FLORIDA’S BLOODBATHER RELEASE SILENCE EP TODAY VIA RISE RECORDS
BAND DROPS FUTURISTIC + FRENETIC “ERASE” VIDEO — WATCH
“a rising industrial-flavored metalcore duo in the line of genre-pushing acts” —Revolver
“And when the revolution happens, you can be sure Bloodbather will be right there on the frontline” — Louder Sound
“a stellar example of no-frills, no-filler all-fury metalcore spliced with elements of hardcore, deathcore and industrial atmosphere to give the listener just under 20 minutes of non-stop insanity” —New Transcendence
Broward County, Florida-based metal band Bloodbather — Kyler Millo [vocals, bass] and Salem Vex [guitar, synths] — are releasing their new EP Silence today via Rise Records. The band just dropped the futuristic and frenetic video for “Erase.” Watch it here.
“Collectively, this is our favorite song,” the band says. “We wanted the video to almost be a satire of some hyper-masculine behaviors. The song itself is a very expressive way of being bigger than someone in many different ways but feeling insecure still — regardless of these shallow ego buffs.”

Bloodbather were recently christened an “Artist You Need To Know” by Revolver, which lauded the band’s ability to craft “nasty, gnarly metallic hardcore rendered all the more suffocating by layers of industrial texture” and featured them in a multi-page spread. Formed in 2018, Bloodbather stormed out of the gates with the independent EP Pressure. The release has since amassed 666k Spotify streams — how metal! — as the group built its live reputation by sharing the stage with everyone from Whitechapel to Carnifex to Of Mice & Men, and by appearing at the notable This Is Hardcore festival.
Bloodbather enjoyed early praise from the tastemakers at Invisible Oranges, who stated that the band “swings their music like a battle-axe into naysayer faces, living up to their namesake with flying crimson colors.” They earned additional acclaim from SVBTERRANEAN, which proclaimed them “one of the newer bands to embrace and reformulate the angst-ridden, chunky metalcore of old, and one of the newer bands to do it right.” Bloodbather signed with Rise Records in 2019 and subsequently hit the studio in Tennessee alongside producer Tate Mercer [Better Off, Chamber, Hampton].
Armed with a take-no-prisoners approach and an EP that leaves an indelible mark, Bloodbather are on the verge of becoming one of heavy metal’s next big things. The band most certainly appeals to fans of Code Orange, Knocked Loose, and Vein.
