Bloody Hammers releases video for gothic punk anthem “Hands Of The Ripper”

Horror-occult-goth metal/rock fusers Bloody Hammers recently announced the upcoming release of their new horror punk-inspired full-length album, “Songs Of Unspeakable Terror”, out January 15, 2021 via Napalm Records. The 11-track album marks an eccentric new chapter in the Transylvania County, North Carolina-based husband and wife duo’s musical story.

After unleashing their macabre punk earworm “A Night To Dismember” around Halloween, the band is ringing in the new season horror-style with a swinging new anthem, “Hands Of The Ripper”. The bite-sized bop – accompanied by a gritty new music video featuring retro horror film scenes – mixes horror punk elements with rock attitude, soaked in murderous metallic energy!

Frontman/multi-instrumentalist Anders Manga says about the track:

“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.”
