DANI ARCOS is the sole founding member and main songwriter of the Galician band BLOODHUNTER. He was part of Galician local bands such as SHROUD OF TEARS or YIDORAH before starting his own project, releasing one album with each one between 2008 and 2009.
BLOODHUNTER releases a demo called THE FIRST INSURRECTION in 2013, garnering good reviews from the specialized media.
Their self-titled full-length album is released in May 2014, produced by DANIEL CARDOSO and PEDRO MENDES at ULTRASOUND STUDIOS. Eleven tracks that include updated versions of the 3 songs already present in the demo, as a result of a journey from the instinct that expresses the essence of this band: its versatility.
MARIOS ILIOPOULOS, founding member of the Death Metal band NIGHTRAGE, contributes the typical passion of a south European guitarist adorned by the subtlety of the Gothenburg school of playing, creating a magnificent guitar solo for the song “Bring Me Horror” which fits perfectly with the concept of the band. Embrace the Dark Light and Dying Sun videoclips are released in June 2014 and October 2015 respectively in order to push the album through the internet. This album has been distributed physically in many countries around the world such as Japan, USA, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Spain, Portugal, UK, Germany, Sweden, France, among others.
In the Summer of 2015, DANI ARCOS won the chance to participate in the 100 GUITARS FROM HEL event, travelling to Finland in order to play an entire 30-minute piece with guitar shredder ALEXI LAIHO (R.I.P) from CHILDREN OF BODOM and others.
THE END OF FAITH is the second full-length album of the band, produced by ÁLEX CAPPA and DANI ARCOS at THE METAL FACTORY STUDIOS, which contains ten new tracks and a Crystal Mountain’s Death cover where you can hear DIVA SATANICA’s new broad vocal range. This album is the natural evolution of the band playing extreme metal without neglecting guitar melodies.
During the presentation of the album, they participate in some of the main summer festivals of Spain like
RESURRECTION FEST, LEYENDAS DEL ROCK, ROCK THE COAST, OTERO BRUTAL FEST or METAL LORCA, among others, sharing the stage with bands such as Children of Bodom, Jinjer, At the Gates, Entombed, Nervosa, Suffocation… and other legendary bands like Megadeth, W.A.S.P or KISS.
