“Few bands have hit the scene with a debut album that was a too-hot-to-handle bonafide instant classic from the moment it hit the stores. The CMR Top 100 Christian Metal Albums Of All-Time ranks this 1990 debut at #5 of ALL-TIME! And, yes, it is that important and that good! Tourniquet formed in Los Angeles, CA, in 1989. The band was founded by Ted Kirkpatrick, Guy Ritter and Gary Lenaire. Stop The Bleeding is an intoxicating mixture of thrash, progressive and neo-classical heavy metal that helped the band move light years beyond cliche and triviality. The song “You Get What You Pray For” was the band’s first single and charted quite well. It was a GMA Dove Award nominee for “Metal Recorded Song Of The Year” in 1990. The band’s groundbreaking and controversial video for “Ark Of Suffering”, written by drummer Ted Kirkpatrick – a true animal welfare advocate, contains disturbing footage of animals in laboratories and slaughterhouses and received airplay on MTV before the channel ceased airing it after complaints that it was too graphic. Despite MTV’s ban, the video won the Christian News Forum Contemporary Christian Music Award for “Rock Video Of The Year” and Heaven’s Metal magazine readers voted it their “Favorite Video Of The Year.” Tourniquet has earned six GMA Dove Award nominations and won recognition globally from magazines such as Modern Drummer, Guitar Player, Metal Hammer and HM Magazine, where Tourniquet was voted “Favorite Band Of The 1990s” and won “Favorite Album Of The 1990s.” Tourniquet has sold more than 300,000 albums.” -Retroactive Records
