Thorr's Hammer was an American-Norwegian death-doom band. Thorr's Hammer was formed in Ballard, Washington by Greg Anderson and Stephen O'Malley during winter 1994-1995. Soon after, Runhild Gammelsæter, then a 17-year-old Norwegian exchange student, joined the band as vocalist/lyricist. The band reached its final form when Jamie Sykes and James Hale joined. The band was active only for six weeks during which it played two gigs and recorded a demo and an EP entitled Dommedagsnatt.

Thorr's Hammer was one of the earliest projects worked on by modern-day Grimm Brothers Greg Anderson and Stephen O'Malley and even in those days they were serious students of subsonik speleology: their twin guitar excavations churn through tunnels of thick granite and black basalt, accreting a thick sludgy layer of crust and scree on their strings while the rhythm section. I had expected the denouement to be sloppy but everyone maintains a tight band discipline right to the very end. Not long after this live performance Gammalsaeter returned to Norway and Thorr's Hammer disbanded with the remaining musicians forming Burning Witch.

It's one thing to name your doom/death band Thorr's Hammer and sing/croak all lyrics in Norwegian if you're actually from Norway, but when a couple of severely depressed stoners take up such a challenge in the state of Washington, you know something very unusual, and possibly timeless, is afoot.

Dommedagsnatt is the only album released by Thorr's Hammer. It was originally released on Moribund Records on cassette in 1996, but it was not until it was re-released on CD in 1998 on Southern Lord Records (the first release for the label) that it began to gain more popularity. The CD release contained a track that was not on the original cassette version (Mellom Galgene).
