An eerie mix of modern rock and alternative neoclassical melodies - Sangriento is where metal meets experimental, dripping in blood.
The story behind Sangriento began in 2010 when bassist Nic and ex-drummer Ryu began playing covers of power metal legends X Japan. Finding like-minded musicians to cover these technically demanding songs was not easy, and Sangriento went through a large number of lineup changes even as they found great success as a cover band and began writing original material.
Sangriento then jumped back into action as one of nine bands selected nationwide for the annual Noise Music Mentorship Programme in 2015, training under the guidance of Brandon Khoo. Sangriento also emerged as the national champions of the Yamaha Asian Beat competition, and represented Singapore at the grand finals in Tokyo on 4th December 2015, before embarking on a short tour in the Tokyo live house scene and releasing a single, "Wanderer". In 2016, Sangriento released a debut EP, "Ghosts of the Past", and made another tour of the Tokyo live house scene to promote this EP.
Sangriento embarked on a full-length concept album in 2017, returning to its early power metal and symphonic metal influences, while not losing the focus on groove and melody honed during the production of "Ghosts of the Past". The new album, "Blood Pact", was released on January 24th, 2019.
