Melodeath Done Right: Bloodshot Dawn
Bloodshot’s Dawn new album Demons came out last month, and despite the fact that Heavy Blog is Heavy has been consistently raving about it for months already I’m only just getting to it. Shame on me, I know.
Here’s the brand new lyric video for “Unified,” a song which I’m also just experiencing for the first time. It’s fantastic! Like Mors Principium Est — or, should I say, Bartolo Colon — this UK band is exceptionally good at writing catchy and heavy melodeath. Even if they aren’t really doing anything new it doesn’t seem to matter — they’re total experts at this. I especially enjoy the lead guitar work in this track, and overall I’d call what Bloodshot Dawn bring to the table a very At the Gates-ian approach to melodeath. Check it out below and stream all of Demons at Bandcamp, where you can of course buy it as well.
