Bloodline Severed is a melodic death metal band that originated out of Charlotte and Winston-Salem, North Carolina in the United States.[1] The band began in 1998 as a hard rock band called Markd.[2] The band has released three studio albums, an EP, and two singles.[1]

History Edit

Bloodline Severed began in 1998 as the band Markd. The band began as a hard rock act more along the lines of P.O.D. and Creed.[2] The band was formed by Corey Weaver on Vocals and David Wichard on Bass and two others.[2] The band went through several lineup changes and preceded to change their name from Markd to Bloodline Severed. The name came from Hebrews 9:22.[3] By 2003, the band's lineup consisted of Weaver, Wichard, Guitarists Joshua Lambeth and Dempsey Mills Jr., Keyboardist Stephen Horton, and Drummer John Snyder.[4]

In 2006, the band released a debut EP, titled Fear of Reality, independently.[1] Following the EP's release, the band began recording their debut album but went through some lineup changes in the process. The same year, Nic Pugh joined the band. However, by 2007, Horton, and Pugh had departed, being replaced by Derek Corzine and Amulyn Corzine respectively. Mills departed shortly thereafter.[5] In 2008, their album, Visions Revealed was officially released independently. The album would be re-released in 2009 by Bombworks Records.[6] The same year, Aaron Macemore would join the band on Guitars. Travis Shore would cover on Drums for Snyder in 2009.[1]

In 2010, the Corzines both departed from the band, eventually forming Whisper from Heaven. In 2011, Daniel, Aaron's brother, joined the band on Guitars as well. The band released their sophomore album, Letters to Decapolis, via Red Cord Records.[6] Weaver would depart from the band in 2012, with Jimmy Shaddix of Embrace the Day taking over the position. Guitarist Joey Cowan would join the lineup as well. Weaver returned to the band seven months after departing, with Shaddix being replaced.[7]

In 2014, the band released a single titled "Man of Sorrows",[8] and would go silent until 2016, when the band released a second single titled "Fire".[9] In 2017, the band announced and released their third studio album, Process of Progression.[10] The same year, Snyder officially announced his departure from the band.[11] The band announced they would be working on new material, with a new lineup, and potentially begin a new project.[11] A new project manifested in 2019, a progressive rock band with the Macemore brothers, Wichard, and former member Derek Corzine.[12] The band is currently on hiatus.
