Biography

Los Angeles, United States (2003 – present)

As Blood Runs Black is an American band from Los Angeles, California formed in 2003. They are signed to Mediaskare Records on which they released their debut album, Allegiance on June 6, 2006 [666]. Their album along with extensive touring in the United States brought considerable success making the band a well-known act. Their influences range from Melodic Death Metal to Metalcore.

During 2007’s The Summer Slaughter Tour, drummer Lech was kicked out the band due to personal differences with the other members. He was replaced with Ryan Thomas from the band The Serpent Son. This event led to some serious online bashing from fans, as Lech was their only remaining founding member who in fact recruited the other members of the Allegiance lineup, and wrote much of Allegiance’s material beforehand. This also brought dismay to the fans as Allegiance was mostly noted by Lech’s unique and extremely technical drumming style.

In 2008, vocalist (Chris) and guitarist (Sal) left the band to settle down and after their departure Lech was recruited back into the band. Later In 2009, lead guitarist (Ernie) decides to leave the band to settle down and pursue school. In 2010, Lech recruited Greg Kirkpatrick (Gift of Prophecy), Daniel Sugarman (Fallen Figure) and Sonik Garcia (Fallen Figure).

Their second album entitled “Instinct” was released March 15th, 2011.

    The other albums aren't bad but they're nowhere near as good as Allegiance.

    I used to listen to Allegiance all the time back in 2006. I totally moved away from this style of metal but I still dig Allegiance. Was wondering is they put out anything since then. Now from what people are saying, I'm better off just sticking with the debut. Though If anyone can find there demos that would be sick. I got one be for the debut came out back in the day but lost it. It was killer though...

    Their first album is the only one worth listening to. Deathcore classic.

    Is the new album worth listening to or would I be better off sticking to Allegiance?

    I saw them live and I gotta say that Chris, the new vocalist, is a fucking beast, mostly because he can hold a scream for like 20 seconds and he never runs out of breath, he's now one of my favorite vocalists

    All the other shit aside I really dig the new album. I mean it's not groundbreaking or anything, but it's not like they ever were to begin with. The clean vocals are very downplayed and definitely fit what they got going on, then again I'm not terrified of anything that's not teh brootals.

    The new album is quite good, much better than Instinct...but it gets cheesy at times.

    Что вы блять несете??? Новый альбом лучше инстинкта? Вы совсем пизданулись дружно или просто в уши долбитесь?

    Why the hell did they have to stick that incredibly awful, weak clean vocals to some of the songs ???
