With heavy-hitters like Himsa and Champion leading the way, striving to be a successful, up-and-coming hardcore band in the Pacific Northwest these days is no easy task. Some might even say it’s a fruitless endeavor. Inked In Blood however, begs to differ. The boys of IIB refuse to back down to their predecessors and like a stubborn bulldog that fights when the odds are stacked against it, they proceed in the face of adversity.

In the Spring of 2004, Inked In Blood dropped a melodic hardcore bomb on an unsuspecting public with their release of the “Awakening Vesuvius” EP. It starts off with a little taste of the old school and then proceeds to become a melodic, metal masterpiece. With lyrics that reach far beyond the typical “teen angst” issues, IIB strives to reach their audiences with concepts such as humility, humanity, compassion and life as process, not as product. Critics say that Inked In Blood’s “Awakening Vesuvius” is five songs of pure energy, emotion, and in-your-face aggression and is easily one of the most intelligent, inspiring and hard-hitting releases to ever hit the streets of Portland. No doubt IIB has become the foam on the leading edge of the new hardcore swell.

With their motto of “hit ‘em hard and hit ‘em fast” Inked In Blood brings their most amazing attribute to the table; their live performance.
