Rated 3.5/5 (70%) (10 Votes)

This Swedish band plays raw Black Metal in the vein of early Darkthrone and Immortal (not the new stuff) and to some extent I can detect a little hint of early Burzum in there as well. This description alone should tell most people what they can expect from Blodsrit: Raw and crunching, relatively simple guitars (i.e. do not expect any technical wankering here.) The vocals are haunting Black Metal-type screeches that come out very effectively here and I'd go as far as to say that they somewhat highlight what would otherwise be a little bit of "déjà heard", at least musically speaking. Not that there is necessarily something wrong with that, but suffice it to say that nothing is invented here, but they do their stuff well so that can be forgiven. ;) The MCD flows pretty well and has a couple of songs that do stand out with somewhat catchy beats. This stuff is good enough that I can listen to it many times in a row without getting tired of it, even though it is short at less than 20 minutes. Those who cannot get enough of this raw BM sound will want to check this out. This particular release is available only from where you can also hear the songs, as well as material from their newly-released debut album.
