At this point, not much needs to be said about vocalist Patrik Johansson, who by now has earned his place as the voice of the band
Interview with Bloodbound founder and keyboard player Fredrik Bergh
With a belly full of grog and a parrot on my shoulder to record the conversation, we sail the seven seas in search of a rowdy, raucous, rambunctious bunch of ne’er do wells that go by the collective name of Alestorm.
Sabaton, Alestorm and Bloodbound teamed up for a eleven date UK tour billed as ‘Heroes on Tour’ .
How time flies… Swedish power metal band Bloodbound were founded by Fredrik Bergh (Keyboards) and Tomas Olsson (Guitars) in 2004
Having waited a long time to see this excellent power metal outfit, it was definitely a show not to be missed but, due to family and work commitments Fredrik Bergh, Pelle Akerlind and Henrik Olsson would not be performing. It was therefore with some trepidation that I descended the steps of the Underworld to watch them. Would they be able to deliver? Lets see..
Swedish power metal band Bloodbound can certainly be unpredictable, from their early years of constant lineup changes (in particular they went through three singers over their first four albums, with Urban Breed actually joining and leaving the band twice, appearing on their debut and third album,) to the constant style shifts they’ve gone through, starting with their third album Tabula Rasa. One thing that’s always been true, is that all of their albums to date have delivered some entertaining and epic metal songs
I just try to be as honest as possible and sing what I feel after I’ve put myself in the “mindset of the song”. Then when it comes down to the final touches, at least for this album, I weighed in Pelle’s and Daniel’s wishes too. So the title track, for instance, has me singing it slightly more aggressively than I personally wanted it. I wanted to sing it just like I sang the last chorus.
