About the Compilation

California Blood: Volume 1 features the most exciting heavy metal coming out of California today. Incredible bands from all over the state have joined together to craft an undeniable, massively enjoyable collection of powerful metal riffs and rock ‘n’ roll fury.

Earth Crawler, Fallen Suns, Great Electric Quest, Hell Fire, Horseneck, Monarch, The Power of Pain, Raise the Guns, Realms of Vision, SkullGunner, and Void Vator come together in this powerful collection. Physical copies include tracks from Blood Dancer and Legal Tender.


Two songs have made their world premier on California Blood – Realms of Vision’s ‘Isolation’s Crown’ (from their debut LP on Creator-Destructor Records) and SkullGunner’s ‘Warlords’.


Musicians in these groups have been found playing with the likes of Testament, Entheos, Chelsea Wolfe, Holy Grail, Forbidden, White Wizzard, Cage, Animosity, Will Haven, Set Your Goals, and Gypsyhawk – to name a few. You’ll also hear a scorching guest vocal by thrash titan Steve “Zetro” Souza from Exodus on The Power of Pain’s track ‘Tastes Like H8’. The collection of talent on this compilation is truly remarkable.

California Blood: Volume 1 is proof that California continues to be one of metal’s most productive and talented regions. Get your copy now and play it loud!!!
