After the success of ‘Revelations’, surely one of the top 10 extreme Metal albums released in the last few years, Vader continue their tradition of releasing a stop-gap while they busy themselves recording their next album, scheduled for the summer. And as the rusty leaves fell last autumn so did ‘Blood’, a 7-track Metal assault from Poland’s premier Metal band.
Kicking off with ‘Shape-Shifting’ (not a song about Odo from Star Trek, I’m assured) this had everything Vader are renowned for; break-neck speeds, thumping rhythms, tasty solos and musicianship that is second-to-none in this field. The mid-paced, doom-ridden ‘We Wait’ is up next, which boasts the line ‘The absence of war/does not mean peace’. They obviously aren’t waiting for a bus, so.
‘Blood’ also comes with a cover of ‘Angel of Death’, the Thin Lizzy version, not the Slayer classic. I unfortunately have the North American version (considering I’m now living in Vancouver) so I got the CD that includes ‘Reign World Forever’, and not AOD for some reason. Not that I would dare condone home taping (cough) but anyone who has the ordinary EP and could arrange to get me a copy of ‘Angel of Death’ please feel free to get in touch...
