  Song  lyrics  cover  drinking,  fighting  and  everyday  themes,  while  the  production  has  a  very  strong,  powerful,  heavy and  professional  sound where  you  can  hear  all  of  the  musical  instruments  that  are  present  on  this  recording.

  In  my  opinion  Hammer  Fight  are  a  very  great  sounding  thrash'n'roll  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "I  Didn't  Feel Like  Drinking  (Until  I  Started To  Drink)"  "Made  In  Rock"  "Hella  Weights"  and  "Bar  Room  Bully".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
