Horrific Case of Bloody Hammers
Reviewer: Eric Compton
Bloody Hammers is back for the ceremony after a disappointing 2016 release. This one, a six-track EP, is a good mix of their older sound but progressing into the gothic realms of the last record. I think this is a much better hybrid of metal-gothic with just the right amount of heaviness, keys, and atmosphere. "Gates of Hell" is a groovy opener with walls of down-tuned riffage to introduce the record. "Blood" is a single and video and a good representation of this year's Bloody Hammers. Abrasive but positioned under the full moon.
