‘Ted Kirkpatrick’ Drum-Cam Footage From ‘Antiseptic Bloodbath’ Recording Sessions


Video footage of Ted Kirkpatrick of Christian metallers Tourniquet laying down the drums for the song Chart Of The Elements during the recording sessions for the band’s new album, Antiseptic Bloodbath, can be seen below.

Antiseptic Bloodbath was released earlier this year via Pathogenic Records. The CD features guest guitar solos by Marty Friedman [ex-Megadeth], Karl Sanders [Nile], Pat Travers, Bruce Franklin [Trouble] and Santiago Dobles [Aghora]. 

The Antiseptic Bloodbath cover artwork was created by Travis Smith of Seempieces, who has previously worked with Opeth, Devin Townsend, Nevermore, Ice Earth, Death, Amorphis, among many others.

Commented Tourniquet: “About the cover — the figure of Jesus: Flogging was part of the crucifixion process under Roman law. The whip used had multiple strands of leather with chunks of metal and bone embedded in each strand.As the prisoner was flogged, fist the skin would be battered, bruised and torn, and then the whip would start digging into the tissue below the skin until the flogging victim’s skin was torn and hanging from their body in ribbons. The cover image is an artistic depiction, and as so a certain amount of license must be allowed for. While bones can be seen on the Christ figure on our cover, that shouldn’t be misconstrued as being a rotting Christ. It’s a depiction of the brutality endured by Jesus.

“Isaiah 52:14 – Just as there were many who were appalled at him, his appearance was so disfigured beyond that of any human being and his form marred beyond human likeness.”
