DOOMRIDERS To Release “Grand Blood” In OctoberWednesday, 31st July 2013
Grand Blood from DOOMRIDERS is the follow-up to their highly regarded 2010 album Darkness Comes Alive. Grand Blood was engineered by Kurt Ballou at God City Studios, and features artwork from Thomas Hooper as well as packaging from Ryan Patterson (COLISEUM) and J. Bannon.
According to a press release, “Where Darkness Comes Alive was smooth and heavy in tone, Grand Blood is jagged and hard in its heart. Grand Blood is DOOMRIDERS pushing themselves into wilder sonic territory previously unexplored by the band. In songs like ‘Back Taxes’ and ‘Bad Vibes,’ an angular noise rock influence takes the lead, creating a harsh and charged environment.
Not to fret, the hooks DOOMRIDERS are known for are as sharp as ever though, sinking into songs like the personal ‘Dead Friends’ and melodious and emotional ‘Gone to Hell’ – two songs that impressively showcase Nate Newton’s evolving vocal ability. Meanwhile, monsters ‘Father Midnight,’ ‘New Pyramids’ and ‘Death In Heat’ are DOOMRIDERS at their heaviest and most discordant to date, all complimented by new drummer Q (MAGIC CIRCLE, CLOUDS), whose frantic style powers this genre crossing masterpiece.”
