Metallic Taste Of Blood
Metallic Taste Of Blood's original lineup was Eraldo Bernocchi, Colin Edwin, Jamie Saft and Balazs Pandi. The history of this collaboration harks back to Colin Edwin's appreciation of one of Eraldo Bernocchi's releases on RareNoiseRecords - Parched / Arc, an ambient guitar duo with Davide Tiso. Reciprocal compliments swiftly turned into a desire to create something together. Balazs Pandi's name was soon thereafter floated as an ideal rhythm section complement and finally Jamie Saft was invited to the fray, with surprising results.
Metallic Taste Of Blood then reformed for a second and more intensely focused album, Doctoring The Dead; the new formations always contemplates Eraldo Bernocchi and Colin Edwin at its core, but sees drummer Balazs Pandi replaced by legend Ted Parsons (of Swan, Prong, Killing Joke, Godflesh and Jesu) supported by Roy Powell on keyboards (of InterStatic and Naked Truth)

Metallic Taste Of Blood
Metallic Taste Of Blood is an instrumental album brought about by the collective nous of Eraldo Bernocchi on guitars, Jamie Saft (of Electric Masada and New Zion Trio) on pianos and keys, Colin Edwin (of Porcupine Tree) and Balazs Pandi on drums.
Manifestly undefinable, MTOB collects very diverse strands and genres of music (metal, dub, avant-jazz and progressive rock primarily) and fuses them into instrumental compositions that tightly straddle what on paper are opposites. Loud and Gentle, distorted and clean, boiling and cold, sweet and salty, as per its own name.
An ever surprising recording, laying the foundations to entire new genres.
It is a staggering piece of work" ThisIsNotAScene
"If you crave intelligent, forward thinking, original and downright unsettling music than the self-titled effort by Metallic Taste Of Blood should satisfy your every need. This is sheer musical bliss. Utterly breathtaking!" Hellbound
"What is on display here is a cosmic jam of epic and meandering proportions. Layered with all manner of digital effects, the music veers from the chilled and piano-led to the full on jazzy skronk and petulant toddler nightmare of Zu and Obake" Ninehertz
"un sentire musicale estremamente ricettivo, aperto, trasversale e ricercato, nel quale il concetto di avanguardia non si oppone a quello di fruibilità, ma si arricchisce di contaminazioni egualmente provenienti dalla musica colta, da quella estrema e da quella semi-improvvisata" SentireAscoltare
"Dieci strumentali di gran classe ed inventiva, a dimostrazione che un nuovo prog non derivativo e' possible" Rumore (7/10)
"Metallic Taste Of Blood brings together arch six-string experimentalist Eraldo Bernocchi with Porcupine Tree bassist Colin Edwin, percussive noise soldier Balazs Pandi and keyboardist and avant-jazz alumni Jamie Saft. An intriguing collaboration in theory, and even more mind-boggling in practice. It's a dark and maze-like scramble through ever-changing instrumental soundscapes" Prog
