Brutal Symphonic Death Metal.
Crushing 8-string guitars, blast beats, double kicks, and snarling bass set the foundation for Blood Thirsty. Guttural growls, high shrieks, and shredding guitar solos focus the listener in while the symphony orchestra and choirs fill the air with epic, haunting atmosphere. Each song has a life of its own with lyrics influenced by the Holy Scriptures. Multi-insrumentalist, Derek Corzine (Whisper from Heaven, Syringe, Cosÿns, ex-Bloodline Severed), started Blood Thirsty with Rev. James Rich in the mid-late 90's. The music has been compared to the likes of Fleshgod Apocalypse, Suffocation, Dimmu Borgir, Cannibal Corpse, Meshuggah, and Extol as it is described as brutal and beautiful.
The 11-track full-length debut album "Sanguine River Absolution" will be released Summer 2014
Blood Thirsty... being thirsty for Christ's blood to wash away our sins. There is no remission of sin without the shedding of blood, hence the need for animal sacrifice in days of old. But Christ has come into the world to fulfill that law, being the perfect sinless sacrifice once for all mankind. For God loved us so much that He gave His only Son that whoever would believe (rely on, trust in, cling to) in Him, would not perish but receive life eternal. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.
