ABOUT

Phlebotomized is among the oldest deathmetal bands from Holland and one of the first to use violin and synthesizer in extreme metal. During their heydays the band gained a cult status in the underground scene. Phlebotomized is best known for their unconventional song structures, blending atmosphere with grind outbursts.


Formed in March 1989, Phlebotomized started as a grindcore outfit, heavily inspired by grind, death- and doom metal. At the end of 1990 -influenced by albums like The key (Nocturnus), Gothic (Paradise lost) and Altars of madness (Morbid Angel)-, the band started to use keyboard and violin arrangements, resulting in their unique sound. In 1997 Phlebotomized disbanded.
During their seven years of existence, Phlebotomized released:

  • Devoted to God - Demo (1992)
  • In search of tranquillity - 7" ep (1992)
  • Preach eternal gospels - mini (1993)
  • Immense intense suspense - full length (1994)
  • Sky contact - full lenght (1997)

In 2013, Vic Records re-released Preach eternal gospels and Devoted to God in a special 20th anniversary edition. Phlebotomized re-united after this release and started playing live shows again.

Mid-year 2015, musical ideas originated in a growing belief to create a new album. Now, full of energy, with new members and dedication, their new sound and -again- different approach will culminate into a brand new album. Phlebotomized is out to explore beyond the scopes of conventional paths in death metal, determined to enlarge their huge worldwide following...
