"THE DEMON, THE ANGEL, THE DISEASE"
BLOOD MORTIZED has been destroying the underground scene since 2007 with their
blood soaked gore infested music. These guys hail from Stockholm, Sweden and play
crushing old school Death Metal music. I have a few of the bands past releases and can
truly say they get better and better with each new release. There seems to be a resurgence
of bands playing the old Swedish Death Metal style again and I love it. It was killer the first
time around and is killer once again. BLOOD MORTIZED is one of the better bands
playing this style and that could be because they are from Sweden and have all been in the
music scene in other bands for years. Some of the members have been in GRAVE, AMON
AMARTH, JUST BEFORE DAWN, MASTICATION & many others. The band plays a
raw some what dirty version of the Swedish Death Metal style and it has a bit of that gritty
Rock N Roll vibe that reminded me a lot of the great ENTOMBED mixed with GRAVE.
There is a very fast paced groove that runs through a lot of the bands songs, which I really
liked. The drums kind of had a bit of an off beat sound which reminded me of
MESHUGGAH a lot. The guitars had that very cool Thrash meets Death Metal type
sound when the Thrash style was evolving into Death Metal back in the late '80's & early
90's. Mattias Parkkila's vocals are done in a mid to low ended styled Death growl which had
a vibe like GRAVE, GORGUTS & DISMEMBER. BLOOD MORTIZED is in no way
copying any of these bands and just have a similar style of vibe. I listed enough amazing
bands to compare these guys to, so if that doesn't convince you to get this album, then you
just don't like really, really good Death Metal. What the Hell's wrong with you! Get this
and get it now!
