It´s been quiet in the BLOODRED realm lately, but I´m happy to announce that I have finished writing the music for the next album!
All the demos are done now and it´s safe to say that you´ll get some typical BLOODRED stuff but with some new bits and pieces here and there … We will enter the studio sometime in the summer, so you can expect the release of the album in fall. I´ll keep you posted.
It´s time to move on and so I´m in the middle of writing NEW MUSIC for the NEXT RELEASE! I´m making good progress so far as some of the songs are already finished while others still need to be worked on. After the release of the EP “The Lost Ones” in 2014, this time I´m planning to do a FULL ALBUM which will be released later this year. Expect some typical BLOODRED stuff! That´s it for now, I´ll keep you posted!
Now that the end of the year is coming closer it´s time to look back on what has been the most exciting year in BLOODRED´s history so far.
It all started with the recordings sessions for “THE LOST ONES” at the MASTERSOUND STUDIO with Alex Krull producing and Joris Nijenhuis on the drums. It was such a great experience and I´m still very pleased with the outcome. The EP was released digitally in advance in June and the actual release of the digipack was at the end of August. It is still available as a download on iTunes, Bandcamp, Amazon and many more platforms. You can get the beautiful digipack at this location.
The EP got overwhelmingly great reviews, you can find some of them here and here. Just to quote a few:
I also met or got in touch with so many nice people this year: Alex, Joris and Thorsten at MASTERSOUND, Markus at METALMESSAGE, many great publishers or contributors to Metal magazines, websites etc. all over the world and of course the fans. Thank you all for great talks and inspiration!
But 2014 was just the harbinger of things to come … expect the full BLOODRED blast next year!
Here´s another roundup of reviews and interviews for “The Lost Ones”. The EP was released digitally in June and the official release was on August 29th. It´s available on Bandcamp, iTunes or the Bloodred webstore (Digipak).
Legacy (Germany, issue #93):
“Es gibt klirrende Gitarren, bissige und gleichzeitig frostig-schöne Melodien und aggressive Vocals. […] Und das bringt dann zwei gute Songs. Und das ist viel mehr, als andere auf einer ganzen CD schaffen.”
Theres also an interview in the magazine with a continuation online (read it here).
The EP was recorded at Mastersound Entertainment Studio and produced by renowned producer and german death metal veteran Alexander Krull, guitars and bass were recorded by Thorsten Bauer (Atrocity, Leaves´ Eyes). All drums are played by Joris Nijenhuis (Atrocity, Leaves´ Eyes).
The cover artwork was done by icelandic graphic design addict Valdimar Örn, while the rest of the package was beautifully designed by Stephan Sander.
Of course the EP is also available as digital download on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Bandcamp and many more. You can also stream the songs on Spotify.
I´m proud to announce, that BLOODRED and METAL MESSAGE will work together. With more than 10 years of experience in the music business, Markus Eck – the founder of METAL MESSAGE – is the perfect partner for BLOODRED. Markus will exclusively promote BLOODRED and the latest EP „THE LOST ONES“.
