Biography

Though the name of Chicago six-piece experimental ensemble BLOODIEST might trick you into thinking that the band’s interests lie with gore-obsessed death metal, that couldn’t be farther from the reality of things. And that’s just the way the band likes it – while BLOODIEST might toe the lines of countless extreme metal genres and are run through with dark imagery, the band members don’t even consider BLOODIEST a metal band. In one sense, that’s totally accurate – there are no blast beats, no subterranean gutturals in the band’s music, and its members have played in Russian Circles, Corrections House, and Yakuza among others – but while BLOODIEST’s exterior might not be strictly metal, the energy, heaviness, and intensity the band conveys undoubtedly are.
