Prior to the holiday season, horror-occult-goth metal/rock fusers BLOODY HAMMERS unleashed two grisly, metallic new tracks to the masses’ delight—the macabre punk earworm “A Night To Dismember” and swinging, gritty anthem “Hands Of The Ripper.” Now, the Transylvania County, North Carolina based husband and wife duo have released a third single and video on the eve of the release of their new horror punk-inspired full-length album, Songs Of Unspeakable Terror.
Conjuring images of retro sci-fi horror, the video for the sultry, doom metal-inspired track, entitled “Not Of This Earth,” complements the words of the song’s extra-terrestrial crooner. Hungry for blood to revitalize his dying planet—he’s not of this earth!
Frontman/multi-instrumentalist Anders Manga says about the track:
“Devallia and I knocked out this video a couple weeks ago in our little cabin basement. The current health crisis has kept us home but the green screen can take us (crudely) anywhere and BEYOND! Lyrically, this song is a straight tribute to Roger Corman’s 1957 drive-in sci-fi/horror classic. As much as I think we’re inspired by Hammer Films and classic European gothic horror, really, Corman is just as important and certainly an American treasure.”
