BLOODSIMPLE Guitarist: 'I Think We Might Have Reinvented The Breakdown'

BLOODSIMPLE guitarist Mike Kennedy (ex-VISION OF DISORDER) has issued the following update:

"Well....we're off. We started pre-production [for the second BLOODSIMPLE album] at the Machine Shop [studio owned by producer Machine] yesterday and things are going smoothly. We have a lot of interesting material to weed through. I can say that this will not be your 'run-of-the-mill metal record.' We are frenetically trying to provide a unique album, amidst all the declining originality in heavy music, for ourselves and for our fans. That being said... there are always lots of ups and downs in the writing process. For the downs there's coffee and for the ups there's beer (etc.)... Fortunately, I'm adhering to a pretty strict drug and alcohol regimen to keep my mind limber. And yes...sadly we've parted ways with our drummer Chris [Hamilton] and we wish him the best. We've been jamming with several friends/drummers (one of them B. Cohen from VOD) and it's been killer so far. Some of these songs are just brutal... I think we might have reinvented the breakdown."

BLOODSIMPLE features in its ranks former members of VISION OF DISORDER and MEDICATION. The group's debut album, "A Cruel World", was released in March 2005 on MUDVAYNE singer Chad Gray's Bullygoat label imprint (via Warner Bros.). The CD was recorded in Vancouver B.C. with producer Garth Richardson, who has previously worked with RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, MUDVAYNE, SLIPKNOT and CHEVELLE. The album was mixed by Mike Fraser (HATEBREED).
