Bless The Child

In the midst of a time where death metal bands are seemingly a dime a dozen, one Central Ohio act has stormed onto the scene and demanded their presence be noticed.

Enter Bless the Child. Bursting on to the scene in 2008, Bless the Child quickly gained a following with their unique mix of high intensity, brutality, and well-structured melody, a style of writing that becomes progressively more intricate and crushing with each new release.

Bless the Child is vocalist Brian “Jonesy” Jones, Mark Crumpler on guitar/vocals, Drake Tulloh on guitar, Mark Evans behind the kit, Derek Young on guitar, and Steve Shelini on bass. Born out of the desire for a more aggressive and intricate sound than what was being offered in today’s industry; recording comes easily to BTC, especially since they work with one of the best engineers/producers in the Tri-state area, Bobby Leonard at Paper Tiger Studios. Paper Tiger and Leonard are responsible for the demos that landed major label deals for bands Attack Attack, The Crimson Armada, and Of Mice and Men.

BTC’s unique sound continue to catch the attention of the right people and have been featured on Maritime’s Recording’s Monuments Compilation CD with acts like Bleeding Through, Meshuggah, Winds of Plague, God Forbid, All Shall Perish, Misery Signals and many more.

However, BTC is something that must be experienced live. Every time the band takes the stage, the energy and intensity brought by each member can be felt throughout the entire venue. BTC has graced the stage with acts such as The Black Dahlia Murder, Goatwhore, Marduk, Chimaira, The Human Abstract, MetalBlade recording artist Woe of Tyrants and others like The Crimson Armada, Terra Firma, and Miss May I. Artists that have played with Bless The Child have definitely taken notice of the band’s it-factor. . Johnny Rocket of Woe of Tyrants thinks BTC has what it takes. “Bless the Child is the Lance Armstrong of Ohio Metal. Intense drumming from the depths of hell, juicy guitar licks that will make you explore new parts of your body, and brutal vocals that keep you wanting more.” He expects BTC to be noticed.

Their new album Unveiling Retribution is scheduled to be released October 31, 2011.
