Hammers of Misfortune Quotes
I've wanted to do a Rock Opera ever since I started playing. It wasn't until '96 or so that I even considered it as a real possibility, as I finally knew some people who had the desire and the ability to attempt such an ambitious project. The idea for the story itself was influenced quite a bit by watching Joseph Campell's lectures really late at night on PBS.
Unholy Cadaver actually started as a solo "dark ambient," keyboard driven project. An actual band slowly began to form around this idea, and it got more and more "Metal" as time went on. The name stuck. I thought, and still think, that Unholy Cadaver is a cool name for a keyboard project, but it's a terrible name for a metal band. Especially since there is already a band called Unholy (one of my favorite bands), and a band called Cadaver. As for associations with Death Metal, the name did sound like that of a 'brutal' type death metal band, and was therefore misleading. All in all, we had plenty of reasons to opt for a more appropriate moniker.
