With chances to see the hard core stuff available at Gustos in Boise. Or you may just screw the writer with his stupid ideas and get some life instead! So when I started forming my band in 2005 the band name of Bloodsoaked just fell into place.
Last night Club Retro hosted one of the best metal/hardcore shows of the year. It was on a Wednesday night yet that didn’t stop over 600 people making it out to see the show. But have no fear, I have you covered with a play by play of the show.
When you meet a guy at a concert, you already know you have something in common. Taste in music. You have a shared interest and can use that as a topic of conversation to get to know each other better. You can talk about what other bands or singers you like, who else you’ve seen perform, and why you decided to go to this show. You can dance together or sing really badly. This type of venue also give you the chance to see which guys are willing to have fun and how they let their hair down. Plus, there’s always the opportunity to “accidentally” bump into someone and blame it on the crowd. You can use this chance to introduce yourself.
Not to separate, but there wasn’t any reason that we needed to continue to use Saddle Creek. We just didn’t really need a label and now that everything is digital putting out a record is a lot easier than it used to be. We didn’t have a lot of great reasons for doing it or a lot of ambitious plans for the future or anything. It exists so we can put of a side project here o r there or with friends. There is one coming out by our friends called Touch People. I’m hoping to get an update on that soon. I don’t know if the record is mastered and it’s not set in stone if we will release it but that would be cool.
Myspace has been huge is helping bands of all styles promote themselves and get noticed. I think downloading helps bands more than hurting, I would rather people download my music even if illegally than not listen to it at all. If they like it is a good chance they will buy the CD and tell other about it, it can help with work of mouth.
The feedback on the new CD has been great, getting good reviews and the media and more important the fans are really into it. death metal fans can expect 10 songs of pure Death Metal, nothing more, nothing less. Solid and pure death metal for fans of Obituary, Pestilence, Six Feet Under and Malevolent Creation.
That is fantastic, Dirk. I admire all the things you’ve got going on and giving back to the community with the drum lessons on tour and on your website. Thanks for taking the time today. Best of luck with the tour. Enjoy your time in San Antonio, and thank you very much.
Of Gods and Destroyers has music available on I-Tunes, and their band website with streaming audio can be found here. Fans of death metal, grind, and deathcore should check them out.
