Hammer

This Ebony Records band released two albums, the first under their original name Holland and the second as Hammer, the name change necessitated by a threatened lawsuit by a Canadian band also called Holland. That second album, Contract With Hell, is arguably one of the better Ebony releases of the early/mid-eighties -- sure, it's standard NWOBHM fare with a commercial edge, not a lot different from a lot of bands at the time, but for good hard rocking 80's-style one could do worse.
