Pomona, California thrashers BONDED BY BLOOD will enter the studio next week to begin recording the long-awaited follow-up to their 2008 debut, "Feed The Beast". On February 1, the young thrash disciples will begin their sessions in Phoenix, Arizona at Highland Recorders. They will later migrate to nearby Stealth Sound for additional work. Producing the record will be Ralph Patlan (WHITE WIZZARD, MEGADETH, UFO).
The members of BONDED BY BLOOD cannot wait to show the world how much of a step forward they've made with their new material. Frontman Jose "Aladdin" Barrales states, "The album is a bit more thought out than our prior attempt." Guitarist Alex Lee adds, "this album is a lot more technical and heavier than our previous."
BONDED BY BLOOD's new CD will mark the recording debut of new bassist Jerry Garcia. "I'm really excited to record my debut album with BONDED BY BLOOD," he says. "With Ralph on our side, the outcome will be a heavy, technical speed metal explosion in your ears."
That explosion is exactly what Ralph Patlan is setting out to accomplish in producing the album. No stranger to taking artists to the limits of their potential, he is thrilled to start working with BONDED BY BLOOD. "I've heard the album demos and I'm very excited to start working with them," he says. "These guys are on point and these songs will have major balls to them."
BONDED BY BLOOD's new album is tentatively scheduled for release in the spring via Earache Records.
