Cleveland's legendary kings of metallic hardcore RINGWORM return with their Relapse debut Hammer Of The Witch.

Riffs and grooves collide on songs like 'Psychic Vampires' and 'Bleed' creating some of the most vicious hooks to get stuck in your brain in a long, long time. Hammer Of The Witch might just be the finest moment in RINGWORM's 20 plus year career. The artwork for the album was designed by frontman Human Furnace.
