Below is our complete Mournblade news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Mournblade was formed in the summer of 1987 as a trio. However a series of bad timing and events keep the band from playing live. Death, jailed band members, and military deployments took its toll in the early years, however Mournblade moved on with its surviving founding members as an on-and-off project for the next 15 years.
After the death of drummer Jake Blood from a car accident in 1989, and bassist Tom Rubian commiting suicide in 1993 in South Korea as a member of the 2nd Infantry Division, the band went underground as the founding member took a bass slot in LA's first deathcore band, Sacreligious Death (formed in 1983).
Mournblade was still a project band playing for only local house shows and friends parties. Jeff Blacky still pushed on with founding guitarist Rick Auschwitz. After almost 20 years the band finally moved into NightinGale Studios to record a 5 song CD which is scheduled for a early September 2006 release on Open Grave Records.
