My Ransomed Soul - Falsehoods My Ransomed Soul is a metalcore band from Maryland, USA that formed in 2007. They released their debut EP in 2009 when Brendan Frey (vocals) was still a young teenager and the band line-up had not yet gelled. They followed up with their ‘Hourglass’ EP (2010) and ‘Perceptions’ EP (2011), before settling into a more stable line-up for their full-length album ‘The Chains That Bind Us’ (2012). After extensive touring, they signed to Red Cord Records for their second full-length album ‘Falsehoods’ (2013).

My Ransomed Soul is not afraid to state that they are a Christian band made up of all Christian members. Whilst not forcing their beliefs on anyone, they do want everyone to know of the peace, hope, and truth they have found in Jesus Christ. Through their music and actions, the band wants to be a positive influence and is willing to talk to anyone about their beliefs. The current bad members are Brendan Frey (vocals), Garrison Frey (guitar), Mickey Basil (bass) and Daniel Busche (drums).

CoverBloodline Severed is a six-piece band from Winston Salem (North Carolina, US). Even though they formed in 2003, in their current line-up they have only been together for a couple of months. In 2006 they released an EP (‘Fear of Reality’) and in 2008 they released their first full length (‘Visions Revealed’). ‘Letters To Decapolis’ is their third release.

Bloodline Severed claim to be a band playing a combination of djent and metal. But they are so much more. Yes, they use downtuned eight strings and staccato riffs but I definitely do not want to compare this band with the majority of djent acts out there. Bloodline Severed combine many elements of extreme metal including (melodic) death metal, metalcore and even a bit of power metal. Continue reading »
