Anderson was released, again to rave reviews. In July 2015, Tyler Williams joined Sludgehammer, cementing the 5-piece band we see currently.
