Summon: How did the band get started?
Anders: BLOOD MORTIZED was founded by 2 of my friends Mattias Parkkila and Benny Moberg back in 2007. I joined in later that year , It was like a hobby project at the beginning, but after we got a record deal it started to get more serious. Later Mattias Borgh came in as the drummer. After a few years Benny left the band , some personal stuff was the issue. Now we have got a new guitarist named Gustav Myrin and a base player named Mattias Söderlund.
Summon: What kind of music do you play?
Anders: We play Swedish Old School Death metal whit a new touch. We are trying to get our own thing in to the old school sound and I think we have done that, I hate when people compare us with Entombed. It’s an insult to me, okay we have some riffs that sounds like other Swedish bands
but not Entombed, its like a band they take out of the blue because they‘re one of the most known Swedish bands. Take the Bestial EP for example
1.Bestial : have an own style with a little Unleashed
2.Of Dust and Doom : own style, never been done in Swedish Death metal
3.Shadows of the Quarter Sun : own style with Dismember influence
4.Rekviem : a Celtic Frost – Bolt Thrower style
As I said we are trying to do the Old School thing with a big touch of Blood Mortized. hahahahahahaha!
Summon: How has the fan response been? ¨
Anders: The fans has responded good to this ,if they had not, I would not be standing here. It’s the thing , if you get a lot of good response you’ll get driven to do good music! If you get no response you can put your instruments on the shelf.

Its more like an experimental song, a really heavy song in the veins of Hellhammer and Celtic Frost , this is the Heaviest song we done up to date Shadow Of The Quarter Sun: is a more faster song with some Dismember influence riffing and a creepy solo hahaha.
