It’s nice metalheads to wear old-school elastic jeans, even if they have passed the teenage years. Baphomet’s Blood are strong as Venom ’85 and they are serious as Lemmy – for the rest of their lives. And the basis of their music is a combination of Venom and Motorhead with a taste of melodic speed metal in the veins of Exciter.
Metal Damnation consists of 8 fast tracks, but we remain with the feeling that the drummer has played one and the same song eight times. The monotony in rhythm leads to some similarity in the riffs. The line of vocals of Necrovomiterror is characteristic. Metal Damnation worth listening because of its sheer power and its overwhelming mentality.
In LP release of this album (the third release of Baphomet’s Blood) immediately makes an impression the emphasis on the stereo split in the digital mix, a part of which is lost in the vinyl format. This Italian band has recorded their album to be released on vinyl. This is a great dedication to 80’es.
The expectations towards the song “Italian Steel” and the cover “Ready for Hell” for breaking the cliché did not come true. Baphomet’s Blood engross you in the beginning, but after that the simple texts and the monotonous composition may disappoint you. It remains the pleasure coming from the strong tradition and the immortal metal of 80’es!
