THE DEVIL’S BLOOD
THE THOUSANDFOLD EPICENTRE
METAL BLADE

Dutch retro metal troupe The Devil’s Blood employ a bevy of psychedelic elements to bolster the meticulously crafted and hauntingly harmonious female-fronted occult jams that comprise the 11-track THE THOUSANDFOLD EPICENTRE. Displaying a demonic pageantry similar to acts such as Ghost, The Devil’s Blood rely on layers upon layers of sound from both the heavy and cosmic end of the spectrum and an enchanting female voice simultaneously channeling King Diamond and Stevie Nicks to hammer their mesmerizing aura home (“On The Wings of Gloria”). Bursting with hazy guitars (“The Madness of Serpents”), trip-laden rhythmic patterns, and an authentic feel for scoring music custom made for dark fantasies involving sacred chants and ritualistic actions in the name of the unholy, The Devil’s Blood has built a progressive and psychedelic cult metal classic with their evil sense of elegance spearheading the entire 74-minute affair. -Mike SOS
