Peaceville founder Paul "Hammy" Halmshaw is seriously ill and needs your help in order to be able to implement urgent renovations.

Bad news from Paul "Hammy" Halmshaw, founder of the British cult label Peaceville. “After a life full of music, I became seriously ill during the lockdown,” writes Hammy on the fundraising page JustGiving . "I was diagnosed with the hereditary disease dilated cardiomyopathy."

This is a pathological enlargement of the heart muscle that can be fatal. Due to this severe reduction in the performance of the heart, Hammy can no longer climb stairs. In order to be able to convert his two-story apartment accordingly, he launched a crowdfunding campaign. At this point in time, 32% of the required £ 10,000 has been achieved.

Formative bands at Peaceville

The British label Peaceville Records was founded in 1987 by Paul "Hammy" Halmshaw in West Yorkshire. Started with tape releases from local punk and crust acts, the bands Electro Hippies and Doom soon found their way to Peaceville. It wasn't long before young bands released their debuts on Hammy's label with Autopsy and Paradise Lost .

More and more international bands were looking for their home at Peaceville, including Darkthrone , At The Gates and Pentagram , but the label was best known through three bands that shaped British Gothic / Doom like no other: Paradise Lost , My Dying Bride and Anathema . The fact that Katatonia and Opeth later signed with Peaceville also speaks for itself.

In 2000, Hammy Snapper Music joined them, and Peaceville got even bigger: Bloodbath and Cradle Of Filth came, and the (musically) darkest phase of the label began: With Dødheimsgard, Darkthrone , Mayhem , Rotting Christ , Thorns, Aura Noir , Taake and Mysticum released albums at Peaceville. In 2006 Paul Groundwell took over the management of the label from Snapper, as Hammy only wanted to concentrate on his company Vile Music Publishing.
