Frozen Screams Imprint partners once again with Cavernous Records (UK) for the debut album from BLOOD RAGE, “Welcome to Crimson Pines.” Formed in 2020 by Tom Hughes (Crypt Rot / Maimed) to create old school death metal inspired by the golden era of the genre + stylized under the influence of late 1980’s slasher horror films. After a year of Tom writing + recording all the guitars + bass, Filip Garlonta (Putred / Demoted) joined the band on vocals + Ryan Wills (Seven Doors / Born Undead) provided guest solos + drum programming.
Kyle Messick of Maimed provides guest vocals on “He Came Back" + Italian synth composer TV Crimes composed 2 intros to each side of the release, with a loving homage to 80’s slasher themes that echo Harry Manfredini + Stelvio Cipriani, serving as bookends that create an atmosphere akin to a Friday night stroll through the horror section of your musty local video store during the VHS boom!
The result: 8 tracks that form a conceptual album to begin the band’s journey into death metal meets summer camp slasher nostalgia — with each forthcoming release revealing more about the camp’s bloody history.
Death metal + horror have gone hand-in-hand for decades — that was one of the principles on which Frozen Screams Imprint was founded. No release in our catalog to date better encapsulates that synergy quite like BLOOD RAGE! Limited edition "Pines" USA cassette version by Frozen Screams with Cavernous providing UK / EU cassette + CD formats. Digital + merch available from the band.
Join us around the campfire — your life may just depend on it!
