Nuclear Blast Records Inks Deal With Bleeding Gods

Today, Nuclear Blast proudly announces the signing of Dutch epic death/black metal act Bleeding Gods. The upcoming album "Dodekathlon" will be released in January 2018. More information is coming very soon.

Of the signing, founding member and guitarist Ramon Ploeg comments: "Bleeding Gods is very proud to announce the signing of a worldwide deal with the mighty Nuclear Blast Records. We feel honored to be part of the Nuclear Blast family - it is exciting beyond words to be part of the finest metal label on earth. We deeply respect Nuclear Blast and all it stands for. The visions of the band and the label match in every way and we feel this is the start of an incredible collaboration. We can simply not wait to unleash our upcoming beast of an album upon you. We hope to see you on the road somewhere soon!"

Bleeding Gods not only made a name for itself in the band's home country, but also received lots of positive feedback for the live show experiences at Eindhoven Metal Meeting, Antwerp Metal Fest and Stonehenge Festival.

The band was founded in 2012 when guitarist Ramon Ploeg started to write an album after he had left the Dutch death metal band Houwitser. Ramon, who wanted to fulfill his dream of having his own band, wrote some basic demos that were groovy, heavy, thrashy and, in parts, classical. When the pre-production demos were finished, the time was right to look for people to join the project. Ramon set about contacting some fellow metal musicians he had met over the past few years at several festivals, club shows and tours. The former bands of his band colleagues at that time were (technical) death metal bands so the challenge to do something different this time was really appealing!

After a few rehearsals, Bleeding Gods recorded the 4-track promo entitled "Blood Symphony" in 2013. The lyrical theme was about ancient gods and history related to the Mayans, ancient Egypt and Greek gods. The demo soon sold out.

In 2014, the band signed with Punishment 18 Records, which released the debut album "Shepherd Of Souls." The record was met with positive reviews around the world.

The big turning point for the band came one year later with a new lineup, new songs, new concept, and a new album! Now stronger than ever, Bleeding Gods is a band that knows exactly where it is heading and what it wants.
