Great comeback album from US Christian Metal icons after 22 years since their last studio album. Together with Stryper, Whitecross , Barren Cross, Bride and Petra they raised the banner for Christian Metal in the 80´s. Still they have the fire passion to deliver heavenly metal to the people! Featuring Oz Fox of Stryper!
“After weeks of anticipation, “Dangerously Close”, is finally mixed and mastered and the band is very excited about the results. The CD is being manufactured and packaged for release and will soon be shipping to Bloodgood fans around the globe. Kickstarter supporters will be the very first to rock out to the new release when the download codes for the digital version are emailed out next week”.
Recently the band signed with Swedish’s Doo Little Group AB , the label which is runned by Christian Liljegren [DivineFire, Audiovision, Golden Resurrection & ex Narnia]. The album will be released by them on December 5th.
“Dangerously Close” is Bloodgood‘s first studio release in 22 years. Earlier this week, the band has released the first single and music video off their upcoming album. The video for ‘Lamb of God’ can be seen below.
The album will be mastered by David Zaffiro [seven-time Dove Award recipient and Grammy nominee] and founding Bloodgood guitarist.

The music & mission of Bloodgood has been a vital stepping stone & driving force in the maturing process of Christian Metal since their 1986 debut release. Platinum-‐selling sophomore record “Detonation” strengthened the band’s signature style of theatrics, power & emotion -‐ staples that would solidfy their place in rock music history.
