Bloody Hammers meet the “Hands of the Ripper” in new video

Posted by on December 3, 2020


Horror-goth metal giants Bloody Hammers are gearing up for their new album, Songs of Unspeakable Terror, which is scheduled to arrive on January 15th via Napalm Records. Today (3rd), the group has unleashed a video for the second single, “Hands of the Ripper.” 


Frontman/multi-instrumentalist Anders Manga comments:

“It’s one of those songs that appeared when I wasn’t trying to write a song. I was just sitting at the drums playing a shuffle beat when the verse melody just popped in my head and I thought, ‘wait this is pretty good’. I immediately started working on it and had it done in a day or two. As a horror rock band, perhaps it’s obligatory to have a Jack the Ripper themed song? I don’t know, these things just happen. We hope somewhere Screaming Lord Sutch is digging it.” 


Manga explains about the album:

“When the pandemic hit and I realized I’d be stuck at home for a while, I started thinking I needed to dig into a music project. I was oddly inspired by the unknown, and fear that this plague was gonna wipe us all out. I needed a creative escape. We’d just released the BLOODY HAMMERS album, ‘The Summoning’ a few months earlier, so I didn’t think about doing another Hammers album at all. When COVID was really hitting NYC hard, that got me thinking about my favorite bands from that whole NY/NJ area… Misfits, Wendy O. Williams, Ramones, Dead Boys, The Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black, Twisted Sister and such. That’s where I found inspiration to do a horror punk-ish record.”
