Alex Santana, the singer of the Los Angeles-based death metal band BLOOD MONEY, is expecting a baby with his fiancée, actor Jim Carrey's rock musician daughter Jane Carrey. "I am very excited," Jim, 47, said in a statement, according to People magazine. "Jane is going to be a great mom."
Jane, 21, sings for the JANE CARREY BAND, and is the "Liar Liar" star's daughter with his first wife Melissa.
Jim Carrey is said to be a fan of the death metal band CANNIBAL CORPSE, who made a cameo appearance in Carrey's 1994 movie "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective".
According to BLOOD MONEY's official bio, the band's goal is very simple: "Make heavy music and share it with the world. Be it death, thrash, grind, etc. You will hear it in BLOOD MONEY. From PANTERA to SEPULTURA, or DECAPITATED to NAPALM DEATH. You will feel their intensity in BLOOD MONEY. But even though we play with their strengths, we write with our own. A new breed of metal, a stew of genres, a story in every song. Stories that tell of the world we live in, the struggles of power and the belief of expression."
The band adds: "We are a group of four guys from L.A. who love to play metal. A group that writes songs together, sharing riffs and rhythms. And when all is said and done, BLOOD MONEY writes epic songs. Songs to begin an album and songs to end an album. This fact was proven with the 2008 release of 'One Nation Under Hate'. A relentless force of a record, that beckons for the throne of progressive death metal. But more importantly, BLOOD MONEY was born to play live, delivering arguably the most compelling, brutal, and infamous shows in the Los Angeles underground. We play to abolish the norm… We play to cultivate the doubtful… We play to incite riots. We play as one machine."
