Bloodstrike are a band from Colorado that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very old school form of death metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "In Death We Rot" which was released by Redefining Darkness Records.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the album along with some melodic guitar leads a few seconds later and after awhile death metal growls make their presence known on the recording along with some screams also being used at times and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard.
Most of the music is rooted in the early 90's Swedish style of death metal but with more of a modern production while you can still hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the riffs also bring in a great amount of melody and the whole album remains heavy from beginning to ending of the recording which they also close with a cover of Grave's "Soulless".
Bloodstrike creates another recording that is pure death metal and they manage to keep everything very heavy, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover death, carnage, war and hate themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Bloodstrike and if you are a fan of old school death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Abomination" "Cancer Among Man" "Maggots For A Whore" and "Silent Killer". 8 out of 10.
