Biography

Steamrolling and rumbling Death Metal. Drawing influence from Florida, Sweden and their heritage, these Dutchmen distinguish themselves with aggressive death metal mixing modern and classic styles. Cavernous deep roaring vocals, heavy slow crawling dirges and up-tempo psychotic slaughtering providing heavy listening that hits you in the chest and to bang your skull heavy!

BLOODPHEMY was created in 2000 and is based in Amersfoort (NL). In 2002 they released the album ‘SECTION 8’. Shortly after they disbanded, only to be revived in 2015. Since then they released EP ‘BLOOD WILL TELL’ (2016), album ‘BLOODLINE’ (2017) and album ‘IN COLD BLOOD’ (2019).

Since 2015 BLOODPHEMY is crushing stages in GERMANY, LUXEMBURG, CZECH REPUBLIC, AUSTRIA, CROATIA, POLAND, SLOVAKIA and THE NETHERLANDS on festivals like CZECH DEATH FEST (CZ), KALTENBACH OPEN AIR (AUS), HEADBANGERS BASH (NL), FUCK THE COMMERCE (GER), GOTHOOM (SLO), MAD FEST (PL), STONEHENGE (NL), EINDHOVEN
