About Project: Blood

Conceived in the brooding swamps of Palmerston North, Project: Blood are the soundtrack to your worst futuristic nightmare - an aphotic blend of crushing metal riffing, jarringly heavy yet
danceable groove and harsh industrial atmosphere.

The band's first EP release The Dark Below represents the culmination of several years of musical experimentalism and hard work. It is the first part of a three album concept integrating a number of thematics from horror novels and films, everything from HP Lovecraft to The Evil Dead, it showcases the writing and performance dynamics of a well-drilled musical unit.
