MR Exclusive Interview: Paul Ablaze of Blackguard

Posted by JDKleinhans on Friday, April 27, 2012 at 10:37 AM (PST)

Dick feet! That pretty sums up how this interview went. Actually, it was more of an hour long conversation of randomness that often occurs when you get several people such as this sitting on some comfy ass futons waiting for the start of a metal show. It was a helluva a good time and a helluva show. Check out the highly edited interview here.

The evening started with an awkward handshake. It ended with a man hug. Potential friendships had begun to be forged that mid-spring night. I suppose I should start at the beginning.

Upon arriving at the historic Rave / Eagles Club just west of downtown Milwaukee, I made a quick phone call to a gentleman who some call “Ablaze”. Between the wrought iron bars surrounding a school ground, I watched as the frontman for Blackguard raised his hand up in the air and spun around in a circle. This was going to be an interesting night indeed.

Instead of having the usual casual interview that I typically strive for – as I am very sensitive to the fact that I may be interrupting some pre-show ritual – I ended up sitting around on a futon while having a very laid back and oftentimes “inappropriate” 90 minute conversation with various members of not only Blackguard but Bonded By Blood and Kittie as well. If the show itself was going to be anything like this pre-show “interview” (stay tuned), then it was going to be a very memorable night indeed.

To see if the show itself was as memorable, head on over here.

Bonded By Blood reveal album title and artwork of upcoming album

Posted by metalrocker on Thursday, April 5, 2012 at 5:29 PM (PST)

California thrashers Bonded by Blood have revealed the title of their upcoming new studio album as The Aftermath. You can check out the artwork, as well as tour dates in support of the album here.

The Aftermath was recorded at Darth Mader Studios in Los Angeles, and will be the first Bonded By Blood album to feature vocalist Mauro Gonzalez and bassist Jessie Sanchez.

Here’s what Bonded By Blood drummer Carlos Regalado had to say about the album title and artwork:

“We worked so hard on this album for a solid year and we accomplished what we were aiming for. We named our third album ‘The Aftermath’. It’s got a simple meaning behind it – the aftermath of all the shit we’ve been through in the past couple years – member changes, unexpected problems on the road, personal issues, a lot of obstacles that almost ended BBB. This is what we love, this band is everything to us, we weren’t going to let other people dictate and destroy our aspirations and dreams. The Aftermath cover art is just straight up badass, it shows what society is doing wrong and how things need to change, or mother earth will fuck you up.”

Bonded By Blood will also be doing a North American tour with Kittie, Blackguard, and The Agonist this spring.

The Aftermath is due to be released on July 2nd in Europe and July 3rd in North America via Earache Records.

Bonded By Blood finish recording new album, release final studio update

Posted by metalrocker on Thursday, March 22, 2012 at 3:42 PM (PST)

California thrashers Bonded by Blood have recently finished recording their latest studio album, which will be their third on Earache Records and a follow up to their 2011 album Exiled to Earth. The band has also been documenting the making of the album, and has released a video of the final studio update, which you can watch here.

Here’s what Drummer Carlos Regaldo had to say about the album:

“It’s been a crazy and totally cool month for us. We have finally finished up recording album #3! We love the sound we got and the way the songs came out – it’s so aggressive and punchy. We poured everything we had into these songs (8 months!), and we can’t wait for everybody to hear it! Mauro did such an amazing job and it’s different from our previous records for sure, as is the music, but he really showed what he had and just totally blew us away. Our writing styles just keep evolving and we can’t even believe we are capable of creating such power. The writing and recording was a blast, Logan is cool as shit and it’s almost like he knew exactly what we wanted. We hope everybody enjoys this record as much as we do; we are gearing up for the road soon – see you in the pit!”

Bonded By Blood are also set for a North American tour with Kittie, Blackguard and The Agonist. You can check out the tour dates here.

Pomona, CA thrash revivalists, Bonded By Blood, have announced that Brandon Gulling (Malus Rex, Avenger Of Blood) and Ben Bennet (Smog, Warbringer) will be filling in on the bands upcoming trek across the U.S. with Sepultura, for amicably departing members Alex Lee (guitar) and Jerry Garcia (bass) respectively.

Bonded By Blood released the following statement in connection with Lee and Garcia’s departure: “We first lost our original bass player, Ruben Dominguez back in 2009, then singer Jose Barrales left the band in 2010, but each was replaced with new members and the group marched on. Now, we regret to announce that Alex Lee (guitar) and Jerry Garcia (bass) are also stepping away from BBB. We will miss them just as much as we miss Ruben and Jose, and this band will not be the same without them, but the three of us that are left in Bonded By Blood hope that everyone who enjoys this band can understand that changes are inevitable. As much as we want to keep an ‘original line-up’, things happen that you just can’t control.”
