Tomorrow the German-American Power/Thrash Metal band THEM will release their new single and packshot video for the song "Encore".


With KK Fossor finally being defeated by The Crimson Corpse at the tail end of "Return To Hemmersmoor", his maniacal assistant, Remsen, continues to live out his remaining days on earth always focused on his final task at hand...Remsen must continue his bloodline!


KK is now dead...Or is he? Remsen thought he had heard a bell ring as he left the grave site.


ENCORE (recorded during the "Return To Hemmersmoor" sessions), is a song which concludes this segment of the story.

Stay tuned for the next CHAPTER in THEM's intertwining tale of fear, death, destruction and...Neon!


Coming Fall 2022! FEAR CITY!

HELLO...To ALL of our friends!

Today we unveil the new band logo which aligns with our next album due out in 2022! Previous posts have revealed some clues.

As promised, today we provide the final clue in determining what the title of THEM's 4th album will be. If someone, does guess it right, a nice fiendish sampling of goodies shall be sent their way just in time for Halloween! If not, you will have to wait until it is announced by SPV/Steamhammer in 2022!

The final clue is...

"Walking this wonder of the industrial world (There are 7) will bring us into the heart our story".

The title of THEM's 4th album is "F_ _ _ C_ _ _"

OCT 05, 2021 all our friends!

It is now time to announce THEM's newest band member!


Drummer extraordinaire, Steve Bolognese (Ross The Boss, Death Dealer, Witherfall, Into Eternity), has joined the ranks here at the THEM camp, committed to give nothing but 110% on the upcoming 4th release due out sometime Fall 2022 on SPV/Steamhammer! Drum tracking begins Jan 2022 by Producer Dave Otero from FlatlineAudio!


Stay tuned next week for the final clue to the title of the 4th THEM album. It will surely be a blast from the past! \m/ \m/

Hello to all our friends!

Recently, a passing of the guard has happened here in the THEM camp. Before announcing the addition of our newest member, we would like to reflect on the amazing time we have experienced with a highly regarded drummer, friend and brother...Angel Cotte.

Angel has always been a spark of fire behind the kit and a great friend to all of us in THEM. Don't worry...Angel is still performing with Demolition Hammer! We will truly miss him and wish him the very best with whatever path he takes in his life! \m/ Battle 'Till The End Angel \m/

Stay tuned for upcoming THEM news!!!

Bone white + transparent blue vinyl SOLD OUT within 12 hrs!

You guys are insane, thank you so much!

AUG 14, 2021

We found some strictly limited "Sweet Hollow" vinyl copies in "bone white" and "transparent blue" in our storage.

They have been sold out years ago so these last few copies most probably are the only ones on the market in mint condition. Hurry up before they're gone.

Patches are also available again. We ship world wide.

"A new act in the convoluted tale of THEM is brewing...stay tuned!"

FEB 11, 2021

While we already work on new tunes for album no. 4 there’s still a chance for some live shows in the future ;)

Hopefully we’ll be able to play for you guys before the next record will be out, so we’d like to know your personal faves of all three albums. What do you want to hear?

Just click the following link and choose your songs. You don’t have to register and you can also leave a comment right at the end. We’re really curious about the results!

Thx for participating


DEC 31, 2020


We played not one single show in 2020 due to it-must-not-be-named! At least we were able to release our third album "Return to Hemmersmoor" and we are still very proud of it.

Thx to all of you for your incredible support, we truly appreciate that!

Let's put this otherwise shitty year to rest and don't forget to keep the spirit alive...

CU in 2021!

Time to drink some Battle Blood!

Merry Xmas everybody :)

Consider this an early Christmas present from Head Brewer Steve! Get in here and take home our NEWEST beer available starting TODAY!

BATTLE BLOOD - German Hefeweizen // 6.0% ABV // malty/bready flavors of a Vienna lager interwoven with the banana and clove flavors of a Hefeweizen

Another collaboration beer, this one was made with Steve’s good friend, Markus Johansson, lead guitarist of the band THEM.

Trust us when we say, they made beautiful music together when they brewed this beauty!

Open from 4-9pm tonight for all of your Christmas needs like beer, half off bottles of wine AND handcrafted cocktails to go! Make sure you take home dinner while you’re at it.

As a reminder, we are closed tomorrow and Friday in observation of Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

DEC 21, 2020

Hello, all! Firstly, let us take this moment to thank you all for the support and very positive reception of our new album, “Return to Hemmersmoor!”

Now for the fun part. We know that this year has been extremely difficult for everyone, and shipping has also been MASSIVELY affected. We have received messages saying that Amazon US has cancelled CD orders, but vinyl are still shipping. None of the THEM boys in the band in the states have a copy yet, so don’t feel too left out!

Here is the link to order, which includes digital outlets as well. Steamhammer direct will not be price gouging you like some third party sellers we have seen. That is still the most direct way to support the band, and we appreciate every single one of you that had bought, streamed, made the effort to spread the word about the new album.


Again, from the heaviest bottom end of our hearts, we thank you!

NOV 10, 2020

  • How does working with an international act differ than working with band members all local: I think it’s a great way to keep things fresh, and energetic.

  • Where do you see THEM’a direction going: Each album has a very unique sound and feel, but I think that as long as we maintain the balance and versatility of songs, we’ll keep bringing the heavy. Also, standard answer: darker, heavier, fastest, best record we’ve ever done
