Blood Haven where a band from Arizona that played a very heavy, raw and primitive form of anti christian satanic black/death metal and this is a review of their self released 2005 album "Religious Suffocation".
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being utilized at times, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast black metal riffs that are very raw and primitive sounding with some dark sounding melodies and death and thrash metal influences being thrown into the riffing and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording, as for the acoustic guitars they are only used briefly on the last song to add some dark atmosphere to the recording.
Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams with some deep death metal growls being utilized at times as well as some horror movie samples, while the lyrics cover Satanism, Darkness, Hateful and Anti Christian themes, as for the production it has a very heavy, raw and primitive sound while you can still hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording with a couple of the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion Blood Haven where a very great sounding heavy, melodic raw and primitive anti christian satanic black/death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Hellfire" "Shards Of Crystal" "Dwelling In Evil Revelations" and "Into The Arms Of Satan". RECOMMENDED BUY.
