Gory Blister are an old-school death metal band originally inspired by Death and the Kreator/Pestilence tradition. It’s no coincidence they made their debut in 1991.
After their official debut Art Bleeds, the album that got the best attention from the audience was Skymorphosis, providing the band the chance to go on a big European tour, alongside Steve Di Giorgio’s Sadus, and Darkane.
In the two albums released in the following years, ”Graveyard Of Angels ”and ”Earth-Sick”, the latter is worth mentioning, featuring Karl Sanders from Nile, as a special guest on vocals in 2 songs.
Eventually, ”The Fifth Fury” could have been the band’s ultimate album, but the die hard passion for music, and the challenge to push it forward, has motivated the band to write new material, laying the foundations for the new album called “1991.Bloodstained”, which was out via Mighty Music Records on September 28th.
During the writing process and demoing period of this new effort, the band had the privilege to receive the artistic and impartial consulting from the Godfather of Metal, Jon Zazula (the man who discovered Metallica), with whom the guitarist Raff Sangiorgio got in touch during the promotion of his solo album “Rebirth”.
Listening to the demos, Jon Zazula made his criticism on the work in progress, which was seriously taken into consideration by the band, in order to get the best songwriting ever on this new album.
“1991.Bloodstained” now exists. It’s an album with a self-congratulatory title, because it recalls the birth date of Gory Blister, even if the lyrics, as in the past, deal with a poetic and visionary perceiving of tragedies and disasters caused by the human race on Earth.
