Bloody Hammers release video for ‘Blood’

By on 2 June 2017

Bloody Hammers have released a video for the track ‘Blood’ taken from the band’s forthcoming EP ‘The Horrific Case of Bloody Hammers’ to be released 14 July on Napalm Records. You can buy ‘The Horrific Case of Bloody Hammers’ here.

Their new six-song EP ‘The Horrific Case Of Bloody Hammers’ descends from the dark mountain peaks of Transylvania. Here somber-sacral organ symphonies slide over cruel hammering staccato riffing. Our master of horror is Anders Manga, who delivers a bombastic, powerful voice over Devallia’s sinister synthesizers. The ice-cold nostalgia of ’70s B-list thrillers shoots through the veins directly into the heart. In ‘The Beyond’ their piercing Gothic sound shifts to a sensual, The Cure-esque brand of pop. A soundtrack for the exploration of past lives.

Anders on ‘Blood’:

“Ultimately, the song is about the quest for freedom from oppression in any form. Many people blindly accept oppression simply because they were told to, or out of fear of retaliation from family or eternal damnation. Some never question it, because they don’t even realize they are being oppressed. If constant fear and threats prevent one from simply enjoying their life, then something needs to change.

The budget was a little tight on this EP so we turned to Häxan, one of our favorite movies of all time, for additional footage. I remember ages ago, renting a documentary on satanism and the occult (on VHS by the way) from a local mom & pop video store. It was just a dumb typical satanic panic 80’s style documentary, but they had footage from Häxan in it, which fascinated me. It wasn’t credited on the video so it took me a long time time to find out what it was from. When I learned it was made in 1922, I was shocked. The visuals were better than some of the effects I was seeing in modern movies.”
