Bloody Hammers – Spiritual Relics


Bloody Hammers – Spiritual Relics
Soulseller records – 2013
Rock, Hard, Psych, Doom, Seventies
Rated: ***

The new album Spiritual Relics by Bloody Hammers starts off with a nice, dusty and gritty riff that reminds of something from way back. After which the What’s Haunting You track develops nicely into the obscure, hardrock and psychedelic venue with that occult little twist we know from their first effort. Infectious, groovy and warm. After which they gothic up and slow down and aim for some ancient knowledge. Their biggest feat is probably the way they sound so big and mystical by way of tiny little touches of organs and excellent timed vocal lines. But don’t fear, or do, cause the evil ingenious riffs are there and so is the heavy dangerous pounding sound of the drums. Pure haunting enjoyment that gives Ghost a run for their Black Pete and Saint Nicholas money…

  1. I wish there was more organ here, but that's true of how I feel about most albums!
