RIFFS OR GTFO ANNOUNCES CALIFORNIA BLOOD: VOLUME 1 COMPILATION ALBUM
Release date Friday January 26th. Free digital version, CD and limited-edition cassette available with two bonus tracks.
San Diego-based heavy metal label Riffs or GTFO has announced the imminent release of their first offering, California Blood: Volume 1, a compilation featuring eleven of the Golden State’s best new heavy metal artists. While not conforming to a singular sound, all of the hard-hitting tracks on the album have roots based in classic metal.
Included are Earth Crawler, Fallen Suns, Great Electric Quest, Hell Fire, Horseneck, Monarch, The Power of Pain, Raise the Guns, Realms of Vision, SkullGunner, and Void Vator. Physical copies include tracks from Blood Dancer and Legal Tender. Two songs will be debuted on California Blood: Volume 1 - Realms of Vision’s “Isolation's Crown” (from their forthcoming debut LP on Creator-Destructor Records) and SkullGunner’s “Warlords”.
Musicians in these groups have been found playing with the likes of Testament, Entheos, Chelsea Wolfe, Holy Grail, Forbidden, White Wizzard, Cage, Animosity, Will Haven, Set Your Goals, and Gypsyhawk - to name a few. You’ll also hear a scorching guest vocal by thrash titan Steve “Zetro” Souza from Exodus on The Power of Pain’s track “Tastes Like H8”. The collection of talent on this compilation is truly remarkable.
California Blood: Volume 1 is proof that California continues to be one of metal’s most productive and talented regions. It will be available Friday, January 26th at californiablood.net. Physical copy preorders are up now.
