Bloodgood - Metal Missionaries Demo + 4 Bonus Tracks (CD) 2021 Remaster
When Bloodgood’s self-titled full-length debut stormed out of the gates in 1986 on Frontline Records, the Christian metal world rejoiced upon hearing this potent and thrilling mix of the killer riffs of David Zaffiro, the pulsating bass of Michael Bloodgood, the pounding drums of JT Taylor, all buoyed up by the melodic and barnstorming impact of vocalist Les Carlsen. The album, produced by blues rocker Darrell Mansfield, showed the band’s clear conviction for Christ and its solid Biblical lyrics. But attacks came from the mainstream metal industry who balked at using Christian lyrics wed to metal music, and religious extremists branded the band’s music the work of the devil. The band soldiered on in the trenches of rock lighting a fire of trailblazing work that impacted many for Christ.
