BLOOD MORTIZED Bio:
BLOOD MORTIZED was founded by vocalist Mattias Parkkila and guitarist Benny Moberg in Stockholm, Sweden in late 2007. In April 2008 guitarist Anders Biazzi (formely Hansson) joined the band, followed by drummer Mattias Borgh in late August 2008. After having inked a deal with Vrykoblast Productions, BLOOD MORTIZED recorded their self-titled debut which was unleashed upon the world in April 2009. In early 2010 guitarist Moberg left the band.
As a trio, BLOOD MORTIZED recorded the enormously critically acclaimed Bestial EP, which was released as a three track cassette on Nocturnal Blood Records and later on as a four track CD and a vinyl version in the works via Chaos Records.
The Bestial EP featured eye popping artwork by world renowned tattoo artist Thomas Kynst and was recorded and produced by drummer Mattias Borgh at Underworld Recording. In February 2011 Gustav Myrin joined the ranks as the new second guitar player and in June Mattias Söderlund was drafted as the new bass player.
