American doomsters BLOODY HAMMERS have completed work on their sophomore LP titled Spiritual Relics.   The follow up to the North Carolina occult metal band’s critically celebrated, eponymously titled debut, Spiritual Relics will be released worldwide on October 1 via cult label Soulseller Records and boasts ten titanic tracks revolving around ironclad themes of classic horror, stories from the coven and chilling evil.

Produced by towering frontman / bassist Anders Manga, Spiritual Relics builds on the strong wall of sound BLOODY HAMMERS created on last year’s debut, a record that was hailed as “dark magic” by the Boston Phoenix, “occult-leaning” by Decibel, “yesteryear rock that celebrates the sinful in all of us” by Popmatters and “a head-nodding mix of hypnotic stoner doom and Roky Erickson-style psychedelic rock” by Revolver.   Named in homage to the singularly atomic Roky Erickson & The Aliens song of the same name, BLOODY HAMMERS’ hallucinatory heavy music has been called “a psych / hard rock / horror fan’s dream come true.”   In support of Spiritual Relics, BLOODY HAMMERS will hit the tour trail for its first North American and European live dates, kicking the festivities off with a pre-release U.S. trek alongside like-minded acts Ancient VVisdom and The Saint James Society and gigs with Weedeater, Ken Mode and more.
