Previous praise for Blood Command:
“Funeral Beach is the sort of album you hear and think ‘Holy Scheisse’, Blood Command, where have you been all my life?” – Kerrang (5/5)
“Blood Command have combined driving anthemia, lacerating stabs of guitar-hammering ferocity, thunderous percussive workouts and a vocalist capable of carrying both a pristine melodic hook and a glass-shattering scream, to produce a body of work which simply screams ‘rock stars’.”
– Rock Sound
“Blood Command have the uncanny ability to sound startlingly fresh and new, while never jumping too far to land on that dreaded island of ‘quirky’. Funeral Beach is a fiercely unique, invigorating slab of catchy punk’n’roll, and it demands your full, ongoing attention.” – Metal Hammer (9/10)
“In reality, where only good jams matter, Blood Command is fucking awesome!” – Metalsucks
Blood Command have premiered the first single and title track from their forthcoming album ‘Cult Drugs’, with Upset.
Speaking about the single the band said, “‘Cult Drugs’ is about the reasons you think you have to do or mean something. The eternal chase for acceptance and glory lurking behind your words and appearance. Everybody’s got a secret agenda. Trust no one!”
After two albums, numerous EPs and four radio hits, Blood Command are more hungry for success than ever. Their sound still has the distinct fingerprint of producer and songwriter Yngve Andersen: sharp enough to challenge, but wide enough that you’ll want to throw your hands in the air and run into the crowd. Since the last album, Andersen has received widespread recognition as a successful producer and is responsible for several monster hits. But Blood Command remains his favourite pet.
Blood Command’s reappearance shows a band that has never sounded as good as now. Singer Karina Ljone is angrier and more accurate than ever, the ninja-riffing is smoother and drummer Sigurd Haakaas sets new standards in action-drumming. It all comes with a relentless sting of murderous hooks. If this sounds strange, That’s because you have not heard the album yet!
Blood Command’s third album Cult Drugs is due out April 28th on Fysisk Format.
In 2017 Blood Command will make their return with an album packed with grandiose hits.
The band’s last album ‘Funeral Beach’ from 2012 boasts 5/5 in Kerrang (which also placed them at no. 8 in their year end list), 9/10 in Rock Sound, 5/6 in VG, BA, BT, and P3, to name a few. Metal Hammer gave the band a 9/10, saying that the band is one of the best they have heard in recent years. In 2010, Blood Command were also nominated for a Norwegian Grammy for their debut album ‘Ghostclocks’.
Blood command have played numerous festivals like Roskilde, Nova Rock in Austria where they shared the stage with, among others, Iron Maiden, and The Great Escape in Brighton, where they won the “Best Concert of the Year” in Artrocks Magazine. The band have regularly placed Europe at their feet and have toured alongside the likes of Biffy Clyro and Protest the Hero among others.
