BLUDGEON
BLUDGEON
Crucify The Priest
(Magic Circle Music / Metal Blade Records)
40:13min

Honestly spoken, I usually don't really give a shit whether a band managed to get a well known person to produce their debut album or not, as their material should speak on its own in the first place. But in BLUDGEON's case things were a little different nevertheless. The reason for my curiosity was the name Joey DeMaio, who usually handles the bass duties for True Metal masters MANOWAR and - as far as I know, hasn't done anything like this before. BLUDGEON is also the first band that got signed to MANOWAR's newly founded label Magic Circle Music, so I expected at least a little bit of quality here. And the twelve tracks didn't let me down at all. BLUDGEON have created a very powerful form of old school Death / Thrash with great riffing and a very energetic overall approach. This is not the usual 100mph type of music, it's very well composed and full of interesting twists and turns, never missing the necessary old Metal feel nor heaviness or aggression. It's extremely hard to exactly track these guys down musically, but I assure you that Death Metal fans will appreciate their music in the same way as longtime Metal worshippers (who already might worship the cool old school looking cover art). BLUDGEON have simply created a really exciting mixture of heavy material that will easily keep your attention throughout the entire record - a fact which should be another evident proof of their qualities as this unfortunately happens very rarely these days...
