Bloody Hammers - Launch New Song & Video

The Transylvania County based duo Bloody Hammers release the second official video from their upcoming album The Summoning. "From Beyond The Grave" transports the dark and sinister feeling that only Bloody Hammers can summon in 2019. The wonderfully creepy horror mix of 80s hard rock, gothic, doom and epic metal riffs are wonderfully illustrated in the new video with a silent film era twist. The video was once more produced by the band itself in the Bloody Hammers Film Studios.

Shores Of Null

Shores Of Null are a Rome-based metal band formed in 2013 waving the flag of sorrow in the now vibrant Doom metal scene.

Their music is a wistful-yet-powerful cascade of riffs, overwhelmingly heavy and soothing at the same time, trading off between gothic-doom vibes and blackened aggression, with epic melancholy-ridden vocal patterns.
