BLOOD REDSKIES, the Texas-based power metallers featuring former VICIOUS RUMORS singer Ronnie Stixx, have inked a deal with Pure Steel Records. The band’s debut album, “Conquistador”, is tentatively due in late March. A European tour will follow the CD release.

BLOOD REDSKIES recently announced the addition of guitarist Dave Watson (ex-DEATHRIDERS, MOTHER MERCY, RESISTANCE) and bassist Sandy K. Vasquez (ex-DEATHRIDERS, BLOOD LUST, LAST RITES) to the group’s ranks.

Commented Stixx: “As the BLOOD REDSKIES demo, ‘Breaking The Spell’, continues to be well received and the debut album being tracked, I felt that having both Dave and Sandy in BLOOD REDSKIES would be a perfect fit for the band, with Sandy‘s playing intensity and showmanship on bass, as well as Dave‘s killer playing. I feel that BLOOD REDSKIES can finally press forward with a killer record and great live performances.”

BLOOD REDSKIES‘ music is described in the band’s official bio as “a great blend of European and U.S. power metal, with catchy riffs [and] strong vocal melodies . . . in the vein of DIO, TNT, HALFORD, SAXON and PRIMAL FEAR.”
