For some reason Vader feels they have to release something in between full-length CDs. So this year we get yet another MCD. Well, who would mind as long as it's of good quality and these Polish guys know how to write the best death metal songs. And know how to perform them! There are just two new songs on "Blood": "Shape-Shifting" is brutally fast like the old stuff, "We Wait" is a more slower song, very Celtic Frost even. The next songs have been recorded earlier and I believe that they've been released as bonustracks (not sure). "Son Of Fire", "As The Fallen Rise" and "Traveller" are again faster (and each a short but sweet 2 minutes) - it is what they do best, right? "When Darkness Calls" is pretty long with 5:16 and it has a pretty melodic riff that gets stuck in your head. Nice one to hum in the shower;) They close with an exceptional cover of Thin Lizzy's "Angel Of Death" that IMO totally keeps the Lizzy vibe going but with Peter's awesome vocals it's sooohooo fucking HEAVY!! I can hear that song alone over and over again. "Down, down, deep undergroouuuund...." wooah! The whole Vader approach just adds to the typical Lizzy style, or rather it's multiplied by 10 - I wouldn't mind if they did a whole Lizzy tribute album;) The song's about desasters that have been prophesied and Peter has replaced a verse by a text about the New York Twin Tower tragedy. An amazing ending of this little Polish treat!
