Bloodsoaked-Religious Apocalypse (2014)

Bloodsoaked's atonal riffing style that emerged during their mid-period is still here in spades. The leads have a slicing, modern sheen to them, abrasive roars are quite potent, and the sporadic inclusion of the more raspy yowls add some variety to the vocalist approach. After a short burst of percussive riffs, the song "Abomination" opens up in earnest and delivers the goods. The drum programming is all over the place, throwing excessive fills and workmanlike blasting together in a boiler. The end result is one of the more accessible and potent tracks on this cd. That isn't to say the rest of the album lacks potency, but 4 live songs and it also features 2 covers , believe it or not Cinderella's "Shake Me" and Ratt's  "You're in Love", this is more like a compilation album . I must say that this new release is not bad at all, but i hope Bloodsoaked release a full lenght album next time instead of covers and live recordings.
