Bloody Hammers

(Soulseller)

Black lipstick and plastic fangs meet Marshall stacks on the debut full-length from Bloody Hammers, former synth-happy goth rocker Anders Manga. The North Carolinian's baritone is certainly ripe enough for grave digging and female neck-sucking, but it's his comfort with fuzzbomb riffola that keeps Bloody Hammers burly and attractive. That and his healthy obsession with cheesy horror's effect on tattooed ladies in black leather pants. The pounding "Trisect," "The Last Legion of Sorrow," and "Black Magic," which borrows Black Sabbath's "Children of the Grave," should have those trousers around their ankles in no time. ***
