New Album The Summoning Out On June 28th
Transylvania County based goth metal duo Bloody Hammers have released a video for Far Beyond The Grave from their upcoming album The Summoning. The video is an homage to classic vintage silent horror movies.
Anders Manga of Bloody Hammers said of 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 favourites 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.”
The U.S. duo has prepared a wonderfully creepy horror musical experience that pays homage to classic flicks such as Let Sleeping Corpses Lie (1974) and Now The Screaming Starts (1973) by creating a dark story around the movie titles. The band’s idea of a soundtrack for your favourite video nasties holds some surprises on their upcoming record.
The Summoning is out on June 26th.
