Sacrificial Blood are a band from New Jersey that plays an old school mixture of death and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2011 album "Unholy Fucking Hatred" which was re-issued on cassette by Iron, Blood And Death Corporation in the year of 2013.
An 80's style thrash sound starts off the album before the music starts to speed up a bit along with a mixture of growls and screams and after awhile solos and leads find their way into the bands musical sound and they also add in melody and more raw aggression as the album progresses.
All of the music sounds like it could off been release d in between 1984 and 87 and the bands musical style goes back to the beginnings of the death metal genre where the music was still mixed in with thrash quite a bit and you can also hear some primitive and punishing sounding bass guitars being utilized in the background at times and they also bring in a mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts at times while the main focus remains on the faster material.
As the album progresses you can hear some elements of classic metal being mixed in with their raw death/thrash sound and they also bring a cover of Rainbow's "Kill The King" towards the end of the album and this cassette has 3 bonus tracks that where not present on the original version of this recording with the first 4 being their own songs and the last 2 being The Godz and Riot's cover.
Sacrifical Blood plays a very old school mixture of death and thrash metal that goes back to the darkest, and rawest beginning s of this musical genre as well as adding in elements of traditional metal as the album progresses. the production sounds very old school yet professional all at the same time while the lyrics cover Death, Satan, Evil, Hated and Metal Themes.
In my opinion Sacrificial Blood are a very great sounding raw and old school mixture of death and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sacrificial Blood" "Unholy Wrath" "Evil Force" and "Warrior" which is a Riot cover. 8 out of 10.
