About Blood Of The Martyrs:
Blood Of The Martyrs is a ministry based metal band from Farmville VA who formed in late 2007. After playing numerous local shows and recording a few demos and EPs they released their first full length album Once More, With Feeling in 2011 under a small indie label which made it available on all major online outlets and retailers. Soon after the release the band steadily toured on a DIY basis, successfully booking a total of 250 tour dates between the years 2011-2012, which spanned the full eastern U.S and into the mid-west. Currently, the band is on track for a projected goal of 150 tour dates this year and has recently joined the Phoenix Agency roster with such bands as King Conquer (Mediaskare Records), Legend (Rise), The Last Ten Seconds Of Life, and In Dying Arms (Artery Recordings). The band strives to present itself in a professional manner, not only in person while at shows but also through their online presence, fully utilizing most, or all, major social networking sites, including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube, which, on its own has collected nearly 400,000 views since 2010. The band is self-releasing their second full length on October 4th, titled Completionist, which was produced by Jamie King (Between The Buried and Me, For Today, The Human Abstract).
