In their early careers, members of COLOSSUS were in several formidable punk rock acts, but thankfully came to their senses and embraced their irrepressible youthful metal roots.
Now, armed with guitars and beer they are storming across the tundra of central North Carolina to conquer the world. Colossus sound as if they were actually taking part in the original NWOBHM scene alongside SAXON, DIAMOND HEAD, IRON MAIDEN and ANGEL WITCH in 1982, but cosmically (and fortunately for us) slipped through a wormhole winding up in 2010.
Drunk On Blood spiritedly follows on the heels of their debut album, …And The Rift Of The Pan Dimensional Under-Gods, and only further expands on their love of classic heavy metal, fantasy, folklore, zombies, science fiction and ultimately laying waste to any and all who catch their enthusiastic and sweat-filled live shows.
Drunk On Blood is for people who like to party and remember what it was like to make music for fun. When listening to Drunk On Blood your knobs most definitely should be cranked to 11.
The Drunk On Blood EP will be released on August 10th on Tribunal Records.
The EP features the following tracklisting:
‘The Mountain That Rides’
‘Kill More Better’
‘A Year Later (There Is Still Meat Left In The Skull)’
