BLOODORN, a new Power Metal band led by SIRENIA’s lead guitarist Nils Courbaron, has signed a worldwide record deal with REAPER ENTERTAINMENT. The band was formed in 2020 during the pandemic. SILENT WINTER vocalist Mike Livas, FREEDOM CALL bassist Francesco Saverio Ferraro and SIRENIA drummer Michael Brush joined the band after hearing the first demos of the album.
Influenced by bands such as GAMMA RAY, ANGRA and BEAST IN BLACK, the band also draws on some elements from the Extreme Metal scene. BLOODORN’s music is very fast and technical, sometimes even brutal, but also very melodic and catchy: Extreme Power Metal!
The name BLOODORN is a play on words from the Viking torture method “Blôdörn” (better known as “Blood Eagle”) and “Blood”. In the band’s universe, the Bloodorn is like a Reaper – a monster ready to kill and destroy everything in its path. For this reason, the band has signed a worldwide record deal with Reaper Entertainment.
Nils Courbaron comments: “During the first wave of the pandemic, I felt like it was the right time for me to start my own band. I wanted to make something melodic, fast, catchy and also brutal! BLOODORN was born and became my priority. I was looking for the right label to release our debut album and I’m over the moon to be working with Reaper.I’m very happy to be working with such a good team and I’m sure we’ll create something great when we work together!”
Flori from Reaper Entertainment adds: “When Nils played the album for me, I was immediately excited about it. High-speed Power Metal, interspersed with modern and brutal parts. I had never heard anything like it before and knew immediately that we had to release it through Reaper. Especially since the Reaper and the BLOODORN are obviously the same character… haha. Look forward to a unique album with a lot of melody, but also extreme heaviness! Welcome to the family, BLOODORN!”
BLOODORN is about the fight against oppression, authority and tyranny, but also about dark gothic fantasy, shadow cults, war, inner strength, honour, Norse mythology and even some video game references. All of these concepts are reinforced by BLOODORN’s stateside image and outfits.
Formed by experienced musicians from the Power Metal scene, BLOODORN is not a side project and is more than ready to take the stage and release the new album.
