Rated 3.75/5 (75%) (4 Votes)
Now here's something a bit different and somewhat original; Death Metal with Hardcore-Punk. Sounds like another bunch of Finnish weirdos have come up with something crazy again. To tell the truth, Bloodlands features musicians from a range of Finnish Hardcore bands (both existing and disbanded) including Ratface and No One Is Safe, and each guy has a long history in the Finnish Hardcore/Punk scene. Right from the beginning, the main vision seems to have been to combine the best elements of Death Metal and Hardcore to see where this weird combination would lead. This marriage between heavy, brutally down-tuned Death Metal and aggressive, attacking Hardcore succeeds amazingly well, I think.
The songs on the group's debut album, Nihilistic Dimension, are short and to the point, lasting about two minutes apiece, and occasionally even less. Being the old Punk/Hardcore fan that I am, I love the way these guys get the steam up in their Hardcore/Death machine. They come straight at our faces like a division of uncontrolled bulldozers, rolling without pity over us all until we bite the dust. This is some great shit that grinds, pulverizes, whips and mercilessly wipes listeners off the face of the planet, metaphorically speaking. I need another dose of this quick; the sooner the better.
