Based in Fresh Orleans, Blood vessels Red Velvet is really a melodic, jangly adult alternative/folk-rock duo that is greatly affected by R.E.M. and 10,000 Maniacs. The twosome in addition has been set alongside the Treatment, and another impact — either immediate or indirect — may be the Beatles. Having a name like Bloodstream Red Velvet along with a penchant for goth-like Compact disc addresses, some might believe that the Crescent Town residents offer goth rock, commercial music, or alternative metallic — quite simply, something dark and haunted. But Bloodstream Crimson Velvet doesn’t sound some thing like Skinny Pup, Bauhaus, Sisters of Mercy, or Nine In . Nails, as well as the group’s frontman/innovator, Bruno UK Steiner, mementos a vocal design that obviously owes too much to R.E.M. frontman Michael Stipe. Steiner under no circumstances reminds the listener of Trent Reznor or the questionable Marilyn Manson, but he has a lot in keeping with Sheryl Crow and previous 10,000 Maniacs vocalist Natalie Vendor. Bloodstream Crimson Velvet was shaped within the Crescent Town in 1999, when Steiner became a member of pushes with drummer Robert Weathers. Steiner may be the busier of both; furthermore to handling most of Bloodstream Red Velvet’s business lead vocals and carrying out every one of the songwriting, Steiner has electric guitar (both acoustic and electrical), bass, and keyboards for his group. In 2003, Bloodstream Red Velvet agreed upon with the north California-based Delvian label, which released two of their CDs — Blessed One of the Ruins and Romeo’s Bone fragments — concurrently in January 2004.
