‘This is a song from Matthew, Chapter 2 in the Bible that speaks of the Magi and the birth of Jesus. Has a couple familiar spots in it for most people including my beautiful wife, Amulyn, singing the ending! Also has my 11-year-old niece, Mercedie, singing the intro and my twin nephews JJ & Josh as well as two girls in my neighborhood and my former bass player’s daughter singing as part of a children’s choir at the beginning.This music is used as a ministry to reach people for Jesus so any support and prayer is deeply appreciated. It helps me continue to put crazy music out there that people in dark places need to hear! God bless and Merry Christmas!’ Derek

Blood Thirsty‘s full-length debut album “Sanguine River Absolution” has been released on July 8th. and is distributed by Metalhelm. 

Crushing 8-string guitars, blast beats, double kicks, and snarling bass set the foundation for Blood Thirsty. Guttural growls, high shrieks, and shredding guitar solos focus the listener in while the symphony orchestra and choirs fill the air with epic, haunting atmosphere. Each song has a life of its own with lyrics influenced by the Holy Scriptures. Blood Thirsty is the project of multi-insrumentalist, Derek Corzine (Whisper from Heaven, Syringe, Cosÿns, ex-Bloodline Severed). He started Blood Thirsty with Rev. James Rich in the mid-late 90’s. The music has been compared to the likes of Fleshgod Apocalypse, Suffocation, Dimmu Borgir, Cannibal Corpse, Meshuggah, and Extol as it is described as brutal and beautiful.

Blood Thirsty... being thirsty for Christ’s blood to wash away our sins. There is no remission of sin without the shedding of blood, hence the need for animal sacrifice in days of old. But Christ has come into the world to fulfill that law, being the perfect sinless sacrifice once for all mankind. For God loved us so much that He gave His only Son that whoever would believe (rely on, trust in, cling to) in Him, would not perish but receive life eternal. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.

“Sanguine River Absolution” album review quote:

‘With projects like this, the inevitable question around what bands do they sound like since it’s a new band that isn’t widely known.  My ears hear a mix of Broken Flesh, Cannibal Corpse, Extol, I Built the Cross, Dimmu Borgir, Abated Mass of Flesh, Mourn In Silence, Seperatist, and I would imagine many other cool bands listeners will know. Notice that this is a mix of those bands, the overall sound of Blood Thirsty stands on its own.’
