From the most southern point in Canada, Leamington Ontario (well actually all around the county now also Windsor, Belle River & Chatham) comes this 5 piece deathmetal/hardcore band.
BLOODSHOTEYE has gone through various band members since its conception in 2001. In the summer of 2002 Jessica joined the band providing very unique vocals to bring forth the solid line up that is BLOODSHOTEYE.
After playing through out Ontario for over a year and recording a couple demos BLOODSHOTEYE went into the studio in early fall of 2003 to record their debut CD entitled "Without Any Remorse". Featuring guest vocals on "F.U.B.A .R" and "Bad Trip" by one of the most charismatic front men in metal today D.Randall Blythe of Lamb of God.
The CD which features 8 strong but uniquely different songs was released in June 2004 on Canada's own Galy Records. For "Without Any Remorse" BLOODSHOTEYE toured across Canada in direct support for Cryptopsy (Century Media), and an east coast tour with Misery Index (Relaspe). In March 2006 BLOODSHOTEYE released their sophmore album entitled 'An Unrelenting Assault', a more mature and brutal album.
Heavier and faster than the debut, the album serves up enough breakdowns, blast beats, melody and an undeniable groove alongside catchy riffs that you'll have a hard time getting them out of your head. Produced by J-F Dagenais (Kataklysm, Misery Index), vocal production by D.
Randall Blythe (Lamb of God), mastered by Alan Douches (God Forbid, Unearth). With special guest Alex Erian (Despised Icon) appearing on the track "The Last Laugh".
For "An Unrelenting Assault" BLOODSHOTEYE did an Ontario/Quebec tour with Cannae (Prosthetics) and 3 Mile Scream (Corporate Punishment), and a full Canadian tour in direct support with Dying Fetus (Replase) and Covenance (Galy). BLOODSHOTEYE have shared the stage with such bands as: Lamb of God, Unearth, Cephalic Carnage, Kill Switch Engage, God Forbid, Caliban, Bury Your Dead, Despised Icon, Beneath the Massacre, Ion Dissonace, Fuck the Facts, Thine Eyes Bleed, Threat Signal, The End, Strapping Young Lad, Skinless etc. BLOODSHOTEYE live shows are a very aggressive, intense in your face experience that must be seen to believe. Feeding off each others energy they create an explosion of sound on stage.
BLOODSHOTEYE have created a unique "deathmetalcore" style from the lowest growl to the heaviest breakdown they use all elements of every genre of metal. In Febuary 2010 BLOODSHOTEYE will release their highly anticipated 3rd album "Expect The Unexpected" on CDN Records.
This time recorded in Windsor, ON at Spectre Sound Studio, mixed by Chris Donaldson (CRYPTOPSY, THE AGONIST, THE PLASMARIFLE) and mastered by Pierre Remilllard (CRYPTOPSY, ION DISSONANCE, MISERY INDEX). Featuring a new bassist and second guitarist, "Expect the Unexpected" will give you exactly what the title say! Keep an eye out for shows/tours in support of the release. .
