"THE HUNGER AND THE AGONY"
WINGS OF DESTRUCTION PRODUCTIONS
There are many bands out there with the name BLOODSHED, these guys are one of the
newer ones out there started in 2011 and hailing from Russia. I don't know what it is with
Russian bands, but I always have a hard time finding a lot of information on them.
BLOODSHED is no different. These guys play killer Death Metal music that takes
elements from the old and the new. They pull in some of the faster more brutal influence
from bands of the 90's Death Metal genre, especially the Florida Death Metal scene with
some other parts feeling like they were taken from the Swedish and German Death Metal
scene of the same era. Then they mix in some more technical and progressive Death Metal
parts with elements of the new school Death Metal bands. I can hear lots of tempo
changes, breakdowns and stop and start parts covered in a layer of Progressive and some
times melodic sounding Death Metal. They have a sound that is similar to a lot of the
bands that come out on COMATOSE MUSIC & UNIQUE LEADER RECORDS. The
vocal styling is done in a mid ranged harsher Death Metal growl with the lower and more
guttural and deep Death Metal growl mixed in. These guys have put out a very
impressive debut release in the form of "THE HUNGER AND THE AGONY".
Hopefully they won't get lost in the sea of many bands with the same name, because
these guys sound much better than most of them! A must for any fan of the entire Death
