Process of Extinction

Rated 4.25/5 (85%) (4 Votes)

Bloodbeat are a German Death/Thrash act that's been around since 2014, but I missed their 2016 debut, Murderous Art, so I don't have a clue how it compares to this album. What I can say is that Process of Extinction is a workout in brutally intense Death/Thrash with a sharp degree of technicality and menace that makes them comparable to Death and Malevolent Creation, though Bloodbeat arguably have both of them beat in terms of complexity. The obvious highlight of this band is the superb guitar work of the twin-axe duo of Jason and Moloch, which goes a long way in making songs like "Beyond the Skeletons", "Creative Murder", and "Rigor Mortis" as murderous and exciting as they are. Of course, I could name any of the other songs and give similar praise to them, so while this isn't all that original, it's sharply played and leagues above most of the competition. A killer release recommended to anyone who isn't a complete pussy.
