Dezeray\'s Hammer was formed in early 1999 by Aaron Whisnant, Kenny Hogan, and Chris Francisco (later added Arthur Brooks). On the heels of the song \'Praying\', which was featured on Billboard Talent Net\'s \'Best Unsigned Bands\' in the USA, Dezeray\'s Hammer signed and released their debut record with Nuetron Records/EDEL on possibly the worst week in our countries history....week of September 11th 2001! Needless to say timing was not on the bands side. Music promotion wasn\'t exactly priority #1 as momentum started. From there, the group went on to release two more independent records and kept the touring range primarily in the southeast.
