They were signed in 2010 by the record label Tarot Records. They released their first album: "Bleeding Blue" the same year.

Musical style

Blue Embrace's musical is variable and original with early influences from rock, blues and jazz. During the recording of Fenix, the band took a more progressive approach to their music, Devil in Disguise released in 2012 gave the band a more classical rock and blues approach. 2014 was the release of their Live Fan Appreciation single "Feel the Blues", recorded at Salamanca Studios in California during the Devil in Disguise sessions.

Critical reception

Rock drummer Vinny Appice wrote: Blue Embrace’s ‘Fenix’ is refreshing with great grooves; music with a bad attitude! Their simple yet effective cool riffs remind me a bit of Zeppelin. They are not followers or trendy and I see a bright future ahead of Blue Embrace if they keep it metal with soul.[5]

Rock singer Phil Lewis wrote: Blue Embrace have that edge and hunger that I recall the first time I saw a young Metallica. Loud abrasive yet soulful. I think were all going to be hearing a lot more about this band in the very near future. [5]
