The initial idea for the punishing old school death metal assault that would become
Bloodstrike was first conceived by guitarist Jeff Alexis (ex-Silencer) and vocalist
Holly Wedel (ex-Nexhymn) in 2013. They recruited Joe Piker (ex-Dripfed) on guitar,
Ryan Alexander Bloom (ex-Havok) on drums to round out the band and began developing
a collection of massive riffs and crushing arrangements. Bloodstrike’s veteran lineup
exploded onto the Denver metal scene in June of 2014 with their three-track Necrobirth
demo. The demo gained instant popularity with the death metal underground and drew
comparisons to bands like Bolt Thrower and Entombed for both its ear-catching simplicity
and blood-curdling heaviness. Impressed by the success of the demo and the work
ethic of the band members, Redefining Darkness Records signed Bloodstrike to its
roster in September of 2015 and quickly released their debut album In Death We
Rot. After a successful round of touring and writing in 2016, the band went back
into the studio in the spring of 2017 to record their second full-length album,
Execution of Violence.
