On October 13th, Italian Alternative Rockers HOT SUNDAY BLOOD released their stunning new album “New Omega”, via Mervilton Records! Now the band has unleashed a new lyric video for “Salvation (Omega into Flesh)”. Stream it here:
Also check out “Souleater”, the first single taken from “New Omega”:
The album concept follows a spirituality research through carnal suffering that brings to the idea to compose a four-parts suite (Salvation) about Jesus Christ. Not from a religious point of view, but mostly related to a concept of the human pain of a man forsaken and sacrificed by his own father’s will.

“New Omega”, recorded and mixed at Gramarossa Studio Recording, has been conceived in 2016 and was released on October 13th, 2017. This second album, like the previous one, is under American label Mervilton Records, and reveals a growth and maturation on HSB’s sound. The grunge oriented influences of the first album evolved in a heavy rock, prog rock and new wave cocktail. The groundwork remain alternative rock but with a strong flavor from ’70s to 2000 music.
About the coverart concept the band stated:
“Hot Sunday Blood’s New Omega cover was conceived by the whole group. The Omega symbol, formed by two bodies, is the main theme of the album. Omega is a mystic symbol that stands for Jesus Christ and also a representation of an end, as for conclusion of a spiritual or carnal path. In this case it means the corporal death in order to reach a spiritual elevation; a strong will to leave mortal remains to be free to reach a higher dimension. The four-parts suite Salvation talks about it. Jesus Christ, considered as a human being, is the protagonist. He’s been left alone in his own corporal essence to be reeducated by his Father; all this happens through suffering and pain that all humans have to feel in their own life. The aseptic background of the picture represents the spiritual mood and the two half-naked bodies symbolize carnality.”
