3 Inches Of Blood Announce New Album, Long Live Heavy Metal

I just love 3 Inches Of Blood. I wouldn’t call myself a fan or anything, but I do get stoked when I hear them because they’re just so over the top that it’s just fucking awesome. Every time I hear ‘Deadly Sinner’, I get too into it and sing along in that Halford-esque high falsetto scream. It’s like Manowar without the overt homoeroticism; I’m talking beers, beards, and heavy metal songs ABOUT heavy metal. That’s something I can get behind.

Maybe there’s a chance they’ll make a full-blown fan of me yet with their new album Long Live Heavy Metal, which is due out March 27th on Century Media Records. Here’s what the fittingly named Cam Pipes had to say about the new record:

“When a band is releasing a new record, they often speak about it being their most important work or best album to date.  Regardless of how clichéd either statement may sound, I think we would say both apply to this album. All of us have a special feeling about this one.  We’re more committed than ever to the cause of real, honest, no bullshit heavy metal.  No trends, no fucking around!”

Starting in late March, 3IOB will be embarking on The Metal Alliance Tour alongside Devildriver, The Faceless, Dying Fetus, Job For A Cowboy, Impending Doom, and Wretched. Dates for that can be found after the jump.
