In the summer of 2007, five individuals collected in southern Los Angeles, California with the intention of creating raw, aggressive black metal. This collaboration of minds, now known as Lake of Blood, consummated its existence with few, select live performances before entering the studio in January 2008 to begin the first recording. Heed the Primal Calling, the debut EP, released in July 2008 on Milkweed Records, is composed of four songs, woven together through a concept of a man awakening, without identity or companion, in a environment without evidence of modern man's destructive footprint, to face existence and survive as part of the natural order. Heed the Primal Calling was quickly followed in 2009, with a split CD release, collaborating with Kentucky-based anarcho black metal project, Panopticon. The split, containing one new track, "Eternal in my Domain" and two live cuts from HTPC, was released through Lundr Records, owned and operated by the sole member of Panopticon, A. 2010 was a year of adversity and accomplishment. The recording of the impending full length release, As Time and Tide Erodes Stone, transpired in arduously long sessions, in the pouring rain of January. Following the recording, internal tensions in the group increased, leading to the departure of two members. Determined not to allow the death of the group and to avoid any halt in productivity, the void within the body of the band was not only filled but over flowing. A metamorphosis of great advancement occurred. The reformation gave birth to a stronger, far more homogeneous organism. The release of 'As Time and Tide Erodes Stone', due March 21st via Human Jigsaw Records, will mark the beginning of the new assemblage. With new material now being written at rapid pace, Lake of Blood does not intend to slacken stride during 2011.
