Scorching the earth and damning the innocent with their furious combination of thrash and black metal is Bloodthirst. From the deepest depths of hell they bring with them their newest offering in the form of an EP titled Glorious Sinners. Within this EP, you get five songs of neck snapping and hellish proportions. Each song whips you around and damns your soul to hell for all of eternity. There isn’t a calm moment within this release as Bloodthirst is determined to darken your soul and strip you of your innocence and sanity.
Bloodthirst seems to have taken the fastest parts of black metal and thrash to create something that is akin to a hurricane. They play at a blistering pace, one that melts your skin and boils your blood only to have it burst through your veins and pour out of your eyes like a ghoulish crimson waterfall. The five tracks that hit you like a demon horde carving their way through your chest are tumultuous and drain you of all life.
Glorious Sinners begins strong and ends just as strong since Bloodthirst doesn’t let up for one second. From the beginning this release backs you into a corner and drags you to hell with it to meet your maker once and for all. Each song is long enough to submerge you in mind numbing darkness, but not long enough for them to overstay their welcome. These thrashing tracks torture you for a good amount of time and instill the fear of death in you, and once they are done they discard your carcass in an unmarked grave.
This newest offering from these Polish blasphemers is covered in molten darkness and soaked in pure hate and evil. Glorious Sinners preaches malice, sin, damnation and debauchery. Glorious Sinners is poisonous and it sinks deep within your skin to rot you from the inside out. These hell fire laden tracks aren’t afraid of going for the jugular from the very beginning and draining you of all of your blood for a bountiful sacrifice to the Dark Lord.
Destructive and blood soaked riffs fill your speakers as sharp bass lines infect your brain while violent drumming shatters your extremities. Shredding through the wizard like musicianship are the dissonant and gravel filled vocals that do their best to command the dead and summon Satan himself. The musicianship is solid and the overall sound is terrifying and life threatening.
Glorious Sinners is a chaotic listen, one that keeps you on your heels the entire time. From beginning to end you get assaulted by purely punishing music. There isn’t anything fancy here as Bloodthirst is straight to the sacrificial and bloodletting point and with that being said, this release is dangerous and more than worthy of plenty of listens.
