London, Ontario-based metal band Baptized in Blood first got my attention when they released their song Last Line Lady as a free download. Their self-titled debut Baptized In Blood features pummeling double bass, melodic leads and enough crunch to get even the most discriminating head banging. Skeptical? Scroll to the bottom and listen for yourself.
When it was announced that they would be hitting the road with Cancer Bats and DevilDriver, I made it a point to get there early to check these guys out live. I later learned that BiB took an unusual approach to putting together their set list … six tunes selected from the comfort of their tour van based upon the shirts people in line were wearing. Unfortunately I must have been wearing the wrong shirt because they missed a couple of my favorites, but I was certainly not complaining after being blasted by a band I am sure that you will be hearing more of.
I caught up with front man Johl Fendley after their set to learn a little more about the band. Hit the play button below to hear the interview which includes their connection to metal legend Dave Mustaine.
