BLOODY HAMMERS are a duo that hail from the mountains of Transylvania County, NC. The project and first self-titled release was originally formed as a studio only project with vocalist/songwriter, Anders Manga producing and recording all instruments. Soon Anders decided to take the project from the studio to a real band by recruiting his wife Devallia to play keyboards and other local musicians for live shows.
Through the snowy winter of 2015, Anders began writing again, but this time took a much darker and atmospheric direction. For the first time he added thick Moog sounds along with his normal fuzzed-out guitar, with more atmospheric keys provided by Devallia. They emerged from the winter with Lovely Sort of Death, their darkest album yet.
“Lovely Sort Of Death” will be released on August 5th via Napalm Records and is available for pre-order HERE.
A brand new track has been unveiled as exclusive audio premiere!
Anders Manga states:
“Messalina came about like the best songs usually do, just warming up without thinking too much. I was trying out my new Terror Bass head that Orange Amplification sent me and that bassline just happened while playing around. I thought… “hmm, I like that” and the rest of the song just flowed out.”

“Bloodletting on the Kiss” is the latest music video – have a look at it HERE.

“This album is certainly the darkest album I’ve ever recorded”, states BLOODY HAMMERS mastermind Anders Manga, who stays on the dark path of the nether worlds and opens the gates to a “Lovely Sort Of Death”.
The brand new album “Lovely Sort Of Death” by Dark Occult Rockers BLOODY HAMMERS, will see the light of day on August 5th via Napalm Records.
The band has now unveiled the music video for the track “The Reaper Comes”. Meet the reaper HERE.
Read what the band has to say about their new video:
“Many times a band will release the fastest, most in-your-face track they have as a first single. “Lovely Sort of Death” has some fast tracks, but it is also more versatile than that. I decided to do something different and go with ‘The Reaper Comes’ because it accurately portrays how I was feeling at the time the album was written, while snowed in at the top of a mountain.”
“The video was shot along the Blue Ridge Parkway near Asheville. People kept stopping by while we were shooting, only to be horrified. Eventually we were tired of trying to hide the scythe. We would just smile and wave, and tell them don’t fear the reaper.”
BLOODY HAMMERS fourth effort haunts the listeners with heavy guitar fuzz tones and dark occult heavy tuning in these days. This is the perfect soundtrack for your next favorite horror movie ouija session! Till death do us part!
