Earache Records has announced the signing of BONDED BY BLOOD.

Hailing from Los Angeles, this five-piece, with an average age of only 18, is here to show the world how it sees the path of new-school thrash metal. With virtuoso-like guitar playing courtesy of Alex Lee and a blazing drum assault, BONDED BY BLOOD is gearing up to wow metal fans across the globe with a youthful power-packed punch, and they come with enough talent that many well established acts can only dream about.

Formed in 2005, all members are such massive EXODUS fans that the band took their name from the title of the debut classic EXODUS album, though ironically none of the band was even born when that album first hit the racks in 1985.

Musically, BONDED BY BLOOD's influences come from most of the old-school thrash acts (EXODUS, METALLICA, SLAYER, TESTAMENT, etc) but BONDED BY BLOOD add a youthful energy and a fun element as well as their own twist on the two decade old genre. The band focus as fervently on song structure and composition as they do on making every riff, vocal line and drum pattern a memorable, heartfelt shredder.

With a self-released six track EP, "Extinguish the Weak", released barely a few weeks ago in August 2007, BONDED BY BLOOD has taken the thrash underground by storm, resulting in inking a long-term contract with Earache Records.

Vocalist Aladdin has this to say about the signing: "We are thrilled to be part of the Earache family — it's overwhelming!! MUNICIPAL WASTE, MORBID ANGEL, DEICIDE, EVILE and now BONDED BY BLOOD! Next step is taking over the world!"

The debut BONDED BY BLOOD album will be released on Earache early 2008.
