Extreme metal project BLOOD REVOLT, featuring the vocals of singer extraordinaire Alan "Nemtheanga" Averill of PRIMORDIAL, along with the whirlwind drumming of J. Read (REVENGE, CONQUEROR, AXIS OF ADVANCE) and the string attack of C. Ross (AXIS OF ADVANCE), has completed work on its debut album.
In what will be presented as one of the coldest, confrontational, uneasy, most-intimidating and challenging extreme metal albums that will corrupt people's ears this year, the BLOOD REVOLT debut album (which goes under the moniker "Indoctrine") utilizes tactics from all forms of extreme metal and collectively draws upon the members combined experience of over 30 releases in the metal underground.
Unlike any metal album being presented today, "Indoctrine" amalgamates the elements each band member have defined for themselves in their other respective creative outlets. The familiar soaring and distinct mighty vocal approach that Nemtheanga utilizes in PRIMORDIAL is ever present in BLOOD REVOLT, his vocals countering with the massive, chaotic, and tactically constructed whirlwind rhythm section provided by J. Read and C. Ross, an intriguing combination that can cause disorder and unease amongst the listener. But it's such a volatile amalgamation that is set to challenge and confront all listener expectations. Without any kind of reliance on any sort of digital trickery, triggered effects, or studio enhancing methods employed to create such a raw, primal and ultimately vicious and unforgiving production and sound, "Indoctrine" will manifest itself as an uncompromising attack on people's pre-conceptions of what so-called "extreme metal" should encompass.
Thematically, "Indoctrine" takes a glimpse into one man's descent into madness and untimely vengeance. An attack on the system and a social commentary where salvation is found from the barrel of a gun, "Indoctrine" is like the lone wolf that calmly waits to attack and becomes a statement of intent that there is a war coming.
Delving further within the concept of BLOOD REVOLT, Nemtheanga states, "In an age of compromise BLOOD REVOLT is genuine rebellion. Pushing the boundaries of what is accepted in 'extreme' metal, BLOOD REVOLT is metal with teeth, like it should be. Genuine violence and aggression mixed with the kind of very real and very dark subject matter that would make other bands heads spin. No cartoon imagery or fantastical pseudo religious hocus pocus, this is the sniper filing down the pin before picking off innocents, this is the suicide bombers sweaty greasy hand on the ignition, dead bodies piled in the politics of the mass grave. Unforgiving and unrelenting elitism…"
