A SHORT INTRODUCTION TO BLOOD TSUNAMI:
Blood Tsunami formed in 2004. Guitarist and vocalist Pete Evil hooked up with Jay on drums and began to arrange and rehearse some metalriffs he had written, but never used during his years in the rock n roll/punk band called Hellride.
The music of Blood Tsunami was, and still is, nothing but vicious and aggressive old school thrash metal, heavily influenced by early Slayer, Testament, Exodus, Metallica, Destruction and Kreator.
Soon Riff Randall joined on bass and Dor stepped in on the second guitar.
Shortly after they recorded their first demo and on august the 24th they performed their first show. This carnage took place at Last Train, a small rock n roll bar downtown in Oslo, and Blood Tsunami played support for the mighty Swedish death metal legends Entombed.
After a while Riff Randall decided to leave the band and was quickly replaced by Bosse who used to play bass with Pete in Hellride. The band continued to play live and got to play support for another legendary band, namely Deicide from Florida USA. This happened at John Dee in Oslo on 22nd of October 2004.
Not many months later Jay also decided to drop out of the band to focus on his work as a graphic designer. Determinded to get Blood Tsunami back on track, Pete soon called up Faust (Scum, Aborym, ex- Emperor) and asked him to join the band. Faust liked what he heard and agreed to give it a try. Today he is the fulltime skinbeater of Blood Tsunami.
With a new line up the band hit Lion Heart Studios and during three days in July 2005 they recorded another demo. The outcome of this session is what you hear here.
IF YOU WANT BLOOD ... YOU'VE GOT IT!
Major influences are 80's stuff by Slayer, Kreator, Destruction, Exodus, Testament and Metallica.
