Rising from the depths of darkness and nightmares, Italy's Blood Thirsty Demons tells their tales of demons, witches and vampires with a soundtrack of Thrash Metal. The band has been around since 1998 and in 2010 not only released a new album, Misanthropy, but also a remastered version of 2005's Let the War Begin.
Simply put, Misanthropy can be described as the ugly face of banality. Riding over a raw production is an annoying lack of creativity. I liked the bands' direction, a sort of twisted amalgam of Exodus, Overkill, Motorhead and Venom, and I saw some potential in their material. However, Blood Thirsty Demons did some things that aren't likely to win many fans. Being repetitive was the least of the issues. When I listened to the solos I was stunned by how bad they were; like a beginning guitarist's first try at doing a lead.
Besides the track "Misanthropy," the rest of the songs, like "Black Witches," "Suffering of the Vampire," "Death is Calling" and "They Say," which all had brief flashes, the album sounded like it wasn't truly finished. Blood Thirsty Demons should work on their compositions. The vast majority of the songs are like bread without the butter.
