Good Friday and Easter According to Bloodgood

I’m still a metal head and still a fan of Bloodgood.  Check out this stage presentation of the crucifixion and resurrection (might not be suitable for young children)

I had the pleasure of seeing Bloodgood when I was in college. It was a small show in a fire hall. It was raining and we were waiting outside to be let in, all getting wet and feeling pretty miserable. The band showed up and had them let us in immediately to get out of the rain. After a few minutes, they came out and started playing and everyone got excited. When they finished the song, Les (the lead singer) told us that they would be right back after they got their “rock and roll clothes” on. Everyone then realized that it had only been the sound check. Normally, that would have happened long before anyone came in, but the band refused to let us stay out in the rain. They performed these two songs too (“Crucify” and “The Messiah”). Les dressed up like Pilate but there was none of the theatrics that appeared in their bigger concerts (like in this video). It was still very powerful. Genuinely good God loving people, doing it for all the right reasons. Sadly, Les Calrson tragically and unexpectedly lost his son shortly after releasing their new CD .  May the hope of the resurrection comfort his family this Easter.
