Label: Napalm Records
Year: 2014

Bloody Hammers is a dark rock/occult band from North Carolina and “Under Satan’s Sun” is their 3rd effort. Their marketing strategy is wise enough to focus on the image and the artwork, that has a nostalgic touch bringing us a ‘70s like horror movies posters in mind.

Lyrically speaking, H.P. Lovecraft and Ray Bradbury is in the foreground, while musically this doom/goth/rock/occult/evil pop mixture is far from average and has its moments definitely. But I don’t know if there’s more room for another Ghost-like band out there (but probably much heavier than the Swedes). Songs like “Second Coming” (original performed by Alice Cooper), “Welcome to the Horror Show” and “The Town That Dreaded Sundown” are absolutely awesome, but this kind of rock is already overloaded with too many bands that want a piece of the cake. The main problem of this release is that the band has released 3 albums in a period less than 2 ½ years, so being too productive may affected their ability to be more focused on their compositions. Fans of this sound will find them attractive though… Fair enough…

Surrealism : Pure psychic automatism, by which one proposes to express, either verbally, in writing, or by any other manner, the real functioning of thought. Dictation of thought in the absence of all control exercised by reason, outside of all aesthetic and moral preoccupation. Surrealism is based on the belief in the superior reality of certain forms of previously neglected associations, in the omnipotence of dream, in the disinterested play of thought. It tends to ruin once and for all other psychic mechanisms and to substitute itself for them in solving all the principal problems of life.
