Unearthed Recording From Florida Metalcore Pioneers BLOODLET To Be Released

Following the recent proclamation that defunct metalcore pioneers BLOODLET will make a special one-time appearance — reuniting for the A389 X Bash in January — the label also confirmed two special pending releases from the band in 2014.

First up, A389 will release an unreleased BLOODLET demo, recorded in 1994. The track, called "Embrace", was recorded with several other songs prior to the release of the band's debut LP, "Entheogen". A track which ran astray from the others recorded in the same sessions — "Shell" and "Cheribum" appeaews on the band's "Shell" seven-inch single, and then re-appeared on their "Eclectic" singles compilation LP — BLOODLET's early, completely inventive style of ominous, swamp-born metalcore is relived once again in "Embrace". The lost track was discovered by hardcore webzine XStuckInThePastX and shared the masters with A389 Recordings, who will now release an official seven-inch version of the track in January 2014. The "Embrace" seven-inch will tie directly into band's first performance in over ten years, with their one-time reunion at the A389 X Bash the weekend of January 17-18 in Baltimore, Maryland, joining the reunion of INTEGRITY's "Systems Overload" lineup, ALL OUT WAR, INFEST, HAYMAKER, NOISEM, FULL OF HELL, EMPIRE OF RATS and tons more.

In addition, A389 is collaborating with Victory Records on a special reissue of BLOODLET's landmark debut LP, "Enthogen", which Victory initially released in early 1996. The new edition will be released in a deluxe 2xLP in the coming months pending the completion of the remastering sessions, currently going down at Audiosiege.

BLOODLET vocalist Scott Angelacos remains busy with his present bands JUNIOR BRUCE — which is working on the follow-up to its "The Headless King" LP, released in 2012 by A389 — and "Hollow Leg", which just released "Abysmal" on Last Anthem Records.

Further details on the impending "Embrace" seven-inch singl, the 2014 2xLP re-release of "Enthogen" and all other BLOODLET-related actions will be leaked in the coming weeks.
