Bloodbound: In The Name Of Metal

Bloodbound had many great tracks like "For The King" on their 2006 debut Nosferatu but for some reason I never really followed this band after that time, though I remember reading varied opinions on their following release so maybe that influenced why I didn't keep up with Bloodbound's recordings.

Bloodbound are another group that have seen past changes in that most crucial lead vocalist position, and Patrik Johansson has now held that spot since 2010 for this Swedish traditional heavy metal group so it must be a relief to now have stability in that role.

In The Name Of Metal is the title of their latest metal offering and also the first song, one with an effective catchy metallic groove something they do again on "Mr Darkness". Mid and faster paced tracks like "Bonebreaker" and "King Of Fallen Grace" make up In The Name Of Metal with solid performances throughout. There's a real fist pumper with "Metalheads Unite" as Bloodbound do a Manowar tribute in that slower mighty "Warriors Of The World" style.

In The Name Of Metal isn't the most innovative release you will hear but then how many of this variety truly are? It's more about that infectious familiar music. What we do have here is a fun stirring Bloodbound album for the metalheads with songs like "In The Name Of Metal" and "Metalheads Unite" that should sound great played live, however I do have a preference for Nosferatu.

1. In The Name Of Metal
2. When Demons Collide
