HTR022 ARKHAM 13: BLOODFIEND CD

Release date: 19 August 2009

It’s Derek NEGLECT’S old school thrash band, ARKHAM13, death and doom mixed with hardcore intensity. Definitely not lazy or boring retro shit, and definitely nothing “nu”, don’t be afraid! “Bloodfiend” was supposed to come out years ago, but the band wasn’t lucky with labels. Derek contacted us about this unreleased, yet fully mixed and mastered CD, and we were more than happy to help out in releasing the CD by one of our youthhood heroes. Long Island
hardcore/metal lives!

This is what Derek says:
AFTER 10 LONG YEARS…THE WAIT IS FINALLY OVER. BLOODFIEND IS FINALLY OUT FOR THE WORLD TO HEAR!
RECORDED WAY BACK IN 1999, AFTER JUGGLING THIS CD BETWEEN 4 DIFFERENT RECORD LABELS…THIS LONG OVERDUE & HIGHLY ANTICIPATED CD IS FINALLY OUT COURTESY OF HELL’S TONE RECORDS, FINLAND.
THIS IS HANDS DOWN THE BEST CD WE HAVE EVER RECORDED. 3/4 OF THIS CD IS ACTUALLY RECORDED LIVE TO DAT! WE WERE JUST SO CONFIDENT AS A BAND WE WANTED THAT LIVE SOUND…AND SINCE CRAIG @ BRASS GIRAFFE STUDIOS (WHERE BLOODFIEND WAS RECORDED) WAS THE SOUNDMAN FOR THE INFAMOUS LIMELIGHT CLUB IN NYC, WE ASKED HIM WE WANTED TO SOUND LIKE A BAND PLAYING LIVE @ THE LIMELIGHT…SO WE DECIDED TO RECORD LIVE FOR ONE SESSION…WHICH MADE UP FOR 3/4 OF THE CD, THE REST WAS RECORDING WITH FEW OVERDUBS AND THE ADDITION OF RION (UNEARTHLY TRANCE) OF 2ND GUITAR ON SELECT TRAX.
GET YOURSELVES A COPY WHILE THEY ARE GONE! YOU WILL NOT BE DISSAPOINTED!!!
