Formed by CKY mainman Derrick Miller, World Under Blood is a melodic death metal project whose debut eight-track offering TACTICAL displays a comprehensive array of dastardly blast beats (courtesy of Tim Yeung), furious guitars (“I Can’t Stand His Name”,“ Pyro-Compulsive”) and a fondness for 90’s death metal in the vein of Death. Rounding out this quartet’s ferocious fretwork and flurries of percussive power with dashes of incongruous clean singing and melodies a bit too similar to Miller’s other work, World Under Blood still manages to administer a monstrous presence that fans of bands like Arch Enemy and Fear Factory will dig, yet the emphasis placed on vocal melodies creates polarizing elements that detract the album’s overall impact and are bound to turn hardline followers of extreme metal away.
