Formed out of an appreciation for Henry Cow’s avant leanings, La Monte Young-inspired minimalism, and the power of sheer, punishing volume, Bludded Head approach metal with a focus on desperation rather than depravity. Exploring vulnerability while maintaining a hard-heartedness that is palpable, the sound is a wounded animal’s howl, a nerves-shot predator whose teeth find its prey in the dark.
Founding member Nevada Hill has surrounded himself with formidable players throughout the various incarnations of the band, a cast that includes men and women involved with Tiger Hatchery, Terminator 2, John Zorn, Drug Mountain, Jandek, R. Stevie Moore, and Daniel Johnston to name but a few.
Coming across like Codeine writing songs for Corrupted, Bludded Head are (very literally, trust us) a cancer-conquering force that collapses and devours all light at the end of the tunnel.
Professionally dubbed and packaged in a 5 panel insert featuring a comic by 7 yr old Gillian Hill, with gold on gold tapes, a strictly limited edition of the second installment of the Bludded Head saga.
“Doom bands come and go, many sounding similar to one another, with the greatest emphasis being placed on how far apart those gut-punch downbeats can be spaced; not so for Bludded Head, who seem in it to write, arrange and execute great songs, several worlds apart from the sameyness that characterizes many of their peers in the genre.”
