Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
We got together in the summer of 2005 under duress. Hassled and pestered for about two years before hand, by our original drummer Kevin volatile. Finally gave in to his harangued bedevilling on a peculiar weekend. It was summer, but oddly grey for that time of year. There was a massive fire near the studio, so for a quarter mile I drove throat thick blanket of choking chemical fire clouds.
Then the coup' de grace, as I emerged on the other side, a murder of displaced crows, a good thousand, led the rest of the way. Shrieking and cawing menacingly, in a panic I suppose because their nesting site had just met an apocalypse.
I was grinning like an idiot ear to ear.
What a fantastic day.
Vinnie's bulldozers bass and Andrew Russell's vocals were just perfect to me. Ironically, Kevin volatile, as much as it was he that wanted this, could barely hang on.
We recorded our first album with him and he was gone.
How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music?
It lays somewhere in death metal and thrash. Speed metal, touches of grind here and there . Even a bit of traditional NWOBHM an progressive is used when needed.
Really, this music has been around for so long, and the early influences are vast, a bit of everything is going to make it into the writing someway.
Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums?
If they were into any of our past groups, witches hammer, blasphemy, infernal majesty, disciples of power,aggression, then it might be interesting to have in the collection for context and complete works. If you just enjoy metal, or music in general, we don't adhere to any one genre. Ours is a collection of all of our influences and inspiration pressed into the fabric and complexion of our art.
What have you released so far and how were your releases received by the public/media?
3 full length albums, a 5 song EP. A collection of our favourite songs on a compilation titled coven.a demo and currently finishing the final touches on our last few numbers for the next album , due in 2017.
Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
Yes, it's gone on well. Highlights being our South American tour and our European tour. Of course being approached personally by groups like goatwhore, got guts and hate eternal to perform with them when they come to our city is a really big gesture also.
What should labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
Tyrants Blood is dedicated to our craft and our lifestyle in a way that is felt by our audience and our peers. We perform in a way that even our enemies ( if we have any)would surely know our quality
What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
Record our new fresh cuts, tour. Write another album, perhaps live album with a few new tracks also.
