VIDEO PREMIERE! The Transylvania County based duo Bloody Hammers release the second official video from their upcoming album "The Summoning". “From Beyond The Grave” transports the dark and sinister feeling that only BLOODY HAMMERS can summon in 2019. The wonderfully creepy horror mix of 80s hard rock, gothic, doom and epic metal riffs are wonderfully illustrated in the new video with a silent film era twist. The video was once more produced by the band itself in the BLOODY HAMMERS Film Studios.
Anders Manga on the video and the song:
“The video is obviously a homage to F.W. Murnau and his early horror work in the silent film era. We had a great time making the video. The song, in a horror rock way, is a narrative from the perspective of a ghost who wants to return to his love on earth. I have so many favorites from the new album, but this is one of those straight forward hard rock tracks that I hope to see people blasting by the pool this summer… while covered in goth strength sunblock of course.”

Anders Manga on the new album:
"When I think about my earliest influences, the horror film genre is just as important as musical influences and they’re all fuzed together in my brain from childhood. When I was a kid, there was a show called ‘Shock Theatre’ that aired late at night on our local WGHP network in the early 80s. They played ‘Dr. Phibes Rises Again’, ‘Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things’ and weirdness like that. Around the same time slot, over on channel 61, there was a music video show that played Ozzy, Iron Maiden, Alice Cooper and all those artists our satanic panicked local churches and teachers were freaking out about... and forbidding.
I tried to put myself back in that time when I wrote The Summoning. In my mind, it’s a tribute musically and lyrically to those magical macabre memories. Back when paranoid adults thought kids were brainwashed and likely worshiping Satan in the woods… good times!"
Frontman Anders Manga infused the new album tracks with epic metal and hard rock nuances. But don’t fret, the lumbering doom riffs deliver massive doses of goth rock, and Devallia’s psychedelic keyboards are present ever-still, and turn their latest effort The Summoning into a well-balanced, lush and highly infectious affair.
The Summoning will be available in the following formats:
1 LP Gatefold
2LP Gatefold (Purple) – Napalm Records Mailorder Exclusive, Strictly Limited to 200 Units
