Hails blood brothers and sisters, as always if you want to get updated faster, you can friend or follow me on facebook, type in das wolf doebler. You can also "like" Blood Machine there as well. AS of January, 2012, the recording and finishing work on "Rise Of The Machine" is still underway, we have almost all drum tracks down, a few more songs to lay vocals on, some mixing, mastering, etc, printing, etc etc. and we're done. We're shooting for a March release, but don't wanna make any iron clad dates since we've had so many delays. We are proud to announce, after getting past some issues and such, drummer Jon Stafford is back in as our drummer. We will be supporting the album this year with select live performances, mostly in the southern U.S. until we get offers to play elsewhere. Thanks!
