Poison Blood are a duo from the United States that plays a mixture of black metal, punk and death rock and this is a review of their self titled 2017 ep which will be released in August by Relapse Records.
Experimental sounding synths start off the ep along with some heavy riffing a few seconds later and after awhile drum beats and grim black metal screams are added onto the recording and after awhile melodic guitar leads and elements of post punk are added into the music.
At times the music adds in psychedelic touches and the music also adds in elements of post punk while the black metal side is more rooted in the 90's second wave style along with the tremolo picking also giving the songs a more raw feeling and when the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard and clean playing can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and one of the tracks is a dungeon synth instrumental and all of the musical instruments sounds very powerful .
Poison Blood plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in raw black metal while the punk and death rock elements gives the songs a lot more originality, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover darkness and occultism themes.
In my opinion Poison Blood are a very great sounding mixture of raw black metal, punk and death rock and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should c heck out this duo. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Deformed Lights" "A Cracked And Desolate Sky" and "Circles Of Salt". 8 out of 10.
