GORY BLISTER Bassist Injured In Road Accident

Long-running Italian technical death metallers GORY BLISTER have issued the following update:

"Roby Gelly, bass player teaming up with GORY BLISTER and ALLHELLUJA, unfortunately suffered an accident [Monday] night in Milan while driving his motor bike to come back home. During the crash against a car, he broke his femur. [Note: A femur fracture is an injury to the thigh bone.] He is under surgery this morning at San Raffaele hospital (in Milan)... Everything seems to be gone for the better after surgery, but it will take about two months to return to 100%. Due some shows already scheduled, GORY BLISTER will try to replace him temporarily; otherwise the band will perform anyway and unfortunately without a bassist. The band wish [him] all the best for a quick [recovery]."

GORY BLISTER released its latest album, "Graveyard of Angels", in April via Mascot Records. The follow-up to 2006's "Skymorphosis" contains nine tracks that "reach a very technical death metal made with old-school anger," according to the band.

Commented guitarist Raff: "This new record is the natural prosecution of GORY BLISTER's goal to mix old-school aggression, technical skills and progressive music into classic death metal. The sound has acquired a lot more personality; you'll always experience originality both in riffs and lyrics. As for the lyrics, they're written from a point of view inspired by the latest world events. In this concept, fantasy stories usually serve as a metaphor. The lyrics deal with the wickedness in human beings that slowly bring themselves to their own destruction."

Video footage of GORY BLISTER performing the song "The Descent" in Milan in late 2008 can be viewed below.
