Louis-Paul Chiasson and Josh Stevenson of Metal Mouth Media conducted an interview with the London, Ontario, Canada-based metallers BAPTIZED IN BLOOD when the band played in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada on May 21. You can now watch the chat below.
BAPTIZED IN BLOOD released its self-titled, debut full-length for Roadrunner via digital retailers nationally on October 19, 2010. The group has already turned the discerning head of a metal icon, MEGADETH's Dave Mustaine, who was so impressed that he has taken on the role of co-manager for the London, Ontario-based band, alongside Mark Adelman. Additionally, Mike D'Antonio of Dark Icon Design, who also serves as the bassist for KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, designed the album artwork.
While BAPTIZED IN BLOOD may have friends in high places, the band doesn't rely on those associations; the five-piece delivers the goods with their bottom heavy, unrelenting metallic assault. The group is a classic Roadrunner signing that remains true the label's long-standing history as the standard bearer of the best in hard rock and metal.
BAPTIZED IN BLOOD is influenced by Gothenburg metal, glam and everything in between, as long as it's distorted! Their music is equally anthemic and groovy, without sacrificing one ounce of brutality. They've toured with U.S. with FEAR FACTORY and with SHADOWS FALL and HATEBREED in their native Canada. The band was also asked to join an already stellar lineup for the 2010 installment of the Heavy MTL festival in Montreal, Quebec Canada, sharing the stage with the likes of MEGADETH, ROB ZOMBIE, SLAYER, LAMB OF GOD and MASTODON, to name just a few, performing in front of 15,000 fans.
