Guitarist/vocalist Jed Simon (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, TENET, ZIMMER’S HOLE) and drummer Justin DiPinto (INSATANITY, MALEVOLENT CREATION, PYREXIA) have joined forces with two members of the American death/thrash metal band VICIOUS CIRCLE — Vinny DiBianca on guitar and Mel Leach on bass — to form a brand new project called AMERICAN BLOOD CULT.
A demo track from AMERICAN BLOOD CULT will be premiered on this coming Monday’s (November 21) edition of “The Welding Room” on GashouseRadio.com and Wifiam1460.com. Simon will guest-host the program, which will air between 10:00 p.m. and 12:00 a.m. (midnight).
TENET‘s debut album, “Sovereign”, was released in Europe on July 20, 2009 via Century Media Records. The brainchild of Simon, the band’s most recent recording lineup featured such illustrious musicians as Steve “Zetro” Souza (EXODUS) on vocals, Glen Alvelais (FORBIDDEN, TESTAMENT) on lead guitar, Byron Stroud (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, FEAR FACTORY) on bass and Gene Hoglan (DEATH, DARK ANGEL, STRAPPING YOUNG LAD) on drums.
