Old style dirty-rotten-unpolished Swedish Death Metal the way it was truly meant!
BLOOD MORTIZED was founded by vocalist Mattias Parkkila and guitar player Benny Moberg in Stockholm, Sweden in late 2007. The music is constructed and de-constructed by veterans of the Swedish old school death metal scene.
In April 2008 guitarist Anders Biazzi (formerly Hansson) joined the band, followed by drummer Mattias Borgh in late August 2008. After having inked a deal with Vrykoblast Productions, BLOOD MORTIZED recorded their self-titled debut album which was unleashed upon the world in April 2009. In early 2010 Moberg left the band. As a trio BLOOD MORTIZED recorded the enormously critically acclaimed BESTIAL EP.
In February 2011 Gustav Myrin joined the ranks as the new second guitar player and in June Mattias Söderlund was drafted as the new bass player. Currently signed to FDA Rekotz and Chaos Records BLOOD MORTIZED are now recording their sophomore album entitled The Key To A Black Heart which will be released in November 2011. The album is, as the BESTIAL EP, once again recorded and produced by drummer Mattias Borgh at Underworld Recording.
