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 Luigi Valenti, guitarist Stefano Rossi Ciucci, 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 chant 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In 2017 we had two important line-up changes: our frontman has been replaced by the ultra guttural and high talented vocalist Luis Maggio (Sudden Death) and we took the duties of a second guitar on stage by Stefano Clementini (SRL).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 that will be out via Unique Leader Records in the first middle of 2018.
