October 7: release Enter Venusss videowith Tygo Gernandt

Blaas of Glory is about to release the long awaited single and music video Enter Venusss, starring Dutch movie star Tygo Gernandt. On October the 7th club Hedon in Zwolle sets the stage for an intimate accoustic show by the one and only Heavy Metal Marching Band featuring special guests. Afterwards the select audience will enjoy the world premiere of the music video Enter Venusss. From today the single is downloadable on iTunes and from tonight, 20:30 you can watch the video in HD:


Enter Venusss is a surprising heavy metal marching mash-up of Metallica’s Enter Sandman and Venus by the Dutch legends Shocking Blue. It became an instant festival hit when Blaas of Glory accompanied Metallica on their European Sonisphere tour. Enter Venusss is part of the album Highway to Hell. However, top producer Oscar Holleman (Krezip, My Favourite Scar) signed for the special single remix.

Music video
Enter Venusss is an eerie puppet animation, featuring Dutch star Tygo Gernandt in a live action role as Frankensteinlike Mad Puppeteer, falling in love with his own creation. Ofcourse it won’t take long before Sandman appears... It’ll be easy for diehard BoG-fans to recognize the band and themselves in this mysterious persona.

Top team
The music video is a ‘no budget’ production of outstanding quality, thanks to the enthusiasm and creativity of volunteering super talents from the international art and music scene.
• Director Judy Jacob worked on music videos for The Pixies, Kings Of Leon and Coldplay
• Producer Yasha Young owns the international art network Strychnin Gallery (New York, London, Berlin)
• Puppeteers Anthony Parker and Lisa Crawley from Skeleton Heart have a long list of credits, including creations for Corpse Bride, Hellboy II, 28 Days Later, Saving Private Ryan, and Harry Potter
Dutch artist Daniël van Nes designed and built the amazingly detailed set.
Dutch movie star Tygo Gernandt (Godforsaken, Oorlogswinter) excels as Mad Puppeteer.

Release party
Blaas Of Glory premieres Enter Venusss in its hometown Zwolle, feautering local heroes as Typhoon, Bertolf, Aïrto (3FM’s Serious Talent) and Rico & Sticks. When the dust of this musical mayhem party has settled, the music video will be available on

Nacht van de poëzie
Ever since they started out in 2007, Blaas Of Glory have been on a long march to glory. From Amsterdam to Barcelona, from London to Hamburg, from Vlieland to Finland; they will get the whole world head banging to their metal sound, performed on the glockenspiel and the sousaphone. To help Blaas Of Glory achieve this goal, the band is now sponsored by partners Converse, Yamaha, Adams Musical Instruments, booking agencies Rock In Stock en Totaal Theater and Rough Trade.
