Bloody Times is a heavy metal band founded by songwriter and bassist Simon Pfundstein. He created several songs and recorded demos all alone until early 2016, influenced by his favorite bands Manowar, Iced Earth, Running Wild, Savatage, Judas Priest and other classics. Ready to move on, he wanted to make more than a demo album and decided to look for a drummer capable of giving the songs their full potential. The choice was Raphael Saini, who already played and recorded with Iced Earth in the album Plagues of Babylon.Raphael stepped in for one session, supporting the project with his drum recordings for the album THE FIRE OF IMMORTALITY, which is the first album of Bloody Times.The motivation and purpose of doing this album was to pay tribute to classic heavy metal, and of course to continue and contribute to its existence. Simon dedicated it to his parents, who introduced him into metal music as young boy, and he dedicated it to Manowar and all former members, for many albums and years of true metal. As Manowar-fans probably can see, the album cover (which was created by a very talented Manowar-fan, by the way) reflects this dedication and the spirit of heavy metal very well.To make the album real, Simon not only played bass, but also trained a lot and did the guitars and recorded the vocals on the album. As outcome, the world has to face eight new tracks of classic heavy metal, made with heart, soul and sweat, sounding raw and kind of “back into 80’s metal”.The journey continues with the release of "Destructive Singles", containing two new single song arrangements with former Iced Earth singer John Greely, who is known for his undeniable performance on the second and probably heaviest Iced Earth album called “Night of the Stormrider”. With this release, Bloody Times also shared a new demo track (as bonus, only on CD) to increase the interest in a new album. The preparations may have already begun...
One of Heavy Metal’s first offerings for the new year, German band Bloody Times are set to release their sophomore effort, On A Mission, Friday, January 11, 2019.Perhaps unheard of to many U.S. based Metal fans, Bloody Times began in 2014 when Bassist Simon Pfundstein used the name to label a compilation of riffs and demos he had recorded on his own. Though Pfundstein never initially intended to form a band, Bloody Times gradually progressed into a full-time project. Fresh blood, Pfundstein recruited Drummer Raphael Saini (ex-Iced Earth) and together the pair released Bloody Times’ debut album, The Fire of Immortality, in late 2016. Seeking a full-time singer, Bloody Times hired yet another former member of Iced Earth, Vocalist John Greely – Iced Earth’s frontman on 1991’s Night of the Stormrider.Feeling something good going on, Bloody Times entered the studio in 2017 to commence writing and recording on the band’s next album. As Bloody Times began to grow, the band welcomed eight, yes eight more musicians into the family. Most notably, Bloody Times was honored to bring in legendary Guitarist Ross “The Boss” Friedman – former member and architect of mythological Heavy Metal band Manowar.Not to be forgotten, Bloody Times rounded out their lineup with Keyboardist Rudiger Weib and a mob of five more guitarists who joined the fray – Judas (rhythm guitar), Kikidakis S. Nickolas (solo guitar), Balasz Fleischhauer (rhythm/solo guitar), Marco Cossu of INEXHIBIT (rhythm/solo guitar), and Rainer Pfundstein of Big Mama (rhythm/solo guitar). In a few words, Bloody Times are an old-school crew out to pay tribute to true, classic Heavy Metal, and keep its legacy alive.Ready to strike some Metal, Bloody Times entered the studio alongside seasoned Producer OGrego (Winter’s Dawn, Necrogasm, Emerald) who was at the helm, mixing and mastering what would become the album On A Mission. A swarm of nine new cuts, On A Mission is a collection of straight up, no frills Heavy Metal which takes on topics such as retaliation, war, and dark history. A call of duty, On A Mission starts off with the eight minute long “Alliance.” A solid Metal piece, Greely screams to intro a steady course of slow, dramatic guitar work, and a lyrical context about committing to a brotherhood.In line with the subject matter, a thrashy “Fort Sumter” defends its territory while “Die in a Hole” implores to “Survive or Die.” Next, Bloody Times remake “Curse of Genevieve,” a track off The Fire of Immortality. Then, storytelling keyboard opens “Future Secret” before the muddy bass of “Operation Focus” helps Bloody Times say “Refuel and Fight.” Moving along, “The Warning (Until Blood Boils Pt. 1)” is a devilish walk into the heavy reprisal of “The Revenge (Until Blood Boils Pt. 2).” Lastly, “Day of Collapse” tackles the sobering memory of September 11, 2001 through stirring riffs and melodies (“200,000 tons of steel fallen to the ground”).To sum it up, On A Mission offers its fair share of respectable Heavy Metal riffs alongside lyrics which paint a clear picture of the direction Bloody Times is looking to portray via the band’s sophomore LP. Fans of Bloody Times should give On A Mission a chance, as it sees the band grow musically thanks to some new faces and more cohesive song choices.
