Bloodred are a 1 man band from Germany that plays a very melodic form of blackened death metal and this is a review of his self released 2014 ep "The Lost Ones".
A very dark, melodic and heavy sound starts off the ep before speeding up, adding in blast beats and black metal screams and after awhile you can hear elements of death metal being added into the music and there is also a good mixture of mid paced and fast parts throughout the first track as well as a very melodic approach to black metal along with a very dark atmosphere and you can also hear all of the musical instruments.
Blast beats and fast guitar riffs start off the second track along with some melodic guitar leads a few seconds later as well as some vocals which also bring in death metal growls at times and the music also brings in elements of doom in the slower sections and thrash metal in the mid paced parts of the song and the leads which are added into the song a few minutes later are in more of a melodic musical direction.
Bloodred plays a style of black/death metal that is very melodic and heavy sounding at the same time on these 2 tracks which also show a great amount of talent and skill, the production sounds very powerful for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Bloodred are a very great sounding melodic blackened death metal project and if you are fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "The Lost Ones". 8 out of 10.
