Bloody Redemption - Hit To The Gore Award winner

Bloody Redemption
Hit To The Gore
by Craig Rider at 15 November 2022, 5:51 AM

Metal maniacs, rejoice! I am proud to present to you: BLOODY REDEMPTION; signed via Awakening Records, hailing from Slovakia grounds - performing Death Metal, on their sophomore full-length studio album entitled: “Hit To The Gore” (released August 26th, 2022). Since formation in 2012; the quartet in question have only 2 full-length studio albums in their discography so far entitled: “Infected Minds” (released July 21st, 2017), and their second offering entitled: “Hit To The Gore” in their discography so far of which I am introduced to. 9 tracks ranging around 41:57; BLOODY REDEMPTION arranges an intricately designed formula on some heavy-hitting Death Metal developments.

Opening up with this ominously jarring introduction in symbolic retribution of evil abominated transgression; “No Lives Left To Live” rumbles with reverberating remedy until this rampantly rompy thud trembles speakers with bulldozing calamity, frolicking chugs boisterously bounce with sturdy weight & punchline tightness, as amplified adrenaline belts a clobbering foundation in berserking crunchiness amongst a distorted but gnarly fabrication in monstrously meaty malignancy which trailblazes with snarky scours while a barrage frenzy forges a concretely gritty groove that will get heads rollicking while banging in no time. Dexterously dynamic virtuosity utilizes versatile yet twinning vehemence within guitar duos Martin Fodor & front man Jozef "Falusoid" Kováč; ramifying this razor-sharp tempo of monolithic proportion while rifting substance organically stampedes with wildly rushing synergy. Jozef’s vocals surge with throaty raspiness & bleeding gutturals, growling ferociously with savagely sinister cords amongst a densely hybrid experimental force that showcases some rapidly swift nimbleness while a impactfully impulsing stridency rips with sonically seamless melody for good measure - especially in the slaying grinds in “Unknown Evil”.

Stompy piledrives from hammering drummer Matúš Minich rambunctiously slams the set with steely precision & throttling vigor, rigorously trembling souls with smacking volatility. While thumpy bass audibility from Marián "Maňo" Švec flickers his axe with relentlessly quintessential bombast and bruising firepower expertise that remain radically wicked while flexibly fundamental with the tactical rampage of brutally bestial abhorrence that’s portrayed here. “Vultures Waiting” slabs out more solid but catchy maelstrom momentum that crafts a diabolical stability on drum cymbal crescendos and towering tremolo maliciousness that’s most stridently fueled, injecting an infectiously primitive rawness on sulfurous strife that rivets with deathly deadliness which roars with an all guns blazing demolition process which fires all cylinders with strong pursuit prodigiously well.

Ancient Knowledge” arms a brimming overdose on nothing but lacerating kicks and meltdown perseverance that persists with prestigious rolls on piercing gore, as gruesome bloodshed that slaughters you with butchering heft and profusely robust musical penetration that salubriously supplies with this addictive carnage mobility that’s most smothering while systematically mighty. The titular track “Hit To The Gore” razes virulently with more rugged but aggressive extremity which revels with primal groove-bomb exhilaration amongst a flamboyant technicality that provides with groundbreaking assimilation intensely and immensely with vivacious yet foreboding buoyancy. Death Metal not only offers frantic energy, but also gives me unbound motivation which makes this record thrashy & scattering. “The Dark Side Of A Human Soul” rips through with shredding contortion and pugnacious sound production subjugation that revolves around a healthy dose in domination & demolition fervor, among an enthralling flair on viciously visceral songwriting musicianship that terrorizes unexpected ragers with crushing but archaic instrumental archetype in blasphemous assault.

Beyond The Truth” continues brutalizing eardrums with oppressive hostility and more warmongering bashfulness in which soars with motoring yet meticulous triggers which swelters through you like a battering ram while volcanic volleys raises high-octane riffs & treading bolts into an engaging fluidity that’s most remorseless while barbarically beastly. Until the penultimate banger “Shotgun Lullaby” appeals with this memorable transition that can be an immediate favorite with those massive chops and inhumane blasts of snappy vibrancy & potent zeals of wrathful malice that’s rather splendid, especially for workout purposes while morphed with those materialized tropes in headbanging tremors. Overall concluding “Hit To The Gore” with the finale epic: “Rupture Of The Dam”; I am compelled to say that BLOODY REDEMPTION most surely outdone themselves with this one, I enjoyed a tyrannical slice of some colossal Death Metal mastery that could be an easy album of the year contender - a brisk malformation of this subgenre delivers an experience of re-playable spins & indelible discovery in doom impending massacre and divine desegregation that surely deserves listening to should you be a fan of this subgenre at hand - do check it out, absolutely brilliant stuff waits you to raise hellish havoc among the masses!
