Finnish melodic death metallers Bloodred Hourglass have released new single ‘Nightmares Are Dreams Too’. This is the third taster of the band’s upcoming album, which promises to be a melodic death metal rollercoaster, due for release later this year via Out Of Line Music.
Guitarist Lauri Silvonen comments about the new song:“‘Nightmares Are Dreams Too’ is a mixture of heavy riffs, clean guitars and beautiful leads that create a wistful but aggressive atmosphere.
This straightforward song also carries a straightforward message: if you lack knowledge and don’t have anything constructive to say, just rather keep your opinions to yourself.
All in all ‘Nightmares Are Dreams Too’ sums up big melodies, heavy grooves and solid words while offering the first glimpse of how Bloodred Hourglass blend metalcore elements to their signature melodeath sound!”
On the inspiration for the song writing on this third single, he continues: “It’s the balance of keeping it simple yet interesting while also bringing forth some fresh elements. Obviously, stupidity of people is a never-ending source too.
“Since we had some line-up changes after the last album Godsend we wanted to do another video highlighting the band. Instead of just a traditional playing video we added some other elements there too!”
Previous album Godsend saw BLOODRED HOURGLASS climb towards the top of the Finnish metal scene, with their signature blend of melodic death and thrash metal. Stay tuned for more details on the band’s upcoming album.
Vocalist Jarkko Koukonen commented: “Lyrically it’s going to be by far the most personal album to date. It’s an introspective trip into loss, lost chances of life and love – all crowned with sadness. You get a lot closer by being also fragile, and the contrast we managed to capture on this record is definitely some next level BRHG.”
“Obviously, we were in a new situation since the song writing responsibility was divided due to member changes after the previous album. Overall, we wanted to create something that’s completely new and fresh for us but also maintain the familiar BRHG sound. Really happy with the results on the final record and it’s safe to say the end result is more than we, and hopefully all of you, even expected,” adds the band about the upcoming album.”
Silvonen concludes: “Musically it’s the most diverse BRHG album we’ve created. It contains our slowest song ever but also the most aggressive headbanger too. It’s filled with sadness and joy, brutality and catchiness – a perfect melodeath rollercoaster just the way we wanted it to be.”
