CD Review: The Devil's Blood Return With Sophomore Album
The band begins with the heavy guitar riffs of “On The Wings of Gloria.” The combination of the music and vocals in the song, “Within the Charnel House of Love” is as seductive as metal music gets, while the 7-plus minute song “Cruel Lover” sounds like it came from the Heart songbook only instead using lyrics about the occult. The guitars come out blazing in the song “She,” before getting lost in the 9-minute centerpiece of the album, “The Thousandfold Epicentre” with it amazing musicianship and mystical lyrics. The album closes with the 15-minute epic instrumental build-up “Feverdance.”
The Devil’s Blood is currently on tour in Europe. For a complete list of dates and more information on the new album, please visit thedevilsblod.com.
