In the band’s own words, “’The Velvet (Mellow Version)’ is something spontaneous we came up with one day when we were recording the Rotten Romance album. We always felt strongly about the song, and this version just gave it a breath of fresh air, especially because it’s quite different from anything else we’ve done before with all the synths and electronics. As we’re now going through changes and are currently working on the next album, we thought this was the perfect time to release the song and remind people about the band.”
“ROTTEN ROMANCE,” their third album, showcases Bloody Heels’ evolution from their Frontiers debut, “IGNITE THE SKY” (2020). While they still pay homage to the great ’80s Hard Rock scene, the new album takes a stylistic leap that is both unexpected and welcoming. These talented musicians refuse to stay stagnant in their musical approach, proving that innovation within a genre is always possible with determination.

The album pleases fans of their previous work, incorporating elements of Heavy Metal while adding touches of Progressive Rock, Gothic Metal, and Modern Rock to the mix with spectacular results. Vocalist Vicky White’s whiskey-soaked vocals shine, and the outstanding talents of guitarist Harry Rivers, bassist Gunn Everett, and drummer Gus Hawk have reached new heights. Intense, driving parts blend seamlessly with atmospheric, sometimes dark breakdowns, creating a rhythm that offers a delightful variety.
Bloody Heels might have just set the blueprint for how bands paying respect to ’80s Hard Rock and Metal can push the genre into new, exciting, and inventive territory. Time will tell, but with “ROTTEN ROMANCE,” these Latvian upstarts have thrown down a gauntlet for their peers to attempt to match.
Formed in 2012 in Riga, Latvia, Bloody Heels quickly made a name for themselves with the EP “SUMMER NIGHTS” (2014) and their studio albums “THROUGH MYSTERY” (2017) and “IGNITE THE SKY” (2020). They’ve rocked stages all across Europe, leaving their mark in countries like Sweden, Finland, Norway, Germany, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Poland, Netherlands, Belgium, and the Baltic States.
