Bloodred Hourglass Deliver the Perfect Fix of Scandinavian Melo-death-doom
My soul will never tire of melo-doom, or melo-death-doom, or whatever you want to call the kind of music that bands like Insomnium, Swallow the Sun, Daylight Dies, Mors Principium Est and Omnium Gatherum have been trafficking in for years. It just hits that SPOT for me, ya know?
So while Finland’s Bloodred Hourglass haven’t reinvented the wheel, they’ve sure produced a damn fine one. “The Unfinished Story,” their latest single, follows “Waves of Black,” released last month, and both deliver every bit of that simultaneously melancholy and uplifting fix that fires up the best and the worst inside of me. Watch the video for the former below as you curl up into a ball, cry and pump a triumphant fist into the air at the exact same time.
Bloodred Hourglass’s new album Godsend comes out June 28th via Out Of Line Music; pre-order here.
