The best kept secret in music


Bloodroot, a powerful, groove-laden trio hailing from Brooklyn, NY has come to take the hard music scene by storm. With a bottom end as low as a snake's belly, backed by some killer fretwork and an overall hard rock power punch, this outfit has got the riffs, rhythms and rhymes to take care of all of your heavy business. There's a plethora of influences here, from the grungy (Alice In Chains, BADMOTORFINGER-era Soundgarden) to the metallic (Helmet, Life Of Agony), which helps shape this band into a true rock machine, able to grind out at any given notice, but also displaying depth to go the extra mile. Such is the case in the near seven minute Southwestern tinged rocker "Earth Below", which mixes the ethereal nature of The Doors with the heavier nuances of Stone Temple Pilots. Get ready for Bloodroot to overcome your emotions and fill all of your hard rock needs.

Bloodroot , then, provides six slickly-played hard rock songs very much informed by the grunge and post-grunge eras, with some distinctive Alice and Soundgarden elements in particular, all very solid and audibly honest, as this music has to be to thrive.'s big riffs, big sounds, close harmonies, y'know. Coming to an MTV2 near you. ]- Esoterica Metal Magazine

Feeling a bit camera shy


Rising amongst the skyscrapers, peering their heads over Times Square, it's Bloodroot, NYC's fastest moving hard rock phenomenon. Combining
the awesome trademark of crunchy guitars through Marshall Amps with driving, hard hitting drum beats with a mixture of undeniably infectious vocal melodies and tasty harmonies, Bloodroot has begun to define their own style which while influenced by many is perfectly suited to today's music world - darkly melodic hard rock with a touch
of psychedelia. Drawing on inspiration provided by everybody from the Black Sabbath and the Beatles to Kurt Kobain and Alice In Chains.

Bloodroot is Johnny Young on lead vocal and guitars, Roman on bass and backing vocals, Doug Vannoni on guitars and backing vocals, and Ross Kantor - one of the best drummers out there. The band has been Johnny's creation, which is now a collaboration in 4 parts.
