BLOODCLOT! Featuring Ex-CRO-MAGS, BIOHAZARD Members: EPK Posted Online

A six-minute EPK (Electronic Press Kit) for BLOODCLOT! — the new band featuring former BIOHAZARD drummer Danny Schuler, ex-CRO-MAGS frontman John Joseph, former SPUDMONSTERS/BIOHAZARD guitarist Scott Roberts, ex-PRO-PAIN guitarist Eric Klinger, and former MERAUDER bassist Rick Lopez — can be viewed below.

BLOODCLOT! is currently seeking a record deal with its self-produced debut, "Burn Babylon Burn".

Setting a new standard in hardcore, BLOODCLOT! maintains a positive focus, preserving the tenets of unity central to the classic ethos. And true to the classic punk-rock DIY vibe, they also wrote and recorded everything together in drummer Danny Schuler's studio, with no outside influence, financially or otherwise.

"We set out to create a piece of music that would last forever, and reflect the turbulent times we're living in," explains Schuler. "The only way to do that was to believe in each other and do it completely by ourselves. We lived every second of this record, we trusted our instincts, and worked our asses off to get it done. We made this record with absolutely no regard for what is popular right now. We listened to ourselves, dug deep, and created the record we wanted to hear."

Vocalist John Joseph describes the group's sound: "I don't want to lock it into any categories. There are hardcore and metal qualities, punk rock qualities, even some fusion in certain parts. It's just heavy music with a heavy message."

Even the band’s name itself possesses an important meaning. "In Jamaican, the word 'bloodclot' is a curse that describes everything being fucked up. It's a 'bloodclot' situation, what's happening on the planet, who's running things through deception and lies, and we need to fix it," says Joseph.
