With 3 days till the Bloodstock madness begins, today we would like to introduce you to Blood Oath, they will be playing The New Blood Stage on Friday the 11th.
The bludgoning metal beast that is Blood Oath was the brain child of guitarist Frazer Hart (previously of Black River Project) who’s desire for writing and performing crushing death metal resurfaced. After recruiting the familiar faces of Adrian McGlennon (drums), David Camp (bass) both from BRP and long term friends Mark “Thrax” Johnson (vocals, previously of Slavestate) and Mike Freeman (guitar). Blood Oath was formed in December 2015 after an invitation by Simon Yarwood of resinevents to enter the 2016 Metal 2 the Masses competition in Leicester.
