Peter - Bloodsoaked

One-Man Band Forum 

I've been doing Bloodsoaked since 2005 in some form or another and have had a lot of success doing it as a One-Man Band.  I receive a good amount of emails or messages on Facebook asking questions regarding starting a One-Man Band, playing live, and more.  So I figured I would start a forum dedicated to One-Man Band discussions.

Peter - Bloodosaked

Biggest Bloodsoaked Fan 

Here's Petia Ivanova showing her support for Bloodsoaked. She is without a doubt the biggest Bloodsoaked fan. She traveled all the way from Bulgaria to Poland (plane, train and taxi) just to see Bloodsoaked perform live in April 2014. Thank you Petia for all the support.

Cool review from Ave Noctum 

Well this is a treat! North Carolina’s Bloodsoaked have been kicking around playing some awesome technical death metal since 2006. They are a project helmed by Peter Hasselbrack, ably assisted on this release by Joseph Darling on 2nd guitar and. This 9 track album is their 5th release and consists of 3 new tracks, 2 covers (more on them in a minute) and 4 live cuts.

Anyone who’s read my ramblings before will know that I hate technicality for the sake of it. Showing off does not = brutality nor does it necessarily make for good songs. This is where Bloodsoaked triumph by concentrating on ‘purely old school, no frills, straight forward, skull crushing Death Metal in the most raw and primitive form!’ Wise words!

Want some slamming breakdowns – then Dying Fetus, Devourment and Amputated nail that. Want a load of techno-wankery then spin your Obscura / Necrophagist cd’s. What Peter does is nail a classic death metal vibe with some proper death metal vocals (none of that pig squeally bollocks here).

The 3 original tracks, ‘Devouring’, ‘Abomination’ & ‘Religious Apocalypse’ are all premium quality death metal in the vein of Deicide (‘Devouring’ wouldn’t sound out of place on any of their last 4 records) with incredibly fast & precise riffing and pounding drums. ‘Abomination’ is slower, heavier and a blend of some of the more crushing of Cannibal Corpse’s later material with ‘Blessed Are The Sick’ era Morbid Angel. The title track is likewise slower still and while not quite up to the intensity of the previous two belters, has a crushing bottom end that leaves you feeling beaten up…….. but up next are the two covers…..

Now if you’re of a certain vintage (late 30’s early 40’s) you’ll remember the days of glam & hair metal, perhaps with fondness (I do….. despite owning a Tigertailz record) or disgust. You just can’t argue with some of the classic glam rock songs and Bloodsoaked obviously agree by covering two of my utter fave guilty pleasures……..’Shake Me’ by Cinderella and Ratt’s ‘You’re In Love’. Adding a dose of extra chunk & crunch to the riffs and obviously some brutal DM vocals yet keeping the widdly solos in otherwise faithful renditions. Now this’ll probably have the DM elitist nobs spitting feathers but for me? Fucking brilliant! Sure-fire dancefloor fillers (and eyebrow raisers) in any metal club. Well done lads!

The four live tracks  culled from the bands back catalogue sound killer and are a sweet addition. The band, despite being essentially Peter’s project are obviously tighter than a nun’s chuff live and with a bit of luck we’ll be seeing them in the UK soon.

New Album Review from Absolute Media. 

I would not so much call this a new album as new 3 song ep with covers and live tracks . I will very much talk about the 3 new track as they are crushing and brutal classic melodic death metal that anyone with a weakness to the a nod to those Nuclear blast, Roadracer, Earache and Relapse days will want to listen over and over again. Sometime death metal is just suppose to be brutal, dark and heavy and with Bloodsoaked Peter has mastered just that.  Peter loves Carcass, Obituary, Bolt Thrower and Death this is very clear in the arrangements and tracks over all tones.  Now on to the covers Cinderella ( Shake me) and Ratt ( Your in Love) . To be honest they just make me freakin smile. We all love these songs don't lie to yourself and Bloodsoaked make them just kick ass  with Cinderella its something I swear Entombed did as that what it sounds like and just is aces!!!! Then with Ratt it's just that a death metal vocalist showing is love for a great hard rock song. These two track are just cool sir my hats off you Bloodsoaked for that . The live track just show how good Bloodsoaked are on the stage and as I've seem Peter as a one man force on stage I know flat out how good he is as an artist. I still feel he should have been on a much bigger label as Bloodsoaked are stronger then many bands on the big 4 death metal labels. I look forward to a proper full length in the future..

New album review from Two Guys Metal Reviews 

Review is from Matt Baggins at Two Guys Metal Reviews:

Now here's a nifty release. A new album from Bloodsoaked that contains three originals, two badass glam metal covers and four live tracks. I'm not sure what to make of this, it's certainly cool though, and an awesome introduction to the band for a Bloodsoaked newbie like me. Their new record Religious Apocalypse is interesting because it gives us a full scope of the band, from their new ideas, to their guilty pleasures. Getting a feel for the bands live stuff is great too and certainly keeps the record fresh, freshness being a quality far too few death metal records can boast these days.

There is something wonderfully meaty about the grooves on Bloodsoaked's new tracks. Songs like Abomination are strangely reassuring in their crushing destruction and obsession with gore. These songs don't rely on pig squeals or slam parts, but rather a huge bottom end that leaves you feeling beat up and broken. Every blast beat strikes below the belt, leaving you a husk of your former self by the time the record is over. The covers though are perhaps my favorite part of the record. You haven't lived until you've heard a death metal cover of a Cinderella song. These guys know it's silly, but they still do it incredibly well and it makes their reprises of songs that are pushing 30 incredibly fun.

Simply put, I love this kind of clearly enunciated death metal. The fact that the band have a sense of humor and great taste in glam only serves to bring Religious Apocalypse closer to my heart. As I let the grooves of Religious Apocalypse overcome me, it feels sort of right. This is what death metal is all about, old school magic that rings of blood, fire, and death. These guys are great songwriters and triumphant musicians. What more could you ask for from a death metal record in 2014? Dive into the pit and dance to Cinderella, Bloodsoaked know where it's at.
