The instant you see something as dark and foreboding as that piece right there, you know you’re about to set foot in some raw shit so you dive head first right into the blaze. Rooted in the harsh and unforgiving brutality of 90s death metal, ColdBlood come smashing in with their third full length album and it is a real treat for any fan of death metal who likes it as bloody as possible.
Riffs. Hooks, rhythms, riffs, riffs, and more riffs! That’s but an idea of the awesomeness that ColdBlood brings on “Indescribable Physiognomy of the Devil”, excluding three instrumental versions of songs already on the record. The sheer intensity and high levels of ferocity goes beyond what many bands fear to go to, but ColdBlood show that after 20+ years of being a band they have not lost a single iota of the idea of brutality they started out with, and all ten tracks off this album are brilliant testaments to that. This is true, original head banging material in its most primal form as the massive guitars, guttural bass, and immense rhythms done by the drums all come together to give you blood drenched riffs enhanced by the absolutely hellish vocals that fit everything just so well that it’s hard to imagine any other kind of vocals being done. Everything off of “Indescribable Physiognomy of the Devil” is extremely fast and has a great sound to it that any death metal fan can get behind, and that’s something hard to imagine but I truly mean that because this is the kind of stuff that only us people who listen to the extreme end of metal can really appreciate and enjoyable. And let me tell you . . . there’s an absolute fuck ton of enjoyment to be heard with ColdBlood.
Ten uncompromising tracks that leave you a bleeding mass of flesh but awesome enough to where you’ll happily go through it over and over again, ColdBlood have created what could possibly be the best of its kind that I’ve heard in quite some time. The true underground has not given us something so nasty, so repulsive, or so disgustingly bloody in quite a while, and I know with all my heart that people will get years upon years of enjoyment out of “Indescribable Physiognomy of the Devil” without a doubt in my mind.
“Indescribable Physiognomy of the Devil” releases on June 16th!
