Nocturnal Blood are a one man band from California that plays a very raw and primitive form of black/death/war metal and this is a review of their 2010 album "Devastated Graves-The Morbid Celebration" which was released by Hellsheadbangers.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a good amount of blast beats being thrown in, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffing that combines the most dark, raw and primitive forms of black, death and war metal together in addition there is a thrash style riff being used on one song, while the lead guitars are very distorted sounding black/death metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are mostly deep and evil sounding black/death/war metal growls with a brief use of high pitched screams being used on a couple of songs as well as a brief use of whispered vocals, while the lyrics cover death, graves, rituals and occultism, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it.
In my opinion Nocturnal Blood are a very good raw and primitive sounding black/death/war metal band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Death Calls" "Ritual Lust" and "Triumph Of Impurity". RECOMMENDED BUY.
