Legendary hardrock band Bloodgood has released a video for ‘In The Trenches’ the song is from the documentary “Trenches of Rock: The Metal Mission of Bloodgood.” The long-anticipated documentary is finally available on DVD & Blue Ray. The video can be viewed below.
This full-length documentary chronicles the 30-year history of the ‘Christian Metal’ band Bloodgood, who was targeted not only by a mainstream music industry that found their blatant use of faith-based lyrics unfitting with heavy metal, but also by religious extremists who believed their music was the work of the devil – confronted by death threats, picketers and protests throughout their career.
This project, which began in June 2012, is directed by Paul Michael Bloodgood and Annie Marie Bloodgood of Bloodygood Pictures, and produced executive by Oscar and Grammy winning director, James Moll (Foo Fighters: Back and Forth).
Bloodgood’s road was paved by conflict with mainstream music that found their blatant use of religious-based lyrics an unfitting marriage with heavy metal, as well as extreme conservatives who believed heavy metal was secular & from the devil. Seattle-based Bloodgood, led by bassist Michael Bloodgood & lead vocalist Les Carlsen, forged on undeterred for decades, continually spreading their positive message through their music, saving thousands of estranged teenagers & adults from their depression & thoughts of suicide – at the time an unheard of juxtaposition to the typical message of rock & roll. In The Trenches of Rock and Roll explores the depth of their ministry, the ensuing brotherhood & camaraderie of its band members, & the hardship & perseverance it takes to keep a rock band together for 3 decades.
Trenches includes in-depth interviews with many past & present Bloodgood members, openly sharing their individual perspectives, internal struggles, triumphs & tragedies, layered throughout reels of unseen archival footage, much of which were obtained from the personal collections of the band. Trenches is essential viewing for Bloodgood & rock & roll fans alike, as well as anyone who wants an up close look at what makes a historical band legendary.
