Napalm Records/Sound Pollution

Third time lucky perhaps for American band BLOODY HAMMERS, The line-up of Devalia, organ, keyboards, Anders Manga, guitars, bass, vocals, drums, and Doza, drums, seem to be on to something according to the Buzz. As you may have guessed the band once was Anders Manga, every instrument in the early Days, i.e. 2012. There is something about the Witchfinder image, the horror Movie style and te oddly dry vocals that might help them to fame.

The thing about the album is that it is oddly flat, like Ander´s vocals. The best might be the opener, single nd video track "The Town that Dreaded Sundown", They really sound like a horror Movie soundtrack. The worst is the flat vocals and dry production of almost deprock sounding songs like "Welcome to the Horror Show". When they get catchy as in the aforementioned opener, the title track, and the oddly psychedelic Hammer Horror styled "The Moon-Eyed People" they re a treat. But that kind of character is far too far between here. Nope, if you want quirky Matthew Hopkins imagery and something of a proto-doom sound my recommendation is still WITCHFINDER GENERAL!
