Epic death/black metallers BLEEDING GODS are set to release their first album Dodekathlon via Nuclear Blast on Jan 12th, 2018.
The band released their first single ‘From Feast To Beast’ with a crushing music video back in November and today, they present their Christmas present to all fans: the second single ‘Tripled Anger’. The band have also released a lyric video to accompany the release of the song, which features the artwork from the new album. Watch the video by Sebastiaan Spijker, here:
Guitarist Ramon Ploeg comments the song: “We are really proud to launch our second single ‘Tripled Anger’ from the new album »Dodekathlon« upon you! ‘Tripled Anger’ is about stealing the cattle of Geryones. Hercules’ trip went to the hot desert and shot an arrow onto the sun. Apollo, God of the Sun, admired him and helped him. He pierced Geryones’ tripled armour suit with one arrow and one shot. He stole the cattle and brought it back to King Eurystheus. This was Hercules’ 10th labour of the series of 12 (more info see below). Sebastiaan did an awesome job making this lyric video, which also contains some artwork of the booklet in it. The motion artwork is created by The Glitch and he did an amazing job to turn the artwork become alive!”
