Reviews for “The Lost Ones” (Part 1)

Here are some reviews for “The Lost Ones”. The EP was released digitally in June and the official release was on August 29th. It is available on Bandcamp, iTunes or the Bloodred webstore (Digipak).

Metal Mellowdee: “This is blackened death metal in all its tumultuous glory.”

A Different Shade Of Black Metalzine: “Bloodred are a very great sounding melodic blackened death metal project and if you are fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep.” (8/10)

Inside The Coffin: “The fierce music, best compared to a band like EMPEROR, just screams for a full length release. I can only hope that this EP is nothing more than a small taste of the great things to come!”

Apochs Metal Review: 7.5/10 Points

Interview with Blackened Horde

I recently did an interview with Blackened Horde about the band and the new EP “The Lost Ones”. This is an excerpt, read the full interview here:

 Summon: How did the band get started?

Ron: Bloodred is a one-man-project so it’s hard to tell when it all started. I had played in bands for several years but over the time it became clear, that my musical direction was changing to a more extreme sound and the other band members at the time didn’t want to follow. So I started writing music just for me and I think it was 2009 when I first recorded a song under the name of Bloodred.

Summon: Tell me about some the songs on the latest CD?

Ron: The first song is the “The Lost Ones” and this one is a more mid tempo song with a certain Thrash feel to it, although it starts with a really fast part. I think this song is a good introduction into the music of Bloodred since it has speed, melody and groove. The lyrics are based on a poem by Samuel Bamford. The second song is called “Spirits Of The Dead”. The lyrics are from a poem by E.A. Poe and this song shows the Black Metal side of Bloodred. It was fascinating to watch Joris playing all this ultra fast stuff in the studio. It’s unbelievable how hard he hits the snare drum even at high speed.

The Lost Ones” was released on June 20th 2014 and is available at Bandcamp, iTunes and many more music services.

The EP was produced by Alexander Krull at his Mastersound Entertainment Studio. All drums are played by Joris Nijenhuis (Atrocity, Leaves´ Eyes).

“The Lost Ones” is here!

Finally the day has come to release “The Lost Ones“! This is the biggest day in Bloodred-history up to date …

The EP features the songs “The Lost Ones” and “Spirits Of The Dead“. While the former is a more mid-tempo song with a certain Thrash feel to it, the latter is a full on blast beat monster. The drums on both songs were played by Joris Nijenhuis (AtrocityLeaves´ Eyes) who did a tremendous job in lifting the songs to the next level with his playing!

The record was produced, mixed and mastered by Alexander Krull (Atrocity, Leaves´ Eyes) and recorded in his Mastersound Entertainment studio in December 2013 and March 2014.

You can listen to the songs in the player below. The EP is available worldwide on various platforms including iTunes, Amazon, Google, Spotify and our Bandcamp page.
