BLOODHUNTER is an extreme metal band born in Galician lands (Spain) in 2008 from the hand of sole founding member and main songwriter, DANI ARCOS. After several changes in their lineup and concept, DIVA SATANICA joins the band in 2009, whose guttural vocal assault helped drift the band into more extreme territories.
They release 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, their lead guitarist 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 from CHILDREN OF BODOM, SAMY ELBANNAN from LOST SOCIETY and ARCHIE CRUZ from SANTA CRUZ among others.
Later, the band would open for bands like Hemdale, Holy Moses, Avulsed, Ancient Rites, Rise to Fall or Aposento, before joining Nightrage (Sweden) and Methedras (Italy) on their first weeklong Spanish trek called "THE BLOODY TOUR".
DIVA SATANICA participated in the TV Show “The Voice”, surprising the coaches by singing screaming and growling, being the first contestant to perform this type of singing. The international artist JUANES chose her to be part of his team, where she performed songs like “Sweet Dreams”, “Eye of the Tiger” or Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance”.
THE END OF FAITH is the second full-length album of the band, produced by ÁLEX CAPPA and BLOODHUNTER 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 as well as a mind blowing drum performance by MARCELO AIRES. 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 and OTERO BRUTAL FEST among others, sharing the stage with bands such as Children of Bodom, At the Gates, Entombed, Suffocation… and other legendary bands like Rainbow, Megadeth or KISS.
