Even before their debut self-titled album hit the internet, Old Blood was recognized as being “different” among the growing waves of doom / stoner rock bands. Signed sight unseen to DHU Records in Europe after the critically acclaimed release of just two demo tracks on bandcamp, Old Blood showed a push into unique territory in the genre with the addition of crystal clear vocals, keyboards an emphasis on heady grooves and an extensive live stage show featuring The Rigomortettes beyond the wall of amplifiers. The ultra-dynamic vocals and lyrics of singer Feathers captivates listeners and balances the tide of the massive sonic wall of the band. Elements of early ‘70s rock and psychedelia woven into the down-tempo, swing-beat fabric of fuzz laden desert rock come together in what the band refers to as “Acid Doom”.
Old Blood’s debut album was recorded and mixed by Frankie Siragusa at The Lab Studios in Hollywood, CA and mastered by renowned Los Angeles record mastering engineer Mike Wells at Mike Wells Mastering in North Hollywood, CA.
The album is available on Bandcamp for digital download and multi-colored limited edition vinyl records.
Since the release of the self-titled debut full-length, Old Blood received rave reviews from Rolling Stone, Doomed And Stoned, Doom Charts and the like, and started performing actively on the local, regional and national touring circuit. Old Blood was described by Rolling Stone as “Amy Winehouse jamming with Kyuss at a desert LSD party.” In 2018, the band signed to Wright Records / Sony Music Entertainment / The Orchard, and released a new single, “Enjoy The Devil”, with a stunning music video to boot.
Be on the lookout for more mesmerizing tunes and spellbinding rituals. There will be Blood!
