BAND Bombs Of Hades
ALBUM PHANTOM BELL (EP)
LABEL BLACK LODGE
OUT April 17th, 2020
OUR RATING 82/100
Formed in 2002 by Jonas Stålhammar and Anders Ekman as an old school Death Metal, over time it grew into a band with a a regular line up featuring Magnus Forsberg and PO Söderback.
Since then 3 more full-length albums and countless ep's and splits followed and BOMBS OF HADES have continued to evolve their music into a more Progressive and Doomy style without really losing it's Death Metal and Crust roots.
Early 2016 right after "Death Mask Replica” was released to critical acclaim original bass player Ekman left the band to spend more time with his family.
The logical replacement was Roger Iderman who had already filled in for Ekman during 2015.
Now is ready this new Ep, entitled PHANTOM BELL, out on Black Lodge on April 17th.
Four brilliant songs since the title track, opened by an instrumental intro; vocals scratch throughout an hard carpet sound, enriched by a classic and inspired solo.
The sound of BRIDGE OF SIGHS is dusty, really old-school, while LUNGS is more lilting and embracing, a bit psych.
More doom last KAMIKAZE, progressive at times, with a great structure which grows second after second.
