Dear customers, we'd like to introduce you to: 3 Inches of Blood
3 Inches of Blood, abbreviated as 3IoB, is a Canadian heavy metal band from Vancouver, British Columbia, formed in 1999. They are mostly influenced by the bands involved with the New Wave of British Heavy Metal of the late 1970s and early 1980s. In 2007, the band were a support act for British heavy metal band Iron Maiden.
Their debut album Battlecry Under a Wintersun was recorded in 2002 and released in cooperation with the Teenage Rampage and Fashion Before Function labels. It was later remastered and re-released by the band under their own label entitled Minion Music. This release went by almost unnoticed until the band's UK distribution label decided to put them on as a support slot for a tour with platinum rock band The Darkness. This exposure gained them much critical attention and acclaim in the world of underground metal, and they were signed up by major label subsidiary Roadrunner Records in 2004.
On March 22, 2007, the band was confirmed to play the second stage at Ozzfest.
