dangerously close 2013So its been 22 years since Bloodgood have brought out an album. Now all admitting they were way before my time to musically appreciate them at their peak. But over the years as I have collected their releases and allowed their music to wash over me, I have really and truly come to appreciate their music. Haha, Still, I remember ordering an album of theirs at my local Christian bookstore a couple years back, which never arrived….still waiting.

So in all fairness this is a comeback release. They were part of a group of metal acts of the 80‘s like Petra, White Cross and Stryper that pushed the quality and upheld the Christian metal banner high during that period. They were dependable for both their message and music. They were also known for their “go-for-broke attitude about showmanship,” displaying attitudes and imagery that brought them into collision with some on the extreme Christian right.

So 22 years down the line Bloodgood’s mission and music remains intact without deviation. They have more than contributed enough blood and sweat to the stepping stones and driving force of the Christian Metal scene since 1986. There is no doubt that their music holds a stylistic pillar in rock music history. You don’t survive almost 30 years in the music industry without having some sort of influence and reach in it. Bloodgood’s history spans 6 studio albums and 7 official live releases, with their 7th studio recording that was released in November. In 2010, Bloodgood was inducted into the CHRISTIAN MUSIC HALL OF FAME for their influential contributions to the music industry thus far. “In the Trenches of Rock and Roll,” a feature length documentary film about Bloodgood’s story is slated for release in 2014.
