Blood Of Christ are a band from Ontario, Canada that plays a brutal form of death metal with some symphonic, black and doom metal elements and this is a review of their 2018 album "Unrelenting Declivity Of Anguish" which was released by CDN Records.
Melodic guitar leads start off the album before going into a very fast and brutal musical direction which also utilizes a lot of blast beats while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with the vocals being mostly death metal growls and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
At times the musical gets very technical while the screams also add in a touch of black metal along with the growls also having their guttural moments as well as the riffs also adding in a small amount of melody, one song also introduces acoustic guitars onto the recording and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and as the album progresses symphonic elements can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and some of the slow riffing displays a doom metal influence and spoken word parts can also be heard briefly.
Blood of Christ plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in brutal death metal while the symphonic, black and doom metal elements gives the songs more originality, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover scientific, chaos and nature themes.
In my opinion Blood Of Christ are a very great sounding brutal death metal band with some symphonic, black and doom metal elements and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Echoes From The 7th Dimension" "Iron River...Conquer The Wilderness" and "Unrelenting Declivity Of Anguish". 8 out of 10.
