The idea of the Bloody Roots project had already been born in 2008, but in this year Tamas Schmiedl (former of Bloody Roots, front man and main songwriter of Moby Dick) was working alone on the first songs, gathering his concepts. The idea was to create an old school trash metal album with fast, dynamic songs written and played by a wide range of guest artists and songwriters (so not within the traditional band).
Smici: From the early beginning I was thinking of a project with many artists and not only in the phase of recording the album, but I also wanted to include friends and appreciated artists into creation work (phase). I seeked the emotion of experience working with a number of musicians which I experienced during the work of the Moby Dick tribute album in the previous years. I didn’t want to work either alone or only with a few band members. I didn’t have to think too much about who could be good enough for me, who I wanted to play music with, so I kept in touch with almost everyone till the end of 2008. Certainly I was aware of the fact that everyone has his own band and they have to find enough time – besides their bands - for the project, that was the reason I was planning to start the teamwork to spring, or to the beginning of summer 2009.
After choosing the project members, the plans and the concepts related to the project, it was clear that the preparation of the album could begin.
After two years of hard work and preparation in the beginning of Apr 2010 appeared at least “Isten kezében” (In God’s hands), the first album of Bloody Roots, released by Nail Records. After the album’s release the band went on tour.
