‘Bruce Franklin’, ‘Marty Friedman’ To Guest On New ‘Tourniquet’ Album


Christian metallers Tourniquet will release a new album, Antiseptic Bloodbath, this summer via Pathogenic Records. The CD will feature guest guitar solos by Marty Friedman [ex-Megadeth], Karl Sanders [Nile], Pat TraversBruce Franklin [Trouble] and Santiago Dobles [Aghora].

A teaser trailer for the CD can be seen below. Also available is the album’s cover artwork, which was created by Travis Smith of Seempieces [Opeth, Devin Townsend, Nevermore, Iced Earth, Death, Amorphis].

Commented Tourniquet: “The title track, ‘Antiseptic Bloodbath’, speaks of the way our society prefers to sanitize brutality. We can have our tidy Christian faith, or continue with no faith at all, as long as we don’t consider the painful bloody price that was paid for us.

“We use animals for our food, profit, and amusement, but would rather not know about the needless, often systematic suffering that is inflicted on them by a callous and greedy humanity. ‘Don’t upset my comfort zone — brutal truth, leave me alone.’ The great news is that we have the ability to choose. This album encourages us to make good and humane choices in our daily lives that reflect these images.”

Tourniquet‘s last studio release, 2003’s Where Moth and Rust Destroy [Metal Blade], featured special guest appearances by guitarists Marty Friedman [ex-Megadeth] and Bruce Franklin [Trouble].
