“DEATH”, the 3rd EP from Austin’s Bloody Knives, is the band’s heaviest and darkest record to date.  Written and recorded in a week, the EP is an explosion of metallic noise, grimy ambience, pummeling beats and ethereal vocals.  The record was engineered specifically for release on 7” vinyl. 

Bloody Knives is based in Austin Texas and consists of Preston Maddox (voice/bass/sounds), Jake McCown (drums), Kim Calderon (samples) and Christo Buffam (keyboards).  Constant touring has spread the bands reputation as an explosive live act, with dense layers of sound and blasts of noise.

"Some bands ditch the bass, opting instead for one or two guitars that can play the low notes when needed. The guys in Austin rock/stoner metal/psychedelic band Bloody Knives do the opposite (at least in a live setting), proving that the bass/drum s/synthesizer setup can work for a rock band. What’s more is that the Knives’ music comes across as thoughtful as it is forceful on stage."-- Austin American Statesman

“A high adrenaline electro-thrash duo with Shoegaze overtones; Bloody Knives have a unique, industrial synth-punk sound that transcends multiple genres. Preston Maddox and Jake McCown’s intricate sound is as if you injected My Bloody Valentine with 300cc of amphetamine, gave them all synths, and sent them careening into a Dead Meadow concert. Their new album Blood is a beautiful and broken patchwork of noise, with 8-bit bleeps, soaring synths, and urgent drums that throttle through psych guitars and dreamy vocals.”—The Horn

nothing can save you now
not alone
waiting for you to die
kill you all
bullet in your head
peeling away the skin
