Based on longtime friendship, love for old-school death metal, and "a change of scenery," members of VOLBEAT, MNEMIC, HATESPHERE, ILLDISPOSED and RAUNCHY have teamed up in a brand new band entitled BLOOD EAGLE. The group's name — which represents the method of torture and execution in Nordic mythology, performed by cutting the ribs of the victim by the spine, breaking the ribs so they resembled blood-stained wings — was chosen due to the members' Scandinavian roots,.
BLOOD EAGLE's first music was recorded with longtime friend and producer Tue Madsen (THE HAUNTED, BEHEMOTH, DARK TRANQUILLITY) at the Antfarm Studios in Aarhus, Denmark and the very first song, "Death Sub Zero", can be heard at the band's Facebook page.
BLOOD EAGLE will make its live debut on Friday, November 7 at the Aalborg Metal Festival alongisde AT THE GATES, NAPALM DEATH, SOILWORK and many more.
