My HeadBangers welcome one of Finland’s Hottest bands with great growl vocals Bloodred Hourglass, aka BRHG.  Let’s hear a song, I’m sure most of you have been hearing them already but, they’re just perkele good.  

“VALKYRIE”

This song is 3 years old, but it’s still one of my favorites.

Now let’s meet the guys:

“Six Feet Savior”

I love this song too.  Well there’s really no song that I do not like of BRHG.  Listen to those growl vocals, paska, you know I’m all about the growl vocals, and listen to the instruments, it all melds together with a hard, rough, slam it up in your face sound.  Yes and I love it and so do you.  Who doesn’t like some melodic death metal, yeah I didn’t think so my headbangers.

  Now a little bio on this guys:

BRHG is a melodic death/thrash metal band from Mikkeli, Finland.  Some say death some say thrash, so you will have to judge for yourself.  This was taken off their web site, “Inspired mainly by metal sound, but never disregarding the influences from various other musical genres.”  So like I said it’s up to the individual to decide.  To me I’ll go with melodic death metal.

They are known for their great live performances.  The band’s themes are focused on the individual’s experience of everyday life, as well as environmental issues.

The first full-length album “Lifebound” was released in 2012, in 2015 their second album “Where the Oceans Burn” was released.  In January 2017,  BRHG finished the recordings of their third album  “Heal” which was released in Finland in October 2017, claiming #13 on the official Finnish album chart.  Their new album “Godsend” is out now, so get it. 

“The Unfinished Story”

Like I said I cannot find one song I do not like, even though I’m sitting here with a cold and coughing my ass off, I still hear this music speak to me.

“Ask and You Shall Receive”

GD listen to Jarkko K’s growl vocals, I kid you not I could listen to him for hours, but, also listen to the words and what these guys are saying.  I know it’s hard to concentrate on the words when you have all this metal in your face, so listen to it 3 or 4 times till its crawling all over you, then simmer down and listen to the words.  There’s alot going on with these guys and I look forward to hopefully meeting them someday, as they are not to far away.  In the meantime they have some upcoming gigs and I’ve listed them below, you can get more details on their FACEBOOK page.  Try to catch them, you’ll love it.

Well my Headbangers that’s it for this week.  Join me next week for another band and another song, in the meantime, yeah you know it’s coming, don’t stand to close to the fire if you can’t handle the burn……..
