Created in 2001, the BloodSuit blends the heavy, dark guitar work of Ace Ubel with alternatingly melodic/ aggressive vocal stylings and their now infamous stage show. Vocalist C.R. Payne’s arcane visions are combined with the band’s innovative song structures, experimental sound interludes and thunderous percussion. The BloodSuit aims to bombard the senses with an audio/ visual assault derived from the modern human condition. Live shows often include slide projections, mechanical props, biological materials and atmospheric lighting effects. Having been referred to as “metal, goth and punk”, the BloodSuit defies categorization and presents an original and innovative assemblage of live music performance which transcends the borders that define art genres.
That was then.
The BloodSuit disbanded in 2005 after two members decided to 'get a life'? After several new members failed to make the grade, Ace Ubel returned to play bass and Dirty Dave took over on guitar. The result has been electrifying. The BloodSuit is now a heavy band for the ages, oozing destruction from its very core. A new set, a new show, and NOTHING you've seen or heard before.
