Bloodstrike Review

Bloodstrike cover

Bloodstrike hail from Denver, Colorado, the land of Green (and I’m not talking about money here either) and with this their 2014 demo ” Necrobirth) they have produced a pretty average 3 track Death Metal demo.


Now this is where the problem lies, I love 90’s Death Metal as much a the next person, I too loved the classic bands of that period but this is 2014 and where i get some like to pay homage to those bands from back in the day and many do it well may i add, bands like this just don’t quite cut it.


Sure the guitar sound is Bolthrower-esque, the melodies have that ” i have heard this somewhere before” feel to it and the pace is mid paced aka Bolthrower / Hypocisy, the production is decent too and the vocals feel right at home albeit a little uninspiring.


I think with a full length and a bit of vision i think Bloodstrike could be a decent band but they need to shake off that 90’s aping of the classic bands of the 90’s.
