Bloodthirst "In the Eyes of God" CSPosted on Friday, February 6th, 2009 @ 12:04am » permalink
Concluding this week full of demos (all of which happen to have simple black and white artwork) is the 1992 release "In the Eyes of God", from Chicago metallic hardcore act Bloodthirst. I had never heard of this band until the other day, when I found this demo on the incredible new blog Bring Honour or Walk Away, which I highly recommend checking out immediately. There are already loads of obscure old demos and such posted there, and I was totally flipping out over how great everything was when I stumbled across the site (via a link from Killing the Legacy, thank you very much). That being said, I know absolutely nothing about this band other than what I've already stated. I'm not sure if this is the only thing they ever recorded, if any of the members came from or went on to other bands, etc. The demo, however, kicks ass: Four tracks of raw yet effective metallic hardcore that has a dark and in your face approach that's not at all unlike the still-tied-to-hardcore vibe of early Integrity fused with some of Mayday's twists and turns, so… you know god damn well there's not a single fucking thing to complain about here. Solid recording, solid songwriting, a good sense of anger and energy… I'm sold. Here's one track to give you a taste:
And here's the whole fuckin' thing (via Bring Honour or Walk Away):
If anyone reading this knows anything more about this band, please post a comment and spread the knowledge!
