Bloodred Hourglass will released their 4th studio album ”Godsend” on 28th June 2019. Currently finalizing the process with the album the band promises to raise the bar of the high quality metal releases this year even higher:
”Godsend is so far the best version of a band called Bloodred Hourglass. This album will modernize our sound and the output on the record will be somewhat fresh and varied compared to previous releases. Expect an album with full of harsh attacking melodic metal!“, states the band.
Godsend was recorded by Juho Räihä (Soundspiral Audio) who is also the man behind the previous releases. This time the album mixing and mastering is done by Henrik Udd (Henrik Udd Recording) who is famous for working previously with bands like Architects and Bring me the Horizon. Godsend will be released through Ranka Kustannus and Out of Line Music throughout the world. The album cover art is designed by Tuomas Koivurinne in cooperation with Miika Saari.
