Cape Town, South Africa: signalling the 21st anniversary of this landmark album in South African Metal history, V.O.D.‘s 1996 Bloedrivier is available on vinyl today.
Bloedrivier was recorded at the legendary Academy Studios in Yorkshire, England; also frequented at the time by leaders in dark and heavy music such as Paradise Lost, Anathema, My Dying Bride and Cradle Of Filth.
V.O.D found itself in the UK as South Africa’s first ever Metal export, touring Europe with Sweden’s Katatonia and Norway’s In The Woods. The band reunited for a South African tour in 2009, featuring all members from the Bloedrivier line-up including from abroad.
