BLOOD ISLAND RAIDERS: Debut CD To Feature Guest Appearance By Ex-CARCASS Guitarist

London-based metallers BLOOD ISLAND RAIDERS have announced the permanent replacement of bassist Seamus O'Hooligan by ex-AKERCOCKE four-stringer Peter Theobalds. The RAIDERS recently split amicably with O'Hooligan who is going on to pursue his other hardcore/punk interests. Theobalds separated from AKERCOCKE after 10 years with the intention of trying his hand at something different.

BLOOD ISLAND RAIDERS' self-titled debut album is due this spring via Invada Records. The CD features a guest appearance by former CARCASS/current FIREBIRD guitarist Bil Steer.
