Wise Blood Records
Last year, Wise Blood Records reissued the out of print "Malignancy" EP from skull-splitting Chicago thrashers BLOODLETTER. In July their blood bond strengthens with the impending release of BLOODLETTER’s devilish new album, "A Different Kind of Hell".
BLOODLETTER has sharpened their riffs across a decade of blazing EPs and two full-length records. "A Different Kind of Hell" is a scorching thrashterpiece with the band’s most lethal songs yet. Blackened speed. Epic harmonized leads. BLOODLETTER forges distinctly melodic thrash metal with solos hotter than a burning chvrch.
"We wanted to take our sound further, make things more epic and adventurous, but keep the core elements of our sound,” shares vocalist/guitarist Pete Carparelli. “We decided to make this a concept record too which helped give the songs a more focused sound."
While the band’s songwriting skills ascend, their lyrics plunge into a nether realm of nightmares. On past records, BLOODLETTER confronted personal terrors. But in "A Different Kind of Hell" they slash their way past supernatural horrors with razor-edged riffage.
"The album is based on the journey of a lone adventurer, who eventually falls victim to a malevolent force,” Carparelli describes. “Each song relives a part of their nightmare and their descent into Hell."
"Hell isn’t just a place,” he adds, “it’s a nightmare we all end up living. Our greatest fears can ake any form and drive us mad. The story told on this record drives home the idea that our interpretation of Hell is different, but no less terrifying than anything we could all imagine."
Recorded and Mixed by Peter Carparelli & Bloodletter at Haunted Hill Recordings. Mastered by Matt Engstrom of Burn the Furniture Studios. Album Art by Andre Trindade.
