Boston heavy metal unit Blood Lightning (with members of Gozu, Sam Black Church, Worshipper, We’re All Gonna Die) teams up with Invisible Oranges to present their new video »The Dying Starts«. Their self-titled debut album will be issued on October 20th through Ripple Music.
“Blood Lightning doesn’t just have a great name–they’ve got the heavy metal to back it up. (…) »The Dying Starts« lays out Blood Lightning’s thesis with remarkable straightforwardness: each riff packs a punch and ties into a melodic throughline along with vocalist Jim Healey’s emphatic delivery.” – Invisible Oranges

Comprising members of Gozu, Sam Black Church, Worshipper and We’re All Gonna Die, the band was formed with one thing in mind: get back to the real essence of heavy metal. No pretense. No subgenres to fit into. Only badass, straightforward, hard-hitting heavy metal with a nod to old-school NWOBHM with contemporary firepower. They teamed up with award-winning producer and engineer Benny Grotto (Rolling Stones, Aerosmith), and mastering legend Alan Douches (Motörhead, Mastodon, High On Fire) to record five original songs and one Black Sabbath cover, for what would become their thunderous self-titled debut album. Check out their latest video for »Blankets«!
Formed in December 2020, Blood Lightning brings together the talents of vocalist Jim Healey (We’re All Gonna Die), guitarist Doug Sherman (Gozu), bassist Bob Maloney (Worshipper) and drummer J.R. Roach (Sam Black Church). What began as a 2019 Halloween show playing the entire Black Sabbath »Born Again« album just for fun has culminated in the release of original material by four veterans of the Boston metal/hardcore community. The band recently signed with acclaimed stoner/doom/metal label Ripple Music for the release of their self-titled debut album this fall.
