bloody hammers

Bloody Hammers' new EP, 'The Horrific Case Of Bloody Hammers', is released on Napalm Records on July 14th and today, here on MetalTalk we are premiering the audio of all six tracks.

This very special case is a webstore and band only release strictly limited to 300 copies. The EP descends from the dark mountain peaks of Transylvania and features somber-sacral organ symphonies that slide over cruel hammering staccato riffing.

The master of horror, Anders Manga, delivers a bombastic, powerful voice over his wife Devallia's sinister synthesizers. The ice-cold nostalgia of 70s b-list thrillers and horror flicks shoots through the veins directly into the heart. Here it is, for your listening pleasure.

Bloody Hammers released the new video for 'Blood' last month and Anders Manga said this about it:

"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 'Hxan', 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 80s style documentary, but they had footage from 'Hxan' 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."

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
