Canada's 3 INCHES OF BLOOD have a completed work on a new set of demos with producer Joey Jordison of SLIPKNOT fame. According to Roadrunner Records A&R man Mike Gitter, the recordings "are clearly a kick in the ass to anything the BLOOD have done to date. Thrashier, angrier and heavier than prior BLOOD works — think classic METALLICA, old-school KREATOR, and that old reliable standbye: JUDAS PRIEST's 'Painkiller', all rolled up into one. And, if anything, the trademark, trade-off screams, air-raid melodies and caustic catterwhauls of spectacularly bearded Viking Cam Pipes and his cohort in vocal terrorism, Jamie Hooper, have only grown more intense."

The demos — which were recorded in Seattle and engineered by none other than Jack Endino (NIRVANA, SOUNDGARDEN) — also are the first recording by the 3 INCHES OF BLOOD touring lineup of bassist Brian Redman, guitarists Shane Clarke and Justin Hagberg, and drummer Alexei Rodriguez. New songtitles include "Night Marauders", "Goatriders' Horde", "Assassins of the Light" and "Black Spire". Joey has also signed on to produce the next 3 INCHES OF BLOOD opus, to be recorded in the fall. An early 2007 release is expected.
