Out For Blood album review by Lords Of Metal
The Brittish band Out For Blood releases its first record on their self-created label The Devil Knows You're Dead. Of course this can mean two things; either the band likes to be in control of their own product, or their music is so bad no label wanted to sign them. After listening to this album I am willing to go for the first option, first of all because I am not an evil person, and secondly because Out For Blood certainly shows some potential here.

It is all still rather crude and not very subtle, but the mix of metalcore and sludge is already quite listenable and it diverts enough from its idols (EyeHateGod, Iron Monkey, Napalm Death) to earn itself a spot in the scene. Out For Blood does this especially by relentlessly stepping on the pedals, while leadsinger Andrew squeals like pig brought to the slaughter. A small flaw is the music's simplicity, yet at the same time the tightness of the performance. A more 'loose' rockn'roll attitude would have given the record a well-needed dosis of filth. Without this the band sounds a lot more anonymous. The production is brilliant though (excellent job by Andy Faulkner, who also worked for Bolt Thrower) and there are enough interesting ideas on the record which make Out For Blood a band to look out for in the future.
