We talk to @BloodyHammers Anders Manga about ‘Under Satan’s Sun’ and #DownloadFest

Anders Manga of Bloody Hammers“Southern Gothic Fuzz from Transylvania County” is how they describe themselves and I got to talk with Anders Manga of Bloody Hammers about it. 

Our conversation took place shortly after it was announced they’d be playing Download Festival 2014. We talked about the band’s line-up, musical influences, an invitation from Phil Anselmo to play at his festival and the fact that they’ll soon be bringing their unique brand of Goth Rock to European shores soon.

This all coincides with the release of their upcoming album ‘Under Satan’s Sun’ which follows once more the dark paths populated by sinister characters and spectral apparitions. Dark Occult Rock with a pinch of H.P. Lovecraft and Ray Bradbury is the main attraction of the show, when the master of ceremonies Anders Manga opens the gates to the nether world.”Under Satan’s Sun” is a multilayered album that resembles a classic horror flick from the 70s. An album filled with charm, big refrains and a classy atmosphere.

Bloody Hammers have just released a new video which has a bit of a background story to it. It’s based upon a true event which happened in the county many years ago, involving a husband and wife who were on the run from the authorities. Anders talks us through the story, a story which has become part of local folklore.

We’ll be playing some more Bloody Hammers on Thursday night’s show, so make sure you tune in on 15th May – 7pm (UK time) / 2pm EDT.
