Bloodshot Dawn are a band from the United Kingdom that plays a melodic mixture of death and thrash metal and this is a review of their self released 2014 album "Demons" which will be released on October 26th.
A very heavy and melodic sound starts off the album and after awhile death metal vocals and thrash elements are added into the music along with some Gothenburg style guitar solos and leads along with some high pitched screams and the band also brings in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and heavy parts.
You can hear a good mix between the old school and modern forms of melodic death metal throughout the recording along with some symphonic elements being used at times and the blast beats the band uses are in a very brutal musical direction and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
When bass leads are utilized they bring a NWOBHM feeling to the band modern and extreme musical style while a good amount of the alter tracks bring in more old school thrash metal elements in both the riffs and vocals while the death metal influence is a lot more stronger and a few of the tracks are very long and epic in length and they also add in a progressive metal feeling at times.
Bloodshot Dawn creates a style of melodic death metal that has more brutality than most bands of the genre as well as adding in a great amount of thrash influences to create a very heavy sounding album, the production sound s very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover modern society and the struggles with mankind.
In my opinion Bloodshot Dawn are a very great sounding melodic and brutal mixture of death and thrash metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Smoke And Mirrors" "Black Hole Infinity" and "Demons". 8 out of 10.
