Coldblood was formed in 1992, but it hasn't been easy for them. The band split up three times during their history. Despite their difficulties, they have always come back (since their last formation in 2005, they have been around for 10 years nonstop). Indescribable Physiognomy of the Devil is the title of their third album. Musically, Coldblood clearly swear in the name of extreme Metal traditions à la Morbid Angel, Deicide, and Vader. Downright heavy, crispy, ruthless, and unholy Death Metal is what they like to churn out, constantly keeping their performance über-heavy on the darker side of the spectrum and offering a steady roller-coaster ride for listeners. They are good at what they do, doing just what they are supposed to do, and it's really enough. Songs on Indescribable... are equally good, none standing out above others. The vocals of Diego Mercadante sound deceptively like Glen Benton's, which I like a lot.

However, I am not sure about whether the three instrumental bonus tracks at the end of this record serve their purpose that well because the album's length along with these bonuses crosses rhw 50-minute mark. I would have preferred the album without them, making it sound more coherent and just optimal.
