Dark Blood Reincarnation System

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

Dark Blood Reincarnation System is the fourth full-length album from Bonehunter that I've reviewed, and it is one I have really been enjoying. After not being overly impressed with their first and third albums, Dark Blood Reincarnation System is on the level, and perhaps even higher, than 2017's Sexual Panic Human Machine. Bonehunter have always possessed a solid black/thrash sound and that has not changed, what is different is the songwriting which is much improved. Without sacrificing a single note of evil thrash or slowing down one bit, Bonehunter have come up with a fistful of catchy melodies sure to latch onto your eardrums like an alien facehugger. I have to give special mention to the guitar work, especially the solos. Guitarist Witch Rider has upped his game and his lead licks on tracks like "Nightmare Angel 2099", "Altered Beasts" and "Devil Power Soldier" are (evil) joy to hear. The drums, bass and vocals are quite good as well and the whole album has a warm, organic feel, perfect for black/thrash. From the slow burn of "Gashadokuro" to the lightning fast "Black Magic M16" there isn't a bad song on Dark Blood Reincarnation System, just track after track of pummeling blackened thrash goodness. Bonehunter have really dialed it in, and all fans of top-notch black/thrash should be grabbing this one without hesitation.
