Combining intense incendiary live shows that will leave you drenched in awe; with richly textured powerful compositions that transcend the normal metal style, there’s no doubting Bloodroot is an intense band. In their twelve year career they have risen from the ashes like a phoenix. Soared to the top in their region time after time just waiting to be discovered like a diamond in the rough, there i...s no stopping this entity. Bloodroot’s songs will clench you by the throat, infect your soul and pulverize you into reality. The experiences they’ve gained in the Midwest metal scene and their constant effort to be determined, has metamorphosised them into driven song writers. The four piece who’s members consist of Max Mcallister(vocals), Kris Smith(guitars), Jeff Naffziger(bass), and Rory Butler(drums). Hailing from Peoria, Illinois and formed in 1998, Bloodroot has opened for a multitude of national acts, Disturbed, Soil, Pissing Razors, Quiet Riot, Skinlab and Mudvayne just to name a few. The best way to describe Bloodroot is a true American metal band. Taking influence from all genres of metal, and blurring the line between extreme and commercial, Like a well planned attack, there is no box you can properly pigeon hole Bloodroot into. Massive guitars, intense vocals, catchy choruses with pounding bass and drums are what make up the core sound of Bloodroot. Always striving to reinvent themselves and give their audience 100% is what keeps Bloodroot motivated to deliver. With one full length LP recorded early in their career and several demo’s later, this brutal foursome is ready to conquer anything in the future that will help the band continue to succeed. In 2011 Bloodroot took a hiatus for 2 years, and are back in 2013 with new Bass player Jeff Naffziger. Bloodroot is currently working on material for a new album, and is hitting the stage once again!
