Bloodsimple was formed in 2002 by Tim Williams and Mike Kennedy, following the demise of their previous band, the influential hardcore/metalcore band Vision Of Disorder. Red Harvest, the band's second effort, combines metalcore with some Pantera punch and a shade of nu-metal groove, with Williams' vocals alternating between a true metalcore snarl and a more Anselmo-ish roar. The riffs are chunky and heavy, the production is clear, and the band has a knack for writing catchy (not in a poppy sense, but memorable) songs. The band apparently withered away some time after Red Harvest's release, with Vision Of Disorder coming back to life.
