Bloodred are a solo project from Germany that has been featured before in this zine and plays a melodic form of blackened death metal and this is a review of his self released 2016 album "Nemesis" which will be released in April.
Atmospheric sounds start off the album along with the music going into a heavier and melodic direction and after awhile blast beats make their presence known on the recording and after the intro black metal screams are added into the music along with some death metal growls before going into a faster direction.
Throughout the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while some of the faster riffs bring in tremolo picking and the blast beats bring in more of a brutal style and when solos and leads are utilized they give the songs a touch of melodic death metal and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and synths are also brought into the music at times and one track also brings in a brief use of spoken word samples and the last track is very long and epic in length.
Bloodred creates another recording that takes melodic black metal and mixes it in with brutal death metal to create some very aggressive sounding music, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark and violent themes along with a couple of songs being written in German.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Bloodred and if you are a fan of melodic, blackened death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Nemesis" and "Spirits Of The Dead". 8 out of 10.
