Album Notes
Before their transformation to Bloodroot, Johnny Young the band have been creating powerful, driving sounds that borrow from both the heaviness of the '80s and the melodic accessibility of the post-grunge '90s rock. Live, they deliver the goods in a raw and vibrant fashion.

Their second cd, Drone, is an excellent slab of darkly melodic hard rock that bashes together plenty of crunching riffs, a pulsing rhythm section and to-the-point lyrics with a dash of psychedelia to mix things up.

However you care to define it, it's just good damn music that was meant to be enjoyed. The band has released two cds; Shed Your Skin in 1998, and Drone in 2000 as Johnny Young.

During 2001, the band toured frequently playing clubs and colleges between Texas and Boston sharing stages with bands as diverse as Spacehog, Moke, Supafuzz, Agents of Good Roots, Spine, Smartbomb, Punchy, Ropetree, George Devore and many others. This three piece New York City based dynamo is garnering radio support and new fans at an unstoppable rate. The first single from Drone, "Rain" was a southern regional break out on radio. (no payola either!)

The band has released an E.P. and a full length album is expected in early 2003. This will be the first release from Bloodroot since 1997.

Get ready for Bloodroot to overcome your emotions and fill all of your hard rock
Bloodroot, a powerful, groove-laden trio hailing from Brooklyn, NY has come to take the hard music scene by storm. With a bottom end as low as a snake's belly, backed by some killer fretwork and an overall hard rock power punch, this outfit has got the riffs, rhythms and rhymes to take care of all of your heavy business. There's a plethora of influences here, from the grungy (Alice In Chains, BADMOTORFINGER-era Soundgarden) to the metallic (Helmet, Life Of Agony), which helps shape this band into a true rock machine, able to grind out at any given notice, but also displaying depth to go the extra mile. Such is the case in the near seven minute Southwestern tinged rocker "Earth Below", which mixes the ethereal nature of The Doors with the heavier nuances of Stone Temple Pilots. Get ready for Bloodroot to overcome your emotions and fill all of your hard rock needs. www.bloodroot.net
