In support of their upcoming, punishing new album, Here Waits Thy Doom, Vancouver’s 3 INCHES OF BLOOD have announced a string of headlining dates before heading out this fall with melodic death metal icons In Flames, and prog metallers Between The Buried and Me and The Faceless. The tour starts September 7 in Seattle, WA and runs through October.
Sirius XM Radio will be debuting the new 3 INCHES OF BLOOD track, “Battles and Brotherhood,” on their Liquid Metal channel (Sirius 27/XM 42) today, July 29, at 7:40PM EST.
3 INCHES OF BLOOD will release Here Waits Thy Doom September 8 on Century Media. The album, which will set the new standard for new heavy metal, was tracked in Seattle’s Sound House Recordings with renowned producer Jack Endino (Soundgarden, High On Fire) and is soon to be hailed as the gospel of all things heavy. For an early taste of the sonic brutality, visit the band’s official MySpace, www.myspace.com/3iob, where the new song, “Call of The Hammer” is streaming NOW.
Born out of a love for pure metal and weaned on a diet of fantasy and mythology, 3 INCHES OF BLOOD have been slaying the infidel for nearly a decade. In that time, they’ve released three albums and splattered the ground with crimson streaks while on tour with such acclaimed acts as Slipknot, Satyricon, The Black Dahlia Murder, Motorhead and Cradle of Filth. These are mighty accomplishments for dedicated warriors from Vancouver, British Columbia, a region that’s not exactly the Camelot of heavy metal. With their last album, Fire Up the Blades, they have surpassed even their own manly exploits, crafting a number of undeniable anthems that crash, rip and roar like a Medieval skirmish.In 2009, 3 INCHES OF BLOOD raises the chalice another notch leaving their definitive mark on the metal genre.
