Do you like sour candies? If you do, you’ll know the experience of the first taste being bitterly sour so that you feel like your face is going to turn inside out, but, there’s that hint and then after-taste of real sweetness that makes you eat another. Before long you’re popping the damn things like the bitterness never existed and thinking they’re the best stuff ever. That is how this album hit me. The perfect sour candy.
Blood Revolt is a trio of veteran extreme metalers. James Read (drums) and Chris Ross (guitars) have played with Axis of Advance and Revenge, among others. Vocalist A.A. Nemtheanga is probably best know from Primordial, though he’s also worked with several others. If you’re familiar to any degree with these bands then you may be starting to see how the sour candy came in.
