BONDED BY BLOOD were set to record their debut album with producer MICHAEL
ROSEN, the band and fans alike were understandably excited. Having
previously worked with thrash legends such as TESTAMENT and VIO-LENCE, ROSEN
was an obvious choice for producing the fast-rising thrashers' furious debut
album, FEED THE BEAST.
Unbeknownst to many, the recording sessions with MICHAEL ROSEN were scrapped
and the band opted to re-record the album with a different studio and
BONDED BY BLOOD vocalist JOSE "ALADDIN" BARRALES explains what happened and
why they chose to re-record FEED THE BEAST: "It was weird... Everytime we
got in the studio, everything sounded good, but there were a lot of problems
where we clashed... He kept bringing up Green Day and bands like that, that
we should sound a little bit more like. I mean, I have nothing against
those bands, it's just, it's not us."
BARRALES continues, "It was lacking energy. It was lacking a lot of stuff
really, it just wasn't the same, it wasn't our songs... There were a lot of
essential songs like 'Immortal Life' and 'Feed The Beast' that we were
really used to and we really liked the way they were, and he really changed
a lot of stuff that we really didn't like."
