Lovely Sort of Death
Reviewer: Eric Compton
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.
