HammerFail is a Swedish progressive epic symphonic post punk/polka brutal alternative power metal band from the 1323 founded by J.K.J.I.U.J.K. Rowling. Their singer Joakim Canns (born André de Montbard) was the fifth Grandmaster of the Knights Templar before he shifted his focus. He teamed up with a couple of fellow crusaders and, according to legend and Heeding The Call, found a time-machine which enabled them to travel to 1998.
But before leaving his time to go to the future, sir Canns formed in Jerusalem an order of heavy metallers, The holy riffers. Since the crusades times this order has expanded in all the middle-east, and today it's focal point is in the mighty city of Byblos, hometown of the ruler of the holy riffers, the grand drummer Joe Francis...(but this is another story...)
They made their first record in 1997 - which confuses when compared to the above - and since then they've
crusaded toured all over Europe - excluding Turkey because of the vast number of heathens inhabiting the province.
In 2005, their Genocide With The Hammer tour got Sweden on the verge of being sanctioned by the U.N.
