BLOODTRUTH – Technical brutal death da Perugia
“Nati nel 2009 come side project dei FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE, i BLOODTRUTH, band Perugina, dopo qualche cambio di line up,( Francesco Paoli e Paolo Rossi lasciano il progetto per dedicarsi ai Fleshgod apocalypse) trovano assetto nel 2012, che dopo aver registrato il loro primo EP, nel 2014 esce sotto la prestigiosa UNIQUE LEADER il loro debut album ‘ OBEDIENCE ‘. Ed oggi a distanza di 4 anni dalla loro prima uscita stiamo qui a parlare del loro secondo full length ‘ MARTYRIUM ‘ uscito il 28/09/2018 sempre sotto la stessa UNIQUE LEADER. Un disco che non passa di certo inosservato, dove a far luce sono sicuramente le ottime qualità dei musicisti che certamente non hanno niente da invidiare ai Big del genere, in poche parole, “ Macchine da guerra “. Un mix di brutalità e violenza tecnica che si rifà ai primi FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE, ai connazionali HOUR OF PENANCE, NILE e SUFFOCATION. Insomma parliamo di una band destinata a diventare uno dei pilastri portanti del Death Metal italico… e non solo!! ”

Initially forged in 2009 by Stefano Rossi Ciucci and as the side project of FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE members Francesco Paoli and Paolo Rossi, and now featuring the updated lineup of vocalist Luis Maggio, guitarists Stefano Rossi Ciucci and Stefano Clementini, bassist Riccardo Rogari and drummer Giacomo Torti, Bloodtruth heave forth a sonic fire ball of speed, brutality and unadulterated hate. Fusing the cryptic atmosphere of early ’90s death metal, evocative Gregorian chants representing the band’s homeland and history and methodical technicality, Bloodtruth are ceaseless in their ear-lacerating capabilities. Following the release of a two-track promo in 2012, the band joined Unique Leader for the release of their debut full-length, slated to drop later this year. Titled Obedience, the ten-track behemoth was engineered by Francesco Paoli and Cristiano Trionfera (both of Fleshgod Apocalypse) at Sonic Hammer Studios, mixed and mastered by the Italian sound sorcerer Stefano Morabito (HOUR OF PENANCE, EYECONOCLAST, UNFATHOMABLE RUINATION, INHERIT DISEASE) at 16th Cellars Studios and bears the sinister artwork of Colin Marks of Rain Song Design (EXODUS, Fleshgod Apocalypse, KATAKLYSM).
Unique Leader Records released “Obedience” on September 16th, 2014 (USA) and September 19th worldwide, while the band was touring Europe with Antropofagus and Devangelic. In September 2015 the band had the opportunity to tour Europe with the mighty Suffocation and Nile during the “What Should Not Be Unheated” european tour. Says Dead Rhetoric in an 8/10 review of the record, “despite the blitzkrieg that is invoked through these nine tracks (the album opens to some cool chanting), there is a flow and careful precision to the album and the fusion of the vocals and guitar riffs will keep you quite intrigued. ‘Quench Your Thirst,’ ‘Foresworn,’ and ‘Surrounded By Blind Bigots’ should all convey this message effectively: riff fast and furious, but with purpose (and tasteful solos).” In 2017 we had two important line-up changes: our frontman has been replaced by the ultra guttural and high talented vocalist Luis Maggio (Sudden Death) and we took the duties of a second guitar on stage by Stefano Clementini (SRL). In April 2017 we started the production of our new record called “Martyrium“, out via Unique Leader Records in September 28th.
Martyrium is 10 tracks of pure death metal aggression, unrelenting musical intensity, and powerful, acidic, hateful vocals. The main themes interlinking the wide range of subjects covered in “Martyrium” are human sacrifice, carnage and slaughter which the Christian Church carried out against all those found guilty of being “heretics”. In this album, historical and ethical relevance are both firmly bonded to the circumstances and facts mentioned in the lyrics. Bloodtruth decided to take into account some of the events narrated in the famous bestseller “The Name of the Rose” (Umberto Eco, 1980) and its vast number of historical and philosophical references, mostly focusing on the martyrdom topic too. The new artwork masterpiece, done by the highly acclaimed peruvian artist Josè Gabriel Alegria Sabogal (Beheaded, Inferno) fits perfectly with this concept.
