Horror-themed thrash punk band Blast from Oblivion is proud to premiere their newest single, “Haunted Apparition,” here on HM. Blast from Oblivion is the moniker for solo artist Splatter Guts, and the single comes from their newest album, a sophomore release titled Restrained. (You can jam the debut album in full over at Bandcamp.)

I got in touch with Splatter Guts to talk about the song:

“It screams about someone’s horrific past that still haunts them to insanity. There is nothing left they can do except pray in the middle of this spiritual battle. Musically it is very raw and driving. It speaks for itself.”

Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
