My name is Shawn Johnson, I am the drummer for BLOODSTREAM PARADE. I have been playing drums for 23 years now, and love it more each day. Since '94/'95, I have been playing in the Chicago area with many of great musicians. My main band back then was a Punk/Metal band called InSpiteofYou. Around '96/'97, I was called to join a Signed DeathMetal band from Kenosha Wisconsin called Jungle Rot. I was a member for about 12-13 months helping them write their CD, "Dead and Burried", later released on Pavement Records.
After Jungle Rot, InSpiteofYou reformed with a couple new members, and Metal was our main focus. A few years went by and a few of us wanted something heavier, so we started a project called, BLOODSTREAM PARADE. This is my current band, and after many member changes, we are now signed to Dark Star Records. BLOODSTREAMS first CD on Dark Star Records is do out in October 2009 called, "The Apocalypse: In Retrospect".
