Triumph of Death


Hellhammer’s “Messiah” marks the earliest collaboration between the band’s founder, Tom Gabriel Warrior, and his then new friend (and future Hellhammer bassist) Martin Eric Ain, in late 1983. While Warrior wrote the music, Ain and Warrior co-wrote the lyrics. The song reflects a generation’s perennial foreboding of an impending terminal nuclear escalation in West Europe during the Cold War. Which, remarkably, makes it as topical today as it was when it was first created.

Triumph Of Death’s performance of “Messiah” is taken from the group’s “Resurrection Of The Flesh” live album, and the accompanying video clip was filmed during the group’s concert at Dark Easter Metal Meeting in Munich, Germany, in April of 2023.

Triumph Of Death’s debut live release Resurrection Of The Flesh has been receiving glowing reviews in the press and is being heralded as a masterpiece of extreme metal history already.

“A sustained blizzard of riff-driven ugliness, unholy uproar and otherworldly menace, “Resurrection Of The Flesh” is a monstrous, exhilarating gift from Tom G. Warrior to the astute hordes that hang on his every embittered word and deed. It’s loud, proud, punk as fuck and, even after 40 years, still considerably more dangerous than 99% of everything else that’s going on in metal today. This magnificent abomination endures.” – Blabbermouth 8.5/10

“Resurrection Of The Flesh is surely the most artistically satisfying and eventful live album in recent memory” – Metal Hammer UK 8/10

“I want to say thank you for this piece of metal history…this album is already as timeless as its originals” – Moshpit Passion 10/10

“Without a doubt, it is one of the best live albums in a long time and a must-release in any metal fan’s collection.” – Mariskal Rock 10/10
