3 Inches of Blood are out with the music video to their new single ‘Metal Woman’, off the Canadian metal band’s fifth studio album ‘Long Live Heavy Metal’, out now on Century Media Records. Watch it via YouTube below.
3 Inches Of Blood guitarist Shane Clark tells The Runner that the band focus their songwriting on fantasy over reality because they’re not into being a band pushing a message. “There’s bands who have that social or political or even religious agenda that they want to tell people,” he explained. “I’m not knocking it, but it’s not where we’re coming from, not what we’re into.”
The Canadian heavy metal band released their fifth studio album ‘Long Live Heavy Metal’ last month on Century Media Records.
