Main man and guitarist Ramon Ploeg comments on the song and the music video, directed bySebastiaan Spijker: “The track is about catching the Erymanthian Boar and bring it back alive to King Eurystheus. This was Hercules’ 4th labor of the series of 12 episodes concerning his penance for slaying his son, daughter and wife Megara (more info see below). Sebastiaan did an awesome job directing the video, which only shows some band shots. It is a real joy to work with him and he has a good and fast communication, which we like. We hope you enjoy the video as much as we do!”

The band was founded in 2012 when guitarist Ramon Ploeg started to write an album after he had left the Dutch death metal band HOUWITSER. In 2013, BLEEDING GODS recorded their 4-track promo entitled »Blood Symphony«. The lyrical theme was about ancient gods and history like the Mayans, ancient Egypt and Greek gods. In 2014, BLEEDING GODS signed for their debut album Shepherd Of Souls with Punishment 18 Records and got worldwide awesome reviews, even today!
One year later, the turning point was there: New line up, new songs, new concept, new album!BLEEDING GODS renewed their line up and are now stronger than ever! After their debut Shepherd Of Souls, the band knows exactly which band they want to be and consequently Ramon Ploeg (Guitars),Mark Huisman (Vocals), Rutger Van Noordenburg (Guitars), Gea Mulder (Bass & Backing Vocals) andDaan Klemann (Drums) created a brand-new concept. Let’s get ready for Dodekathlon!
