Bloodrocuted - Disaster Strikes Back

Disaster Strikes Back
by Aaron Eerdekens at 06 May 2015, 10:25 AM

Eppegem, Belgium based four-piece Thrash Metal band, BLOODROCUTED, start off their new album, “Disaster Strikes Back”, with a homage to legendary Quentin Tarantino movie Pulp Fiction, by “covering” a cool version of Samuel L. Jackson’s reciting of psalm Ezekiel 25-17, fittingly called the reversed, “71-52 Leikeze”. After their attention grabbing, although slightly ripped off introduction song, they can only be further accused of 9 counts of rocking.

BLOODROCUTED takes the best of ANTHRAX, MEGADETH and SLAYER, mingles it together and produces a really solid album with some well crafted songs and an all around delicious trashiness. As I am a Belgian myself, I’m not even being chauvinistic. They really sound great, and especially SLAYER’s influence comes through very clearly. Speedy guitars and bass playing from Jason Bond and Daan Swinnen, heavy hitting drums from Sander Vogt and Bob Briessinck’s kickass hoarse screaming voice are the ingredients of this tasty dish of Trash Metal.

Appetizers “Revolution of the Enslaved” and “Burning the West” gives you a good idea of what is yet to come and they do what they aimed for; leave you behind wanting more. The main dish contains six more fast and heavy songs, with “The Sickened Mind” and “Human-Beast” as high points. Sweet desserts are album title song “Disaster Strikes Back” and bonus track “Rise of Evil”, who make sure you don’t leave the table hungry, but sated and satisfied.

If you live in or near Belgium, or you just happen to pass through, try to witness one of their live shows. I can’t imagine those being anything less than a dirty, energetic whirlpool of heavy, piercing trashiness that will follow you around for several days to come. And if you don’t get the chance of catching them live, make sure you check out their brand new album. You will be stricken back by disaster, or you’ll at least feel that way.
