Blood Haven/Religious Suffocation/2005 CD Review


  Blood  Haven  where  a  band  from  Arizona  that  played  a  very  heavy,  raw  and  primitive  form  of  anti  christian  satanic  black/death  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  self  released  2005 album  "Religious  Suffocation".

  Drums  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  drumming  with  some  blast  beats  being  utilized  at  times,  while  the  bass  playing  has  a  very  strong  and  powerful  sound  with  heavy  riffing  that  dominates  throughout  the  recording.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow,  mid paced  to  fast  black  metal  riffs  that  are  very  raw  and  primitive  sounding  with  some  dark  sounding  melodies  and  death  and  thrash  metal  influences  being  thrown  into  the  riffing  and  there  are  no  guitar  solos  or  leads  present  on  this  recording, as  for  the  acoustic  guitars  they  are  only  used  briefly  on  the  last  song  to  add  some  dark  atmosphere  to  the  recording.

  Vocals  are  mostly  high  pitched  black  metal  screams  with  some  deep  death  metal  growls  being  utilized  at  times  as  well  as  some  horror  movie  samples,  while  the  lyrics  cover  Satanism, Darkness,  Hateful  and  Anti  Christian  themes,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  heavy,  raw  and  primitive  sound  while  you  can  still  hear  all  of  the  musical  instruments  that  are  present  on  this  recording  with  a  couple  of  the  songs  being  long  and  epic  in  length.

  In  my  opinion  Blood  Haven  where  a  very  great sounding  heavy,  melodic  raw  and  primitive  anti  christian  satanic  black/death  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check out  this  recording.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Hellfire" "Shards  Of  Crystal"  "Dwelling  In  Evil  Revelations"  and  "Into  The Arms  Of  Satan".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
