Bollnäs, Sweden’s Bloodbound had been formed in the summertime of 2004 by kindred metallic spirits Tomas Olsson (business lead acoustic guitar) and Fredrik Bergh (keyboards), both of whom had slice their tooth with several rings over time before 1st joining causes in the short-lived Road Talk. Seeking to make a solid impression from your get-go, the duo confident experienced frontman Urban Breed of dog, previously of Tad Morose, to become listed on Bloodbound’s ranks, after that finished the band’s lineup with drummer Pelle Åkerlind (ex-Morgana LeFay), bassist Johan Sohlberg, and Olsson’s sibling Henrik as tempo guitarist. This quintet documented 2006’s well-received freshman LP, Nosferatu, but their much-vaunted “bloodstream brothers” kinship was unfortunately already dissolved from the launch of 2007’s sophomore Publication of the Deceased, where Michael Bormann stepped in as vocalist and Bergh required over bass responsibilities from your departed Sohlberg. Fortunately, Bloodbound’s initial lineup would reunite for 2009’s Tabula Rasa, and then splinter just as before before the classes for 2011’s Unholy Mix, where another fresh vocalist and bassist combo was launched in Patrik “Pata” Johansson and Anders Broman, respectively. The fist-pumping In the Name of Metallic premiered in 2012, accompanied by Stormborn in 2014 and Battle of Dragons in 2017. Despite all of the staff upheavals, Bloodbound’s music offers remained continuous throughout, by no means straying very definately not a conventional heavy metal foundation with power metallic accouterments.
