Bloodhorse Sign With Translation Loss Records

Translation Loss Records has announced the signing of Boston-Massachusetts' BLOODHORSE.

Consisting of Alex Garcia-Rivera (drums), Matt Woods (bass, vocals), and Adam Wentworth (guitar, vocals), BLOODHORSE formed at the tail-end of 2004 as an informal avenue of keeping busy during the down time of their respective bands. The following year would see the band become their main focus as previous obligations disbanded or disintegrated, and the core of their early material would be realized. Though a relatively new group, the members of BLOODHORSE have spent the last decade touring and releasing records with an expansive collective resume that includes 454 BIG BLOCK, SHELTER, THE RED CHORD, SAVES THE DAY, AMERICAN NIGHTMARE and PREMONITIONS OF WAR. However, BLOODHORSE dispel any notion of prior band affiliation with the bastardized wall of sound delivered on their upcoming Translation Loss debut, "EP", that pays homage to the likes of DEEP PURPLE and THE WHO while fusing contemporary elements from bands like ENTOMBED and SAINT VITUS.

Commented the band: "We try to approach our influences in the same way that, say, LED ZEPPELIN approached ROBERT JOHNSON and WILLIE DIXON. They were certainly beholden to their influences, yet in a way that wasn't a carbon copy. Collectively, we find the ethics and approach that these bands had to the creative process just as influential, if not more so, than the actual product itself."

BLOODHORSE's Translation Loss Records debut release, "EP", was recorded solely by the band, mastered at M-Works in Massachusetts and will see a mid-summer 2007 release. Clocking in at about 37 minutes, "EP" will floor the rock and metal community with its sheer abrasive nature and nods to the old guard.

You can listen to tracks from the forthcoming release on the band's MySpace page.
