“This album is certainly the darkest album I've ever recorded. I wrote the songs over the winter, which was an unusually snowy one. We live high on a mountain with a steep treacherous driveway so when any snowfall happens, we're stuck for days. Luckily, as a result of all the isolation, my songwriting mood ended up much more on the darker side than previous records. The songs are heavy, but not always heavy. I wanted to create more atmosphere than before. It's a stylistically varied record which I'm very proud of. I used the Moog more on this album which blends well with the heavy guitar fuzz tones. It's definitely my favorite album so far in every way.”
BLOODY HAMMERS are a duo who hail from the mountains of Transylvania County, NC. The project and first self-titled release was originally formed as a studio only project with vocalist/songwriter, Anders Manga producing and recording all instruments
Soon Anders decided to take the project from the studio to a real band by recruiting his wife Devallia to play keyboards and other local musicians for live shows.
In late 2013 Anders was approached by one of Europe's largest rock and metal labels, Napalm Records. In 2014 Napalm released Bloody Hammers' second official album titled 'Under Satan's Sun'. In support, the band embarked on a European tour, ending at UK's largest rock festival, 'Download' to a great reception.
Through the snowy winter of 2015, Anders began writing again, but this time took a much darker and atmospheric direction.
For the first time he added thick Moog sounds along with his normal fuzzed-out guitar, with more atmospheric keys provided by Devallia.
They emerged from the winter with 'Lovely Sort of Death', their darkest album yet.
