Album Notes
"When they ended the
show, the audience wanted to hear more. Bloodshot definitely has a future
in this business."

-Show Review from

Bloodshot was formed in Las Vegas in August 2002. They released their debut cd, Demons, Addictions & Confidence on October 29th, 2002. Their single, "Brothers in Blood" has received airplay on 107.5. Their live show is explosive, aggressive, and captivating. Their website pulls in 50,000 + hits a month and Bloodshot is one of the most downloaded unsigned bands on the internet, having sold over 1,000 copies of their debut album through shear hard work.

With a professional attitude rarely seen locally, the 4 members of Bloodshot have attacked the local hardcore metal scene with a barrage of shows and promotion. Bloodshot is: Mike Hussey - lead vocals; Rob Hussey - guitars, backing vocals; Tim Dever - bass, backing vocals; Joe Latino - drums, backing vocals.

The band's influences are as diverse as their personalities, with everyone from Slayer, Iron Maiden, Faith No More, Cradle of Filth, Cannibal Corpse, Deicide, Godsmack, Morbid Angel, Pantera, Testament, and Motley Crue providing inspiration.

In August of 2003, Bloodshot put their money where their mouth was, bankrolling the Las Vegas Metal Fest on their own dime. The festival featured such acts as Deicide, Monstrosity, Strapping Young Lad and other death metal heavyweights. Even though Bloodshot is not a death metal band, they wowed the crowd on a Saturday night, going on fearlessly before the death metal onslaught began, and winning over hundreds of new fans. Bloodshot was actually described as the "token" crowd pleaser by a reviewer.

The band is currently working on the follow up to Demons, Addictions and Confidence, and expects to release the new disc very soon.

(Self financed)
It's an amazing thing every time you get to realize that heavy metal exists even in some places, where you'd never think it would. The guys here come from Las Vegas, U.S. and it's the first time I get to listen to a band from over there. Hmm...let me start with the easy stuff...Their production is very good, heavy, a bit noisy (on purpose) and generally it is as it should be. Now, before writing this review I spent a long time listening to the songs and try to decide where I should place them in order to give you a clue of their musical direction. Impossible! Their influences start from hard rock/metal and end up to hardcore and some death influences. Weird but true. The vocals are mainly rough and aggressive but there are some songs where you can listen to a classic heavy metal approach. They are powerful, they are heavy, they are aggressive, they are extreme, they have rhythm and groove. Perhaps the closest bands I could think of are WHITE ZOMBIE, CRADLE OF FILTH (especially the last song), SYSTEM OF A DOWN and PANTERA. Check them out if you are into it!

With a really good atmospheric introduction to this album, the build up and tension for it mounts really well. An awesome beginning, would have been happy to hear that go on for a full albums worth of ambient darkness.
The start of "Extremities" is pretty dark and weird souynding, but then soon after a nice groove comes out to play. In the first minute I hear touches of Pantera, Life of Agony, Testament, Alice in Chains, Prong, a combination of full on grungey rock, metal and slow thrash style rhythms, a sort of nu-thrash in a way as there are plenty of the simple nu-metal style riffs but the vocals and drums are more akin to late 80's thrash, and very early metallic grunge.
Pretty solid songs and playing though make it a good listen. There is definitely an element of tough guy hardcore and mosh as well, imagine Merauder, Hatebreed and "Vulgar Display of Power"-era Pantera crossing swords, and it is certainly noticeable during "Brothers in blood".
Some of the album tends to just float on a little too much, I think the album would have worked better as a mini album, half a dozen tracks possibly, but there are some highlights, "Sh*tlist" picks things up again, "Taken away" reminds me a lot of Slipknot in places, but Bloodshot doesn't quite have the impact that the inarguably powerful Slipknot do. "Flatline" is another stand out track though, but overall some of the songs don't quite hit hard enough.
The sound is good though, and if they pushed a little more they could certainly deliver a full force blow.

Bloodshot. For what it’s worth, I thought that Las Vegas’ Bloodshot did a nice job with their CD packaging for Demons, Addictions, & Confidence. I bet your thinking I’ve just laid the groundwork for what will turn out to be scathing review of the album. Nope, I just wanted to comment on the artwork, which comes complete with a charcoal drawing (or whatever the hell it is) of some poor sap with shotgun in mouth and brilliant red blood shooting out the back of his head. How sweet. As far as the music is concerned, I enjoyed the 11 tracks of what is basically metallic hardcore that is more about the groove than any kind of complexity in the arrangements. (I use “hardcore” to describe a feeling, rather than a genre). My impression after the first couple of songs, “Disarray” and “Extremities,” was that the production hurt the delivery, sounding rather thin (mainly the guitars and bass). I enjoyed Mike Hussey’s pissed off vocals, but the production made it sound as if he was singing in a cave. The basic
arrangements had me thinking that more variety would have helped the performance, but I kept catching myself nodding my head and tapping my feet to the mid-tempo chug grooves and the generally violent lyrics. A couple of the tunes could have used a guitar solo or two, but I realize that not everyone is enamoured with the whole solo thing these days. Songs like “Blunt Force Trauma,” “Shitlist,” “Flatline, and “Strength in Numbers” are full of caustic guitar riffs, as well as massive doses of spit, piss, and blood. Bloodshot delivers a hardcore approach that is about in-your-face attitude and relentless aggression, if not musical depth. It satisfied me and had me thinking that another album with a better production and few more musical twists will kick some big time ass. Apparently, these guys also put on one hell of a live show. Somehow, that doesn’t surprise me at all. Check out the band’s official website,, or send e-mail to By: Scott Alisoglu

Hard Beyond Driven

Bloodshot hails from Las Vegas, Nevada and offers a lethal brand of Hardcore/Heavy Metal the gambling capitol of the world has not yet bet on.
Bloodshot attacks with full force as the album grooves heavily in a Pantera kinda way.
Mike Hussey takes control of the Mic, Rob Hussey handles the production, engineering and mixing on Demons, Addictions & Confidence making this an enjoyable listen even if it was his first time mixing and producing.
The track "Extremities" grooves a vicious riff followed by a great chorus. the single "Brothers in blood" spewing like a volcano erupting from the core showing off bloodshot's powerfull guitar work by Greg Elizonda and Tim Dever.
"Taken away" is my favourite track which displays the coolest headbanging chorus. Bloodshot from the sounds of things is doing all the right things at the right time on Demons, Addictions & Confidence. And as their popularity grows so will the band as a unit and in the future. Things are looking up as they roll the dice and hit snake eyes.
And that my friends is no gamble.


kicks ass!
I love you guys!!! I've sent this to all my friends. Tell me when the next show is!!


How Kick ass are these guys?
This is probably the best CD ever, tying for the position of the best with 'Damnation And A Day' by Cradle Of Filth. 'Hell on Earth' is possibly the coolest song I've ever heard, these guys are amazing. If you find anything as good or better (if possible) than this CD tell me.
