"The crimson tide rise again! And this time it comes across as more ferocious and devastating than ever before! Blood Tsunami's new album 'For Faen' shows a band that has stripped their metal to the bone. Harder, meaner, dirtier and way more aggressive!

"This album is a relentless sonic beating. The songs are thrown at you, one by one, with an infernal speed that threathens to rip off chunks of flesh from your whole upper body. Rampant dogs is jumping out of your loudspeakers, daggers and bullets comes at you like a wall of horizontal rain. This is metal the way it was meant to be. Totally vicious and utterly dangerous!

"'For Faen' is a monster of an album that will break your legs off by the knee and use them to beat the skull straight off your spine. You are in for some sickening tales from the dark side of humanity. Grotesque stories about some of the worlds worst serial killers, detailed information about horrendous ancient torture methods, war crimes, mass murder and chemicals, addiction and rotten human skin."

Blood Tsunami Writing New Material

BLOOD TSUNAMI, the Oslo, Norway-based thrash metal band featuring drummer Bard G. Eithun (a.k.a. Faust; SCUM, ABORYM, ex-EMPEROR), are currently spending their time writing and rehearsing new material for their next studio assault. "The new stuff is brutal beyond belief and true fans of quality thrash metal won't be disappointed," the band write in a statement. "The plan is to hit Lion Heart Studio in Oslo, Norway during December this year and record a full-length album."

BLOOD TSUNAMI was formed in 2004 by guitarist and vocalist Pete Evil, who hooked up with Jay on drums and began to arrange and rehearse some metal riffs he had written, but never used during his years in the rock 'n' roll/punk band called HELLRIDE.

The music of BLOOD TSUNAMI was, and still is, nothing but vicious and aggressive old-school thrash metal, heavily influenced by early SLAYER, TESTAMENT, EXODUS, METALLICA, DESTRUCTION and KREATOR.

Soon Riff Randall joined on bass and Dor stepped in on the second guitar. Shortly after they recorded their first demo and on August 24, 2004 they performed their first show. This carnage took place at Last Train, a small rock 'n' roll bar downtown in Oslo, and BLOOD TSUNAMI played support for the mighty Swedish death metal legends ENTOMBED.

After a while, Riff Randall decided to leave the band and was quickly replaced by Bosse, who used to play bass with Pete in HELLRIDE. The band continued to play live and got to play support for another legendary band, namely DEICIDE from Florida. This happened at John Dee in Oslo on October 22, 2004.

Not many months later, Jay also decided to drop out of the band to focus on his work as a graphic designer. Determined to get BLOOD TSUNAMI back on track, Pete soon called up Faust and asked him to join the band. Faust liked what he heard and agreed to give it a try.

With a new lineup intact, the band hit Lion Heart Studios and during three days in July 2005 they recorded another demo. The outcome of this session can be heard at myspace.com/bloodtsunami (English) and NRK.no (Norwegian).
