3 Inches of Blood Essentials
Canadian metal monsters 3 Inches of Blood have endured countless lineup changes since forming in 1999, but one thing's remained constant: blazing musicianship and ridiculously high-flying songs. Influenced by gods like Manowar and Maiden, the band's take on the New Wave of British Heavy Metal sound features dueling blitzkrieg guitars, galloping beats, and vocal shrieking that can shatter glass. While their lyrics about blood and sorcery are tongue-in-cheek, their playing is no-nonsense. This is bar-brawl music at its finest.
