Despite what you might think, it’s not only EU legislation that comes out of Brussels in Belgium. You can also find some pretty decent death metal it would appear.

Bloodshot have a few years of experience, and this is obvious from their second full-length, “Ultimate Hatred”. The release is a mature and extremely solid death metal release, full of influences from Obituary and Six Feet Under. Danish death metal combo Illdisposed also springs to mind when listening to Bloodshot, especially on a song like the opening track “Spill Your Blood” where the vocal performance is very close to Bo Summer’s.

Throughout the first three songs, Bloodshot lock on to a mid-tempo grind, only to be interrupted by up-tempo hardcore-laden “Two Faced Freak”. Next up is the more old-school death metal tune “Lair 213” , and this more or less the game for the rest of the tracks.

Cool album.

Recommended: “Spill Your Blood”, “Two Faced Freak”, “C-Evil-Isation”
