Formed in mid-2005, WITH BLOOD COMES CLEANSING have been impressing audiences with their intense live performances and well-crafted metallic tunes from the beginning. With a straight forward focus on their message, set to the sound of pummeling guitar riffs and powerful vocal deliveries, it’s no wonder WITH BLOOD COMES CLEANSING have earned such a solid reputation in so little time.

As the band added the strong-throated Michael Sasser on vocals, they recorded a six song demo and soon caught the attention of Blood & Ink Records, who signed the band almost immediately. Within a matter of months, the band found themselves at Planet Red Studios in Richmond, VA (where such acts as BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, SCARLET, and SPITFIRE have recently recorded) working on what would become their debut full length, Golgotha. This devastating masterpiece offers a blistering and intense combination of death metal and
hardcore influences unlike many are capable of creating.

Having toured throughout the U.S. already, including stints alongside BECOMING THE ARCHETYPE, IMPERIAL, and THE SHOWDOWN to name a few, WITH BLOOD COMES CLEANSING plan to continuing doing so throughout 2006. These guys are an unstoppable force and are ready to unleash their intensity to audiences everywhere.



The first batch of dates has been announced for the February tour featuring Blood & Ink Records’ VENIA alongside A PLEA FOR PURGING and THE GREAT COMMISSION. Dates can be found on VENIA‘s Myspace at:

On a somewhat related note, WITH BLOOD COMES CLEANSING are back in action! Even more exciting, the “new” line-up features alums Michael Sasser on vocals and Spence Erickson on drums (both members when the band recorded Golgotha for Blood & Ink Records).

We’re very proud to announce that WITH BLOOD COMES CLEANSING have signed with Victory Records. Jamie, Blood & Ink’s owner had this to say: “We are elated to see a band we believe in whole-heartedly take a step that will ultimately help them reach more fans and achieve greater success. I feel this step, so soon after their debut album was released just over six months ago, speaks to their ambition and potential.”

Check out the official announcement on Victory Records’ website.

We’re very happy to announcing that we’ve signed Georgia’s WITH BLOOD COMES CLEANSING.
