BLOOD ATONEMENT joins our roster.
We are happy to announce the co-operation with German Speed/Thrash act BLOOD ATONEMENT. Even though as a band they're a newcomer (formed in 2011), the band members aren't new to the scene: three of the musicians - vocalist Volker "Iron Lung" Frerich, guitarist Marko Hoffmann and (now ex-)bassist Christoph Erdmann - are known from the Teutonic HELLHAMMER worshippers, WARHAMMER (a band we've been big fans of since years). And it's mainly the killer deep and gruff voice of "Iron Lung" that sets them apart from many other Speed/Thrash bands, even though on their 2012 demo "Grave of Humanity" he sings in a bit different way than in WARHAMMER. Fans of bands like SODOM, WARHAMMER, CELTIC FROST, HELLHAMMER, APOKALYPTIC RAIDS, SCEPTER, OUTRAGE (Ger.) or TRENCH HELL should definitely check them out!
Volker "Iron Lung" Frerich commented:
"We are very glad to work with Metal On Metal Records, as we fully agree with the attitude of this label. They are focused on the Old School way of metal, just like our band BLOOD ATONEMENT is, too. It feels good to be in the company of bands such as MELIAH RAGE, ARKHAM WITCH or ATTACKER. With the release of our first full-length album "Carsosa" in 2015, you can expect a killer dose of Speed/Thrash Metal played the brutal Old School way!"
BLOOD ATONEMENT's debut album "Carcosa" is planned for mid 2015 and will consist of re-recorded songs from their demo, as well as a few new tracks.
