Liverpool-based Death Blooms have signed with US-based indie label Adventure Cat and, to celebrate, they’ve unleashed a gargantuan slab of metal, ‘Life Is Pain’, which is all too pertinent to the world we’re living in right now. Says vocalist Paul Barrow: “This song, as with many of our songs, looks at the daily struggle. We, as a species, experience many things: pain is something we all know only too well.”
As part of their in-progress Adventure Month, the announcement of Death Blooms on the Adventure Cat roster follows the label announcing a partnership with Chicago’s High Wire earlier this month with more to come. Matthew Clarke from Adventure Cat enthuses “We are so thrilled to welcome Death Blooms to the Adventure Cat Records family. We have been fans of the band for a year or so as they’ve torn up the underground UK metal scene. Welcoming them to our roster of incredible upcoming artists has been a perfect match and we are so excited to begin this next chapter with them.”
Last year, Death Blooms released the vitriolic ‘You Are Filth’ EP – a collection of tracks fuelled by crushing riffs and vocalist Barrow’s cutting delivery. The EP garnered attention from the likes of Kerrang!, Rock Sound and the BBC Radio 1 Rock Show and the band had crowds across the country headbanging along to their vigorous live show.
Having already stamped out their ground as one of the most exciting heavy prospects in the UK with ‘You Are Filth’, and having shared stages with the likes of Loathe, Insane Clown Posse, King 810, Korn’s Jonathan Davis, Ded and Skindred, Death Blooms are poised to take that promise to the next level with the release of their debut album later this year.
