Bloodsick formed in the Summer of 1996. The Band was founded
by singer Jim Lippucci, And Guitarist Todd (Blood) Thozeski.
Jim had been inactive for sometime after the failure of "Decimation"
and hard-core band "Domestic Crisis ( D/C )" and was
burning to play metal when he started running into Blood, a
friend from high school. Blood, actually sang for D/C years
back and had recently Played guitar for Cleveland hard-core band "One
Life Crew". Drummer Chris Dora, Then playing in "Decrepit"
and also drumming for Cleveland's "Integrity" decided to
take on yet another project in "Bloodsick". He brought on
board veteran Cleveland metaller Brian Sekula. Brian, of Cleveland's
legendary "Terror" was at the time playing guitar for "Mortician"
and welcomed the opportunity to jam with Dora and longtime associate
Lippucci. The lineup was completed with the addition Of Chris
( 213 ) Pello. Chris was a long time veteran of the Cleveland
scene, having started out playing bass for Parma's Lek ( The
jock itch of hard-core!) and The original incarnation of Cleveland's
Ringworm. At the time he joined Bloodsick, he was singing for Cleveland
murder cretins Apt. 213, and hadn't played bass in any band for some
time. Bloodsick began writing songs and playing shows and eventually
recorded six songs at Spider Studio in Oct. of 1996. Two
of those songs appeared on the split 7 " w/ Nunslaughter.

and Bloodsick became Chris Dora's main focus. Lippucci, Dora
and Kessler decided to lay the Bloodsick moniker to rest and
