Ravencult: Morbid Blood

Under the Mediterranean blue sky of Greece, comes this extreme act known as Ravencult. Morbid Blood is their sophomore effort.

With such a dark and hellish cover art, one can hardly miss the idea behind this disc, and its musical direction isn't it? Yes this is a devilish, ungodliness opus of black metal. The complete description would be as follow: thrashy black and roll metal. Fast and furious is the name of the game in most of the times here. Tremolo picking leads galore, acrobatic drumming with lots of double basses and wicked rasps are the main elements. Not too much variation is being presented and the songs are kind of similar. On the other hand, this is well accomplished by a bunch of rather good musicians who play very tight as a band. Then you have some nice parts on top of that including: juicy riffs, moderate tempos and distorted arpeggios sneaking in once and a while. A bit of variation and an extra ounce of melodiousness that is very welcomed. You will be able to get those goodies on songs like: "Hail Revenge", "Winds of Damnation" and "Sworn to the Unspoken Oath".

You will have to check for yourself to see if this type of head-banging musical genre is what you're looking for. If you are a hardcore thrash metal person, then chancesare you will drool when listening Morbid Blood.
