3 INCHES OF BLOOD, HUNTRESS, THE HOOKERS, NAME

3 Inches of Blood - If you’re the kind of metalhead that reacts to that particular end of the metal spectrum – you know, the one draped in leather and fur, that’s unduly fond of Vikings and loves the first four Manowar albums as much as it doe its own kids – the same as you would if your local served you a pint of horse’s piss instead of beer, 3 INCHES OF BLOOD probably aren’t for you. However, if you look at Rob Halford decked out in leather screaming ‘Painkiller‘ and think it’s the most amazing thing in human history, step this way. The requisite description of 3IOB for new listeners looks like this: straight-up, hyper-manly heavy metal made of big NWOBHM riffs and dueling leads with front man Cam Pipes’ astonishingly high register singing powering over the top. Listen carefully and you’ll catch the occasional break of something totally different – on album number five, this time it’s the country-sounding ‘Chief And The Blade‘, which wouldn’t have been out of place on the O, Brother Where Art Thou soundtrack. Long Live Heavy Metal by 3 INCHES OF BLOOD is bound to get the metal-speaking world making jokes about how incredibly “METAL!” it is. But don’t let that blind you to the fact it’s a collection of songs that get you banging your head, singing like no one’s listening and practicing your best Sign Of The Hammer poses in the mirror.
