Bloodgood has posted a trailer for “Trenches of Rock“, an upcoming documentary about the band. Trenches of Rock and Roll chronicles the 3 decade history of Bloodgood: Starting from the band’s 1985 debut cassette demo, Metal Missionaries, which put them on the map and won them the attention of Frontline Records & blues hall of fame & veteran music producer, Darrell Mansfield, leading to their first record deal. Their platinum-selling sophomore album Detonation was followed by their first major U.S. & European tour, 3 subsequent studio records, 8 live releases, and numerous compilation albums – ultimately solidifying their status as one of the founding fathers of Christian Metal in the 80s. (Thanks to our friends at Classicchristianrockzone for the news).

Check out the official trailer for “Trenches of Rock” below. Continue reading »

Jeff CarlsenThey had just returned from Germany, for a performance at Christmas Rock Night with Bloodgood. If Les & Joyce Carlsen hear terrible news about their son Jeff. Below a message from Joyce:

‘For those of you who have not yet heard, my son, Jeff went home to be with Jesus yesterday afternoon. Les and I had just landed in LAX around 4:30pm, on our way home from Germany when we got the call from Jeff’s boss that he was in the hospital. We were still on the plane when we called to find out how he was and were told that he had called 911 with difficulty breathing. They arrived to find him unconscious and without a pulse and administered CPR for an hour, but they weren’t able to revive him. He had been sick and out of work since Friday. We found cold medicine by his bed, so he must have thought he had a bad cold. There was also a thermometer, so he must have had a fever. Continue reading »
