ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The quality of this release is overwhelmingly tight in musicianship and production. Not one track is weak in the whole batch. This metal stew serves up a chockfull righteous in-yer-face goodness that refuses to let up. Replay-ability is necessary. Listen if you dare. Be changed upon hearing it. 5 out of 5 - Brad Snyder - The Phantom Tollbooth

Tourniquet has finally awakened and set free the behemoth Antiseptic Bloodbath. After nine years of silence, Tourniquet treats their listeners with the finest array of metal anyone could ask for. Kirkpatrick, the mastermind, organizes all of these ingredients to create ten tracks that consist of blistering percussion, perfectly-placed breakdowns, sweeping arpeggiation, beautiful melodies, amazing guitar solos and countless riffs that would have your grandma headbanging along. Antiseptic Bloodbath is a bizarrely beautiful masterpiece. If you don’t have it, go get it. If you do have it, run to the mirror and give yourself a congratulatory wink. You are a winner. 4.99999 out of 5 - Taylor C. – Indie Vision Music

When a band releases a few downright brilliant albums, they’re expected to make every proceeding album to be just as amazing, but in the case of Tourniquet, can they deliver? Let’s see… We expect TQT to be able to seamlessly weave jazzy rhythms and orchestral passages into their music. TQT has delivered with The Maiden Who Slept in the Glass Coffin and Lost Language of the Andamans. We expect TQT to lay down a strong groove. TQT has delivered with Chamunda Temple Stampede and Chart of the Elements. We expect TQT to provide intelligent thought provoking lyrics. TQT has delivered with Duplicitous Endeavor. We expect TQT to do something a little different each time, while still having the sound that we remember from the past. TQT has delivered with Fed by Ravens, Eaten by Vultures. We expect TQT to provide a solid slab of thrash. TQT has delivered with Antiseptic Bloodbath. The closing track, Fed by Ravens, Eaten by Vultures, is an absolute masterpiece, combining everything we have come to expect from Tourniquet. I don’t want to spoil all the surprises for you. I will however answer the question on everyone’s lips. Was it worth the wait? Yes, it has been worth the wait. 4.5 / 5 Rowland Gwynne – Untombed Magazine

The title track, ‘Antiseptic Bloodbath’, speaks of the way our society prefers to sanitize brutality. We can have our tidy Christian faith, or continue with no faith at all, as long as we don’t consider the painful bloody price that was paid for us.

“We use animals for our food, profit, and amusement, but would rather not know about the needless, often systematic suffering that is inflicted on them by a callous and greedy humanity. ‘Don’t upset my comfort zone — brutal truth, leave me alone.’ The great news is that we have the ability to choose. This album encourages us to make good and humane choices in our daily lives that reflect these images.”
