Singled Out: Heretic's Blood Will Tell

09/27/2013

Today Glenn Rogers from Heretic tells us about the new version of the song "Blood Will Tell" and the epic video, which comes from their brand new "Tortured And Broken" box set. Here is the story:

Blood Will Tell was recorded for Heretic's first Metal Blade release "Torture Knows No Boundary." When we reunited in 2011 it was one of the first songs on our list to work up. Full of energy it was always a fan favorite when we played live. At our shows it's always early in the set to get the audience going. From the opening riff it builds to a powerful punch, and never lets up. The song tells an interesting story of loyalty, betrayal, and back stabbing. The lyrics " The cuts been made." "Blood will tell." Paints a picture of revenge, and payback.

So in 2012 we started recording our latest cd for Metal On Metal Records "A Time Of Crisis." We thought we would re-record a couple of the old songs because we we're getting many request from the fans for the old records. So what we decided to do was record one song from "Torture Knows No Boundary" and one from the "Breaking Point" albums. We wanted to give them a modern sound, but keep the energy, and feel of the old recordings. One of the songs "Heretic" made it on to the "A Time Of Crisis" cd. For the song "Blood Will Tell" we decided to hold back. The idea was to have an extra song in the can in case something came up. So when we we're approached by Metal Blade Records to release the box set " Tortured And Broken" I thought it would be a great way to showcase the new lineup without over shadowing the original band members.

The re recorded version is a bit different from the original a few ways. First we lowered the key from E to D. We do this to create a heavier sound. A trick we learned from Black Sabbath. Tuning the guitars a whole step lower also helped with the vocal range so Julian didn't have to blow out his pipes singing so high. I also added some guitar solos between empty vocal spots. Another trick I picked up from the Scorpions. It adds a nice flavor to the song. The last thing was our drummer Iggy's performance. He added a ton of exciting chops, and energy to the track.

When Metal Blade released "Broken And Tortured" there was no thought of doing a promo video for it. So we thought it would be a great idea to do a simple video for promo. I then went to our management, and asked if they could throw something together to feature the song. What we got was a mini movie that looks like something from a major studio. Not the simple video I thought we we're going to get.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and check out the video, plus get a copy of the new box set right here!
