Lake Of Blood are a band from Los Angeles, California that plays a very melodic, raw and primitive form of atmospheric black metal and this is is a review of t heir 2008 ep "Heed The Primal Calling" which was released by Milkweed.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a great amount of blast beats being thrown into the music, while the synths bring a very dark and atmospheric sound to the music, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars and at times they have a very powerful sound to them.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast black metal riffs that are very dark, melodic, atmospheric, raw and primitive sounding with some thrash elements being thrown into the music at times and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording, as for the acoustic guitars when they are utilized use finger picking and full chords to enhance the atmosphere of the ep.
Vocals are all grim sounding black metal screams, while the lyrics cover isolation and misanthropy, as for the production it has a very dark, heavy, raw and primitive sound with a couple of the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion Lake Of Blood are a very great sounding melodic, raw and primitive atmospheric black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "(Out Of Darkness)Nameless I Arise" and "Lake Of Blood". RECOMMENDED BUY.
