PREORDER: Cursed Blood "Taker of Life" 12" EP (Black/Grey Swirl)
by Cursed Blood
CURSED BLOOD formed at the beginning of 2019, in Athens, Greece. Although this act is new, all four members of the band have been involved in metal and punk bands for the past twenty to twenty-five years. Bassist Tilemachos Karatzas currently plays guitar in well-known underground death metal band Dead Congregation and black metal outfit Burial Hordes, vocalist Aris Panagopoulos also sings for hardcore/crust act Sarabante, drummer Nikos Prapas also plays with cult underground death metal band Vulnus, and guitarist Costa Kostopoulos formerly played with cult crust/death act Nuclear Winter (pre-Dead Congregation) and more recently, black/thrashers Satan’s Wrath.
The idea behind putting CURSED BLOOD together was to form a death metal band with a crust punk attitude, fueled by Entombed, Disfear, Autopsy, and alcohol. The band released their debut, Taker Of Life, on cassette in October 2019 through a small local underground label, Extreme Earslaughter. The tape sold out in a couple of weeks, and in February 2020 the band self-released a CD version through their own Katara Records. Now, Creator-Destructor Records will release Taker Of Life in a proper vinyl version. The record will be pressed on 12” vinyl, limited to 150pcs.
Taker Of Life was recorded June 2019 at Ignite studio by George Christoforidis, and mixed and mastered by Costa Kostopoulos. The cover sketch was created by Drop Virus and the design and layout was handled by A. D. Visions.
