Blood Command

Bilde av bandet

For 10 years and running Blood Command has given a voice to outcasts worldwide through their knife-sharp rock and kamikaze pop hooks. Through appearances on Warped tour, Roskilde- and Download festivals, on tours with Rolo Tomassi and Comeback Kid or through their three albums, Blood Command has formed an unbreakable alliance with their audience that wins over new loyal members every day. The sound still has the distinct fingerprint of producer and songwriter Yngve Andersen: sharp enough to challenge, but wide enough that you'll want to throw your hands in the air and run into the crowd. 

Blood Command's 2017 album Cult Drugs got rave reviews in relevant European punk and metal press like Metal Hammer (9/10), Rush on Rock (10/10), Ox Magazine (9/10) and Already Heard (5/5). Rock Sound gave the album 8/10 and described it as “One of this world’s best kept secrets” before following up with a panegyric feature that straight out stated: This is why Blood Command is such a special band. BBC1's Rock show played several of the album's singles and the Norwegian national radio playlisted no less than three tracks from the album.

The band's second album Funeral Beach from 2012 boasts 5/5 in Kerrang (which also placed them at no. 8 in their year end list), 9/10 in Rock Sound, 5/6 in VG, BA, BT, and P3, to name a few. Metal Hammer UK gave the band a 9/10, saying that the band is one of the best they have heard in recent years. In 2010, Blood Command was nominated for a norwegian Grammy for their debut album Ghostclocks.

The band have regularly placed Europe at their feet and have done support tours for Biffy Clyro and Protest the Hero among others.
