O Agios Pethane
(Dunkelheit Produktionen)

Thank you very much, Dunkelheit Produktionen, for having re-issued this great album! There are few bands in this genre that I enjoy, but the criminally underrated BLOOD is one of them, and this album is quite an underrated gem. Expect 20 songs (around 1:40 – 2 minutes long each) that offer a multitude of fast and tasty Death Metal riffs, very organic sounding drums and over the top horrific low growls. Fans of IMPETIGO, NUCLEAR DEATH, TERRORIZER and REPULSION – this stuff should be right up your alley. BLOOD is one of those bands that sound exactly like what they are writing about – pure horror and chaos. On the other hand – there is no lack in variation when it comes to tempo changes, so chances to get bored by this album are rather low. Hell, even the breakdowns in the beginning of the song ‘Christbait’ sound so powerful and manly! Long story short – this is an A+ level oldschool Grindcore album, which fans of Death Metal and Grindcore alike should find enjoyable. Give it a try if you still haven’t!,,
