“The soundtrack to your post-sludge vision quest”
- Loudwire -

“Heavy and melodic, intoxicating and infectious, MOTANKA’s unique hybrid of metal and folk music is guaranteed to be one of 2019’s most memorable debuts.”
- Metal Sucks -
Ukrainian Wacken Metal Battle 2018 winners MOTANKA release a new video for the second single “Oy ty moya Zemle” (Ukrainian for “Here you are my land”) from their upcoming self-titled debut album.

MOTANKA will release their debut album Motanka on June 7th via Napalm Records. Influenced by traditional Ukrainian folk music, metal tunes and modern electronica, the band creates a very unique mix that the band refers to as Mystic Metal. MOTANKA managed to capture the trance-like magic of their live shows on their debut, which leaves each and every stereotype behind and hypnotizes with heavy ethno soundscapes.

MOTANKA on “Oy ty moya Zemle”:
“This is a song about Motherland, about boundless Sky, native Land, joyful Sun and dear Mom. Wherever you are, you will be a part of the land on which you were born and grew up. And it will stay forever, this is the power of mother Earth which cherishes us on her hands.”

The Ukrainian lyrics in English:
Oy ty moya Zemle – Here you are my land
Here you are my land
Here you are my native
Here you are my mother
Here you are my beloved
You are forever
Here you are my river
Here you are my sky
Here you are my sun
You are my happiness
MOTANKA about their debut LP:
“For the album we recorded ancient instruments: dulcimer, ocarina and throat singing, combined with modern technologies, new instruments and analog sound. This album is like our child, it grew, it learned and became stronger and stronger. Every piece of the album is saturated with the mystical nature of Ukraine. We wrote most of the songs in our hometown Lutsk - the mystical center of Ukraine. The power of the region remained and still is the same for ages. We have prepared the album for many years and are very excited to finally present it via Napalm Records.”

BLOODY HAMMERS – Release Dark Official Video For “From Beyond The Grave”

New Album The Summoning Out On June 28th!

Pre-Order HERE!

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 is 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.
Anders Manga on the video and the song:
“The video is obviously a homage to F.W. Murnau and his early horror work in the silent film era. We had a great time making the video. The song, in a horror rock way, is a narrative from the perspective of a ghost who wants to return to his love on earth. I have so many favorites from the new album, but this is one of those straight forward hard rock tracks that I hope to see people blasting by the pool this summer…  while covered in goth strength sunblock of course.”
Watch “From Beyond The Grave” HERE:
BLOODY HAMMERS deliver their fifth studio album entitled The Summoning on June 26th 2019 via Napalm Records!
The U.S. duo has prepared a wonderfully creepy horror musical experience that pays homage to classic flicks such as Let Sleeping Corpses Lie (1974) and Now The Screaming Starts (1973) by creating a dark BLOODY HAMMERS story around the movie titles. The band’s idea of a soundtrack for your favorite video nasties holds some surprises on their upcoming record.
