BLEEDING GODS Announce New Keyboardist
April 10, 2018, 5 months ago
When Bleeding Gods attracted attention with Dodekathlon this past January, countless reviews and reports drew comparisons to forces like Septic Flesh, Cradle Of Filth, Dimmu Borgir, Fleshgod Apocalypse and Behemoth - much to the liking of the band who emulate their role models with pride!
The key to the sound on their current album, which they call epic death/black metal, was, amongst other things, the use of keyboard and synthesizer (played by Martin Powell, ex-Cradle Of Filth / Anathema / My Dying Bride). Unfortunately, the band's lineup, consisting of Mark Huisman (vocals), Ramon Ploeg and Rutger Van Noordenburg on guitars, Gea Mulder (bass + backing vocals) and Daan Klemann on drums, has so far not included a permanent keyboardist, which is something fans noticed during live shows.
It quickly became clear that this would have to change as soon as possible, so today, Bleeding Gods are proud to announce that David Gutierrez Rojas (ex-Kingfisher Sky, Elleanore and Misanthropia) has joined the band and will be handling all epic keys and soundscapes from now on.
David states: "I am very excited and motivated to be a part of this band. Bleeding Gods is a great band and I am happy to be a part of the family!"
The band have already started rehearsals for the upcoming live shows with David and, in the near future, they will also start the writing process for the followup to Dodekathlon.
Upcoming live dates:
May (with Shinigami)
18 - Osaka, Japan - Club Vijon
19 - Nagoya, Japan - Rad Seven
20 - Tokyo, Japan - Club Z Kinoto
25 - Tokyo, Japan - Live Freak
