BLOODHUNTER – Interview


Interview with Pete Devine of Pete’s Rock News and Views (http://petesrocknewsandviews.com)

PD: What type of artist are you?

B: We are a Melodic Death Metal band based in Spain.

 

PD: Tell us the brief history of yourself.

BLOODHUNTER is an extreme metal band born in Galician lands (Spain) in 2008 from the hand of sole founding member and main songwriter, DANI ARCOS. After several changes in their lineup and concept, DIVA SATANICA joins the band in 2012, whose guttural vocal assault helped drift the band into more extreme territories.

They release a demo called THE FIRST INSURRECTION in 2013, garnering good reviews from the specialized media.

Their self-titled full-length album is released in May 2014, produced by DANIEL CARDOSO and PEDRO MENDES at ULTRASOUND STUDIOS. Eleven tracks that include updated versions of the 3 songs already present in the demo, as a result of a journey from the instinct that expresses the essence of this band: its versatility.

THE END OF FAITH is the second full-length album of the band, produced by ÁLEX CAPPA and BLOODHUNTER at THE METAL FACTORY STUDIOS, which contains ten new tracks and a Crystal Mountain’s Death cover where you can hear DIVA SATANICA’s new broad vocal range. This album is the natural evolution of the band playing extreme metal without neglecting guitar melodies. “All These Souls Shall Serve… Forever!” is the cover letter of this album.

The band has released “A Twist of Fate to Come” and “The Forsaken Idol” from their 3rd full-length album named KNOWLEDGE WAS THE PRICE will be published on May 27, 2022.

 

PD: Who are your musical and non-musical influences?

B: We have many different influences: from classics like Judas Priest or Ozzy Osbourne to modern metal bands like Children of Bodom or Behemoth.

 

PD: What are your dreams and goals?

B: Keep improving our music as much as we can.

 

PD: Who writes your songs, what are they about?

B: Usually, Diva Satanica and Dani Arcos are the main songwriters. Daniel Luces and G. Starless also contributed with a couple of songs each one.

 

PD:  How do you promote your band and shows?

B: We try to do it through social media and mouth to mouth.

 

PD: What do you think about downloading music online?

B: I think most of the people is now using streaming platforms to listen music more than downloading it. I think it is bad for the industry to provide your music for free, but it is what it is. Right now, most of the incoming of the bands is from merchandising and live shows.

 

PD: What song do you wish you’d written and why?

B: Well, I would be so proud to have written any Judas Priest classic haha.

 

PD: What are some of your pet peeves?

B: We are very perfectionists so we really suffer when something is not right or done in the best possible way.

 

PD: What is your proudest moment in music?

B: Probably right now, as we are releasing Knowledge Was The Price on May 27 and it is, by far, the best record we ever made.

 

PD: So what are you working on at the moment?

B: We are trying to promote the new album and close shows for 2023.

 

PD: What music have you available online and where can we buy it from? 

B: You can find BLOODHUNTER music at Spotify, Apple Music or Youtube. If you want to buy physical albums or merchandising, you could go to https://www.eltridente.es/616_bloodhunter
