First formed in 2003, Bloodshot Dawn have evolved from a straight forward, groove orientated death metal band into a technically ferocious extreme metal outfit. Hailed by Terrorizer as a band that delivers “blistering live shows”, Bloodshot Dawn have become a household name in the UK underground.
In 2007 Bloodshot Dawn recorded and released their first effort in the form of “Coalition Of Terror”, a two track EP that received positive feedback both critically and around their local metal scene. The band then went on to win the 2009 “Metal To The Masses” competition, playing at Bloodstock Open Air Festival with the likes of influential bands such as Carcass, Arch Enemy and Kreator.
The band's current line up was solidified in late 2009 and they began preparing material for their follow up to “Coalition Of Terror”. This came in the form of the “Slaves To The Lie” EP, released in February 2011. This EP was self-financed and made available worldwide via all major online distribution websites. Bloodshot Dawn supported the release with tour dates in the UK, including gigs with Vader, Krisiun, and Cerebral Bore.
