BLEEDING GODS Release Dodekathlon Track-By-Track Video #3; Album Out Now
January 12, 2018, a year ago
Dutch epic death/black metallers Bleeding Gods released their new album, Dodekathlon, today via Nuclear Blast. The band have released a third track-by-track video. Find all three track-by-track clips below. Physical copies of Dodekathlon can be ordered here.
The album title Dodekathlon is referring to the Greek myth of the twelve labours of Hercules, the greatest of the ancient Greek heroes.´Driven mad by Hera (Queen of the Gods), Hercules slew his son, daughter and wife Megara. After recovering his sanity, Hercules deeply regretted his actions. He was purified by king Thespius, then traveled to Delphi to inquire how he could atone for his actions. Pythia, the oracle of Delphi, advised him to go to Tiryns and to serve his cousin king Eurystheus for twelve years, performing whatever labors Eurystheus might set him. In return, he would be rewarded with immortality. During these twelve years, Hercules is sent to perform twelve difficult labors, which has resulted in twelve album tracks: Every labor is a track, so the complete album tells the whole ancient story.
The album was recorded at Pitch Note Productions and Hal 5 Studio; mixed and mastered at Soundlodge Studio. The cover artwork was created by Dimitris Tzortzis from Immensa Artis.
