This Faceless Odyssey EP

by Blood and Thunder

Seattle's burgeoning metal scene has given birth to a new force where the ley lines of dark melody and brutality intersect: Blood and Thunder. Weaving together intricate guitar-craft, ringing, swirling keyboards, bludgeoning bass and drums, and a mix of crack-ice blackened vocals and wolfish death-metal roars, Blood and Thunder create melodic death metal that both crushes and loads your head with barbed hooks that won't come loose after the music ends.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
eattle's burgeoning metal scene has given birth to a new force where the ley lines of dark melody and brutality intersect: Blood and Thunder. Weaving together intricate guitar-craft, ringing, swirling keyboards, bludgeoning bass and drums, and a mix of crack-ice blackened vocals and wolfish death-metal roars, Blood and Thunder create melodic death metal that both crushes and loads your head with barbed hooks that won't come loose after the music ends.


The band had its genesis in 2008 and since then have worked and gigged relentlessly in the Pacific Northwest, developing an arsenal of songs that have been sharpened and polished to a fine, shining edge. Playing their first live show in late 2009, Blood and Thunder have gone on to share the stage with a "who's who" of national and international bands, including Dark Tranquillity, Moonsorrow, Brutal Truth, Eluveitie, Belphegor, Nevermore, Vried, Drown Mary, and A Balance of Power.


The band's debut album, 2011's Dawning of the Ancients, is the product of that long process of songwriting and live performance. At various moments, the songs conjure memories of Children of Bodom, Wintersun, Amon Amarth, and The Black Dahlia Murder, combining tempo dynamics, guitar and keyboard technicality, dark, memorable melodies, and a large dose of venomous aggression. The recordings have a raw and unpretentious sound, but one that doesn't hide the band's impressive songwriting sophistication and advanced instrumental chops.



But Dawning of the Ancients is simply the beginning. Unforeseen setbacks delayed completion of the album, but the silver lining is that while work on the album progressed, Blood and Thunder developed enough new material for a second album -- songs that reflect the band's continued growth toward a sound that will truly be their own, more technical and more polished and yet sacrificing none of the blunt force brutality and melodic feel that are becoming the band's hallmark.



In the Spring of 2012 Blood and Thunder released their latest 2 song demo Choas Unrelenting.With much success and their eyes towards a great future.
