The band states:
“As a global crisis seems to push our everyday life to the limits, some of us have had to experience how painful and stupid it can be to be classified as an essential or non-essential worker.
Despite all this, one thing should not be forgotten: A large proportion of those workers who really are essential to ensuring our wealth and our partly decadent lifestyles have never set foot in our country or on our continent.
Many of them are living their lives in abject poverty. Humans without a choice. Those who HAVE TO play the game of the imbalance in this world. First and foremost the children who weren’t lucky enough to be born into a society of wealth and prosperity.”
This album is the beginning of a new chapter in the world of BLOODSPOT. Familiar elements are expanded into the unknown and give birth to the darkest and most diverse songs in the band’s history.

Since their foundation in 2006, BLOODSPOT, always dedicated to DIY, have developed from a provincial rumble band into a remarkable and battle-tested force in the German and international metal underground. Thus the viral YouTube hit “Volcanos” recently landed in the new film by cult director Abel Ferrara, which caused a sensation at the Berlin International Film Festival in February 2020.
In the last two years BLOODSPOT have been on the road with US hardcore veterans PRO PAIN, the internationally up-and-coming thrashers DUST BOLT and the Grammy nominated SIBIIR from Norway, among others.
On their previous releases (one EP, three albums), besides Thrash Metal, influences from Death Metal and Hardcore define the bands sound. After a few line-up changes and several upheavals within the band, BLOODSPOT has been back on the road since 2017 with a fixed lineup and is more than ever ready to explore genre boundaries and emphasize the band’s own sound. This development is clearly audible on The Cannibal Instinct. The band’s usual thrash/death sound is combined with a dark, punkish rawness and a tough, doomy heaviness. A threatening melange, which impressively conveys the socially critical content around global exploitation processes. BLOODSPOT continue to remain unvarnishedly honest. Unnecessary frills, scene and image have always been largely unimportant for this band. Brutality, groove, abyss and love on the other hand are absolutely indispensable.
