THE TASTE OF BLOOD
PREDATOR
TRIBUNAL

Santa Cruz, CA isn’t a place you’d expect a guttural metalcore band to hail from, yet here come The Taste of Blood. A quintet armed with a hearty helping of chugging riffs, rugged rhythms, and the type of blood curdling screaming you’d expect to hear in a horror flick, their 10-track ode to aggression takes the West Coast hardcore sound and meshes it with shades of death metal on tracks like “I Guess That’s Why They Make Safety Pins” and “I’ve Stolen From Posters and Drawings”. While PREDATOR isn’t as groundbreaking as other band’s releases, this album is bursting with fierce breakdowns and pummeling transitions, making any moshpit’s activity reach peak levels.
