The band was formed by two guitar players Dali Vavrek and Joe Farkas in Bellevue, WA back in 2001.

The duo started to jam at Evolution Studios playing their favorite metal tunes of the 80s metal era. Soon they were joined by singer Ben Burris, bass player DJ Hill and drummer Kurt Roberts. The group started to rehears and soon played as an opening act for an original recording band Second Coming at the now defunct, Fenix Underground in Seattle. Throughout the years the band played numerous venues around the Puget Sound.  Places like the Royal Bear, Red Tavern, Valhalla, Liquid Lime, Pickled Onion, Big Daddy's and many more. The band also played open air festivals in Leavenworth and Wenatchee.  In 2004 Joe Farkas left the band and was replaced by Jim Carlson on lead guitar. In 2006 a new drummer, Craig Nicolls, joined the band and also John Crain on bass guitar. In 2011 Joe Farkas rejoined the band and took a possition of the lead guitar player.  In the summer of 2013 Eduardo Giancristofaro became the bass player and Brad Noe joined the band as the lead singer. 

Subsequently the band played at Studio 7 in Seattle with new line up. The recent changes brought former member of Hairmageddon Lenny Low on bass guitar to the current line up. In May of 2016 Peter Heckled replaced Kevin Hammond on drums. You can see the new Hammerdog band playing around the local bar scene.
