Bloody Hammers
Lovely Sort of Death
Company: Napalm
Release: 2016
Genre: Gothic/Symphonic
Reviewer: Eric Compton
Published: 10/10/2016

A very different Bloody Hammers, more goth and less heaviness
COMMENTS:
I'm not sure what to make of this new version of Bloody Hammers. Gone for the most part is the heavier doomy distorted guitar, sacrificed on the altar for a new gothic cloaked deity that seems more like Anders' solo albums. Don't get me wrong I love the guy's work and really appreciate what he does. But when I turn on Bloody Hammers I want the heavier, less darkwave aspect of Anders Manga. This new album is very gothic and incorporates elements that would fit fans of Nosferatu, mid-era Moonspell, Bauhaus, etc. I'm not turning the love off, but I'm turning off this album.
RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF:
Nosferatu, Dead Can Dance, Type-O-Negative
