Offstage TV conducted an interview with vocalist Cam Pipes of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada-based metallers 3 INCHES OF BLOOD at Metal Invasion 2012 on October 13 at Messehalle in Straubing, Germany. You can now watch the chat below.The official lyric video for the song "Storming Juno" from 3 INCHES OF BLOOD can be seen below. The track comes off the band's new album, "Long Live Heavy Metal", which was released on March 27 via Century Media Records. Pipes explains how the song is a tribute anthem: "'Storming Juno' is a tribute to the soldiers of the Canadian armed forces that got the first foothold for the allies on D-Day during World War II. Every November 11th, we remember all who served, some who made the ultimate sacrifice, in service to their country. Releasing this lyric video is our way of acknowledging those who served our country and how proud we are of the significant contribution Canada had in fighting tyranny all those years ago." For "Long Live Heavy Metal", 3 INCHES OF BLOOD reunited with producer and engineer Terry "Sho" Murray (CITY OF FIRE, EXHIBITIONISTS), who worked with the band on their seven-inch single, "Anthems For The Victorious".
3 INCHES OF BLOOD teamed up with Kim Thiessen to perfect their artistic vision for the album, which was released as a digipack and when opened, lays out similar to that of a book. 3 INCHES OF BLOOD earlier in the year recruited Byron Stroud (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, FEAR FACTORY) as its new bassist. Stroud and 3 INCHES OF BLOOD have been working together on a variety of things, and Stroud is beyond pleased to shift his involvement to a creative level. Interview:
