Born out of a desire for a more aggressive and intricate sound than what was being offered in today's industry, stands out in speed, thrash, heavy groove, melody, and violent breakdowns.

Bursting on to the Columbus scene in 2008, Bless the Child quickly gained a following with their unique mix of high intensity, brutality, and well-structured melody, a style of writing that comes naturally to vocalist Brian "Jonesy" Jones , Mark Crumpler on guitar/vocals,Derek Young and Drake Tulloh on guitars, Mark Evans behind the kit, and Steve Shelline on bass.
BTC's unique sound caught the attention of the right people, being featured on Maritime’s Recording’s Monuments Compilation CD with acts like Bleeding Through, Meshuggah, Winds of Plague, God Forbid, All Shall Perish, Misery Signals and many, many more.

Recording also comes easily to the band, especially since they work with one of the best engineers/producers in the Tri-state area, Bobby Leonard at Paper Tiger Studios. Paper Tiger and Leonard are responsible for the demos that landed major label deals for bands Attack Attack, The Crimson Armada, and Of Mice and Men.

Recently, BTC has released two new tracks from their forthcoming album entitled, Unveiling Retribution currently streaming on the band’s Facebook page.

"Bless the Child is the Lance Armstrong of Ohio Metal. Intense drumming from the depths of hell, juicy guitar licks that will make you explore new parts of your body, and brutal vocals that keep you wanting more.” says Johnny Rocket of Woe of Tyrants.

Take notice now because Bless The Child is just getting started.
