From the sweltering depths of Tampa, Florida, arises Bloodmessiah, a ferocious death metal entity forged by the relentless vision of Ronnie Parmer. Born out of the unholy cauldron of old-school death metal, Bloodmessiah pays homage to the brutal legacies of bands like Deicide and Morbid Angel, crafting a sonic onslaught that reverberates with the raw power and malevolence of the genre’s pioneers.

At the helm of this infernal machine, Ronnie Parmer stands as the driving force behind Bloodmessiah. With a musical vision deeply rooted in the traditions of old-school death metal, he skillfully weaves together tasty, classic heavy riffs that serve as the backbone of the band’s sonic identity. As the architect of the auditory cataclysm, Parmer not only pens but performs all the music on the first two Bloodmessiah albums, unleashing a relentless barrage of sound that harks back to the golden era of death metal.

Adding to the demonic cacophony, Mike Vredeveld, formerly of the Tampa-based band Catalysis, lends his vocal prowess to Bloodmessiah. With a voice that embodies the very essence of fury and malevolence, Vredeveld’s vocals become the sonic manifestation of evil incarnate. His guttural roars and venomous lyrical delivery catapult the band’s compositions into realms of darkness that only true death metal aficionados can fully embrace.

Ronnie Parmer’s musical journey extends beyond Bloodmessiah, as he has left an indelible mark on the Florida death metal scene. With a drumming pedigree that includes collaborations with renowned acts such as Amon, Malevolent Creation, Brutality, Angelcorpse, Perdition Temple, and Immolation, Parmer brings a wealth of experience to the rhythmic foundation of Bloodmessiah. His multifaceted contributions to the genre have solidified his place as a stalwart figure in the annals of death metal history.

As Bloodmessiah continues to unleash its sonic fury upon the Tampa scene and beyond, the band stands as a testament to the unyielding spirit of old-school death metal. With thunderous drums, ripping solos, and a relentless commitment to the roots of the genre, Bloodmessiah emerges as a force to be reckoned with, carrying the torch of death metal legacy proudly into the future. Brace yourself for the onslaught – the reign of Bloodmessiah has just begun.
