Sacred Steel – The Bloodshed Summoning



This album is the first Sarced Steel Album for 4 years.

The songs in the album has 2 styles. Some songs like Storm Of Fire 1916′ remind me on Kreator in the 80s .

All in all the album is harder than the previous albums  ‘Carnage Victory’ and ‘Hammer of Destruction’.

Other songs like ‘The Bloodshed Summoning’ are a little bit more  melodical. Through and through the high voice of Gerrit Mutz is not a thing for every heavy metal fan.

‘The Night They Come To Kill’ is good example for the mix of the Kreator style and the symphonic parts, They change often in this song. For me it doesn’t make fun to hear this but people who like that should buy this album.

Another song which is powerful and in my opinion the best song of the album is ‘Journey Into Purgatory’. The riffs are very powerful and in this song the voice is the best.

One thing i don’t like is that the album is too long. 15 songs for an album are too many. In my opinion is that the reason why the quality of the album is not the best.

All in all the album is an average album. It’s neither good nor bad, but only a album for fill some gaps between some good albums. It’a an album which couldn’t really convince me.

About Del Preston

So there I am, in Sri Lanka, formerly Ceylon, at about 3 o'clock in the morning, looking for one thousand brown M&Ms to fill a brandy glass, or Ozzy wouldn't go on stage that night. So, Jeff Beck pops his head 'round the door, and mentions there's a little sweet shop on the edge of town. So - we go. And - it's closed. So there's me and Keith Moon and David Crosby, breaking into that little sweet shop, eh. Well, instead of a guard dog, they've got this bloody great big Bengal tiger. I managed to take out the tiger with a can of mace, but the shop owner and his son, that's a different story altogether. I had to beat them to death with their own shoes. Nasty business really. But sure enough, I got the M&Ms and Ozzy went on stage and did a great show.
