BLOODSOAKED
"RELIGIOUS APOCALYPSE"
COMATOSE MUSIC

BLOODSOAKED is a brutal technical Death Metal band based out of Raleigh, North
Carolina. The lyrical themes include gore and death (my favorite themes). They are signed
to one of the most brutal record labels,
COMATOSE RECORDS. I personally am a fan
of a lot of bands that are signed to this label so it's fair to say I am a fan of this band too!
The mastermind behind the band is a man by the name of Peter Hasselbrack. He does the
vocals, guitar, and the bass on the albums. Unknown if theres a line up for live shows or if
Peter does everything himself when he plays live. The name and logo of his band came
from his distribution that he ran back in the 1990s to early 2000s. The
BLOODSOAKED logo was created by a incredibley talented guy by the name of
Christophe Szpajdel who is famous for doing logos for bands such as
BLOOD RED
THRONE
, DIMMU BORGIR, EMPEROR and FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE. The
band started in 2006, releasing a full length album debut "BRUTALLY BUTCHERED" in
2007, then a follow up "SADISTIC DEEDS...GROTESQUE MEMORIES" in 2009, and
a third album "THE DEATH OF HOPE" 2011, and finally their most recent album
"RELIGIOUS APOCALYPSE" 2014. This CD contains new tracks, live tracks, and the
most unlikely of covers from a Death Metal band. They actually covered a few Hair
Metal bands ( or Glam Metal) whatever you what to call them, it still sounds a little
strange to me! They covered
RATT's "You're In Love" and CINDERELLA's "Shake Me"
on the CD. Listening to the CD from start to finish there lots of twists and turns and even
a few surprises. I didn't know where I was going to end up. In March 2015 at the
Maywood in Raleigh North Carolina he announced that
BLOODSOAKED was going to
disband after that show BUT, later decided to continue on with the band ,thankfully. This
band is a straight up Death Metal band with no frills or bells n whistles which makes this
band so GREAT! In the veins of
SUFFOCATION, CANNIBAL CORPSE and
DEICIDE.
