Following the successful Bar Monsta show in Camden, London on 27th August 2006, Bloody Mary now plan to return to Italy for more shows in early November. A show at the Zoe Club in Milan, was played in September 2006. Bloody Mary's debut album "Blood'N'Roll" was released in France on 16th October 2006, via Active Entertainment and vocalist Aldebran did a voice-over on the TV ad for "Moschino Friends Man" perfume.
The band then returned to Milan to complete the recording of their debut album Blood'N'Roll which was released in May 2005. When the album came out the press was enthusiastic, awarding a 7.5 on Terrorizer and KKKK on Kerrang, just to name a few. In the autumn of 2005 Bloody Mary played at the Meanfiddler in London, which preceded their first tour across England. They played in Ipswich, Cambridge, Coventry, Brighton, High Wycombe, Norwich and finally at Camden Underworld in London, when the concert was filmed by Redemption TV.
The band hell-bent on being a strong live act, which has seen them perform all over the most popular nightclubs in Milan and its surrounding areas, plus a show in London at the end of 2004 for the Uk-based SixSixSix Records.
When the "Red" promo CD saw the light in 2003, Bloody Mary's mark was already well-known within Milan's underground scene and the four tracks allowed the combo to get noticed abroad, gaining good reviews on Zillo Magazine, Psycho and Ritual, among others.
During 2002 live activity of the band goes on and on bringing the guys up and down the country with an old dirty van. During this journeys through Italy, "Red" is being written. Once is issued becomes suddenly a "classic" of the italian gothic, obsucure and underground scene.
As this strange creature landed on earth, is clear that Bloody Mary born to play live. The stage is the natural element of all the band members. So it's not that strange that the first Bloody Mary issue is a live. The legendary Bloody Zero Live (printed in 200 copies) is sold out in one month and now is an absolute rarity owned by few jealous collectors. In this first treat you can perceive the deepest essence of the band: "passion, blood, adrenaline, ironical view of life and society".
The Bloody Mary project is originated in 2000, the band immediately lays out ten tracks before the summer 2000 and the development of their own sound allows them to break free from various influences (HIM, The Cult, Fields of the Nephilim) and find their own personal style. Aldebran's voice, warm, sensual and deep, wrapped up in mystery, dances upon a riffing which blends 80's wave and american hard rock, before getting beyond the bounds of heavy metal.
