The record will see aFebruary 3, 2013 release date in North America via Soulseller, distributed by RED. Described as “an addictive album with a retro edge that appeals to both the Nick Cave and Black Sabbath sides of the brain,” Bloody Hammers was recorded and produced by bassist / vocalist Anders Manga at NC’s Greystone Studios. Decibel magazine brings underground music fans a taste of the band’s debut, rolling out the killer cut “Black Magic” (and noting that it’s not a Slayer cover!).  Check out the action at this location.

Named in homage to the singularly atomic Roky Erickson & The Aliens song of the same name, BLOODY HAMMERS play dark, hallucinatory heavy music that is as primitive and powerful as a dry stone wall and propelled by bassist Anders MangaBLOODY HAMMERS‘ full length debut is an explosion of heavy sound and melodies that has been called “a psych / hard rock / horror fan’s dream come true” and is sure to find favor with music fans who can dig an array of dark sounds from Electric Wizard and Acid Bath to Alice Cooper and David Bowieto Joy Division and Bauhaus. The self-titled LP captures the band’s strong display of dooming riffs, dashboard-pounding grooves and vocals that segue from angry wail to soaring croon while warning listeners of impending doom. Headed to a black mass love-in? BLOODY HAMMERS‘ debut is for you!

“This album is a heavy and melodic collection of evil songs, and I could not be happier with the result,” says Manga. “Stylistically, I wanted to make a horror fueled hard rock album and this debut LP reflects that very sentiment and much more.”

“Bloody Hammers is loud, heavy and musically reminiscent of classic 1970s rock. Lyrically and sonically, the album weaves in elements of psychedelia and hints at European metal as well.” – GUITAR WORLD

“old-school psychedelic occult doom, taking its name from the creepy song “Bloody Hammer” by legendary alt-rock icon Roky Erikson, from his horror-themed album The Evil One…a balanced blend of old and new era occult-themed rock fused into a mega-loud, swirling vortex” – FEARNET

“BLOODY HAMMERS is a new band that will captivate fans of retro sounds…thick atmosphere” – QUEEN OF STEEL

“Clearly inspired by Roky Erickson and Black Sabbath in equal measure, this band is all meat, no filler, just bleary-eyed bikerdoom jams until your head caves in.” – ADVANCED DEMONOLOGY
