Biography

Bloodshot Dawn is a melodic death/thrash metal band from Portsmouth, Hampshire, UK.

The band consists of:

Josh McMorran - Vocals/Lead Guitar
Benjamin Ellis - Lead Guitar/Backing Vocals
Doug Anderson - Drums/Vocals
Anthony Ridout - Bass

After a number of line up changes and endless practice honing their sound, band members Anderson and McMorran recorded and released their first effort in the form of “Coalition Of Terror”, a two track EP that received positive feedback both critically and around their local metal scene.

Driven by this success, Anderson and McMorran sought out other musicians for a full time line up that could add to their brutal live shows and match the technical precision on the EP. This lead them to bassist Anthony Ridout who joined the band just after the release. Following this the band then set about playing across the UK in support of the EP, and went on to win the 2009 “Metal To The Masses” competition, playing at Bloodstock Open Air Festival with the likes of influential bands such as Carcass, Arch Enemy and Kreator.

The band now looked to record more material, recruiting Benjamin Ellis on lead guitar to complete the current line up in late 2009. Following a string of gigs in the UK, Bloodshot Dawn set about recording their follow up to “Coalition Of Terror” in 2010. This came in the form of their “Slaves To The Lie” EP, released in February 2011. This EP was self financed and made available worldwide via all major distribution websites.

    Can't wait to see these guys in Manchester at the Wintersun gig. Looking forward to seeing these as much as Wintersun if truth be told. The best of modern English metal!
