Heavy Horror Rockers BLOODY HAMMERS Go Punk on New Album, “Songs Of Unspeakable Terror”
Just in time for the most macabre season of the year, horror-occult-goth metal/rock fusers BLOODY HAMMERS have announced a new horror punk-inspired full-length album! The 11-track offering, entitled Songs Of Unspeakable Terror has been unleashed via Napalm Records and marks a new, eccentric chapter in the Transylvania County, North Carolina-based husband and wife duo’s musical story.
While it doesn’t stray too dangerously far from the sound listeners have grown to infectiously adore, the band’s latest full-length explores yet uncharted territory: retro-ized horror punk in all its gritty glory. This beastly record shouldn’t be confused as an all new direction for the band, though – these songs are a pandemic lockdown labor of love, a temporary foray into the unknown, while still remaining true to the BLOODY HAMMERS sonic trademark.
Get a first listen for yourself, but beware – you’ve never heard BLOODY HAMMERS like this! Today, the band has unveiled an inventive new music video for their first single, “A Night To Dismember” – a dark, swinging, hefty punk two-stepper with an earworm chorus that’ll have fans chanting along in no time.
Kicking off with first single and album opener “A Night To Dismember”, the album careens the listener down a dark, winding auditory road of melodic punk (in a jet-black classic car, of course). Trudging, metallic terrors like “Hands Of The Ripper” and “Witchfinder General”ensnare the listener, while seductive, unrelentingly heavy tracks such as “Not Of This Earth” will have them screaming for more, and head-bobbers like “The Ones Who Own The Dark”prove this offering isn’t short on melody. Laced with spine-tingling vocal lines, bathed in an occult cocktail of granular guitars and accented by a peppering of vintage Mellotron, each track on Songs Of Unspeakable Terror is a bonafide horror punk pillar.
