Upon the recent announcement of the release of the Strapping Young Lad vinyl box sets, I took it upon myself to find out who was doing this and what else the company had in store for us. It turns out that Blood Music has been around for just about 2 years now Starting in April of 2011 and becoming a fully registered company later that year in October. In the two years of business Blood Music has released many different albums on vinyl all of which are very exclusive to their company as well as released in a minimum quantity, making it that much more special for the fans.
Hailing from Helsinki, Finland, Blood Music has released works from bands such as Sigh, Thy Catafalque, Ihsahn, Psycroptic, Lykathea Flame, Ensiferum, Serdce, Kauan, maudlin of the Well, Whourkr, Negură Bunget, Ne Obliviscaris, Odium, Aquilus, Gire, Shining, Nightbringer. Running only as a three piece not for profit outfit I would say they have kept themselves quite busy in pleasing the Extreme Metal fans. If you would like to see what they have to offer please check out their site (www.blood-music.com) so we can have more exclusive vinyl released to us in the coming years!
Remember their pressings are limited so order fast, they do some excellent work and I look forward to doing a LOT of business with them in the future!
