The art of Hammerblaze emphasizes themes of barbarian fantasy, dramatic literary, historical, and legendary scenes to evoke immortal greatness against adversity. The works contain complex, highly original, imaginative, and dense use of details and iconography, some of which have made Hammerblaze's artworks a competitive and assertive force of recognition within the metal musical arena.
“My work with Hammerblaze is Art that stands for three simple principles: POWER to achieve results with perseverance, IDEALISM to create works with heart, and WAR to defy reality with artistic statements. I believe that a creative mind must stand outside the system and strongly reject all norms from the status-quo. That's the core of my work. Creativity Against The Norms.” — A.R. Valgorth
