Legendary American thrashers Blood Feast are currently recording their fourth album, as yet untitled, for Hells Headbangers. Recording is taking place at LCBW Recording in Watchung, New Jersey, and will once again be produced by guitarists Adam Tranquilli and CJ Scioscia, with the engineering & mixing handled by Scioscia. The album will contain nine songs, with a tenth song as a CD-only bonus track. A release during the first half of 2020 is expected.
In other Blood Feast news, the band will be playing the inaugural True Thrash Fest Hamburg on November 22nd at Kultur Palast in Hamburg, Germany along with Razor, Toxik, At War, Riverge, and Finland's Excuse. The band will also be playing the festival pre-show at Bambi Galore, also in Hamburg. At this headlining show, Blood Feast will be performing the entire Kill for Pleasure album, the band's classic debut from 1987. Also on the bill are False Prophets and Thrashfire.
Beloved cult favorites from the '80s, Blood Feast had a couple restarts before finally coalescing into the lean, mean killing machine found on comeback album The Future State of Wicked, released in 2017 to rabid critical acclaim by longtime fans Hells Headbangers. Keeping that fast 'n' furious momentum going is the special mini-album Chopped, Sliced and Diced, released at the end of 2018. The four-song firestorm (six songs on the CD and tape version) brings the past into the present with modern re-recordings of classic Blood Feast tracks from their original incarnation. But don't be mistaken by the word "modern," for Chopped, Sliced and Diced retains all the rabid, adrenaline-overdosed fury of the band's late '80s heyday - if not more!
