“On Slaying Grounds” just by the cover and title you know this is just going to pour molten metal into your brain. So the first track is just a pure thrash assault. With the heaviness and crushing tone of death metal. “Warbound” is bound to break your neck. It’s just a crushing song that I can see them playing live. “Aggressive Psychotic Behavior” has this frantic feel to it. It makes sense especially with that title and it has a great thrashy riff and it kinda reminds me of the Swedish band Hypnosia. Under The Death Cross is just a kick ass title and it delivers. It definitely has quite a bit of death metal riffing and the drumming is excellent on this song. The closer “A Curse From the Grave” is an excellent song to end off on. This whole album is pure death/thrash awesomeness.
Avenger Of Blood have once again solidified why they are a force to be reckoned with. This is album is basically what happens when attack dogs get titanium teeth. It’s more brutal than ever before and it goes straight to rip your throat out. So for the people who don’t want to hear your usual bay area thrash rip off this year check out this record. If your put off that they are a (semi) newer band don’t worry these guys aren’t the kids you see with Nike hightops. It’s metal for people who like to bang their necks until they bleed! Avenger of Blood have managed to hit that perfect medium of thrash and death. Kick ass band and kick ass record.
