Nothin' But Blood

VINYL LP IS SOLD OUT

Regular LP includes download card with bonus material

When you boil it all down in a simmering cauldron: sludge metal, the raw sucker punch of punk rock, profound truths of sentimental acoustic blues and country, the cleansing powers of gospel hymns and ballads, and folk tales from the early 20th century.

Full Description

There are songs where Biram – the hard-living, whiskey-loving lifelong Texan – howls of mortality (“When I Die”), sin (“Backdoor Man”), and guilt and frustration (“Slow & Easy”), all the while struggling with which side he’ll end up on (and it probably ain’t the one with golden halos and white wings). He deftly sews together a myriad of flawed everyman characters: nostalgic, stoned veteran (“Nam Weed”); boozing, jealous lover (“Alcohol Blues”); and sadistic muses (“Church Point Girls”).

Throughout Nothin’ But Blood, recorded at Biram’s home studio and Cacophony Studios in Austin, TX, SHB’s distinct songwriting style encompasses his penchant for sludge metal and palm muting (“Around the Bend”), the raw sucker punch of punk rock (“Only Whiskey”), profound truths of sentimental acoustic blues and country (“Never Comin’ Home”), the cleansing powers of gospel hymns and spiritual ballads (“When I Die”), and folk tales from the early 20th century (there has never been a more beautifully creepy and morosely slinky take on “Jack of Diamonds”).

When you boil it all down in a simmering cauldron, Nothin’ But Blood is storytelling about wrongdoing and redemption. Scott H. Biram’s music is from the soul, for the soul, of the soul – and with this album, the spiritual buckshot lodges deeper than ever.

Short Description
  • Nothing But Blood is a catalog of hardcore stories of wrongdoings and redemption with a shit-ton of soul and spirit.

    — Common Folk Music
  • Stomps together blues, metal, punk, country and any other music within reach as though whiskey and women could be made the same way that wine is

    — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
  • On his latest album, the ominously titled Nothin’ But Blood, he ups the ante on acerbic expression and takes his visceral anguish to a higher level than ever before

    — Blurt
  • Nothin' But Blood finds the hard-living and hard-playing one-man band Biram sounding as intense as ever, and the cranked-up hillbilly stomp of "Alcohol Blues," the almost-metal assault of "Around the Bend," and the gritty boogie of "Church Point Girls" confirm he's still got booze, dope, violence, and women on his mind.

    — All Music
  • Biram’s whiskey-fuel fire rages on consuming us with well-penned tales of sin, redemption and a little bit of stompin’ hallelujah like a backwoods Dylan.

    — Donkey Jaw
  • For the uninitiated, just give this one a solid 20 minutes and you’ll see why Biram has become a favorite among everyone from blues diehards to punk rockers and rednecks.

    — Innocent Words
  • Mixing brokenhearted country and gospel with the primal scream of punk rock and metal’s ferocity, Nothin’ But Blood continues Biram’s penchant for putting God and the devil side by side to see who comes out on top.

    — CMT Edge
  • Nothin' But Blood is a tour de force of lovin', fuckin', cryin', prayin', and screamin'.

    — adobe and Teardrops
  • The picture he paints with the tempestuous build of his steel-stringed guitar and his unflinching tenor suit his own kind of Texan folklore just fine.
