Band Biographies: Oldblood


Formed in north London in 2018, Oldblood have set about combining the members various musical tastes into one cohesive, blackened monstrosity - combining elements of doom, punk, post-metal and black metal to form a sound that has turned heads since their debut live show supporting OHHMS & Boss Keloid through to supporting doom titans CONAN along with headlining their own shows. 

Currently preparing to release their debut EP 'Arms to the Sky' on the 4th December 2020; preceded by the single 'Kuebiko' on the 13th November, expect Oldblood to continue pushing their brand of aural misery as far as possible. 

'Arms to the Sky' is 4 tracks themed around the dropping of the atomic bomb over Hiroshima - both aurally and lyrically. Crushing riffs combined with devastating melodies that paint the agonized picture of life before, during and after the nuclear explosion. 

Lead track 'Kuebiko' opens the EP with a crushing riff designed to paint a picture of devastation right off the bat; with the song building to an explosion of its own. The title 'Kuebiko' is actually a Japanese word that translates as "a state of exhaustion inspired by acts of senseless violence, which force you to revise your image of what can happen in this world" 

'Nuclear Blues' swaggers out of the gate with a bluesy riff, that descends into a double time frenzy before unraveling into a state of exhaustion. 'Los Alamos' is an atmospheric telling of the story of the creation of the atomic bomb & the final track 'Alone' tells the story of 'She'. 'She' stands alone in the devastation caused by the atomic blast and having lost everything; wonders what she is to do with her life.
