As Blood Runs Black Bio:
As Blood Runs Black is an American deathcore band from Los Angeles, California formed in 2004. They are currently signed to Mediaskare Records and their debut album ‘Allegiance’ achieved considerable success making the band a well-known act. Their influences range from melodic death metal to metalcore.
During 2007’s The Summer Slaughter Tour, drummer Leche was kicked out the band due to personal differences with the other members. He was replaced with Ryan Thomas, formerly of the band The Serpent Son. This event led to some serious online bashing from fans, as Leche was their only remaining “original” member and in fact recruited the other members of the “Allegiance lineup” with an almost complete album’s worth of material. This also brought dismay to the fans as Allegiance was mostly noted by Leche’s unique and extremely technical drumming style.
In 2008 Leche rejoined the group. Both vocalist (Chris) and second guitarist (Sal) left and have been replaced by Ken Maxwell (formerly of Behead the Tyrant) and Dan Sugarman (of Fallen Figure).
