Bloodrain are a band from Russia that has been featured before in this zine and plays a raw and satanic form of black metal with elements of thrash and this is a review of their 2016 album "V: Adore Satanae" which was released by Possession Productions.
Clean guitar playing starts off the album and starts mixing in with a heavier sound a few seconds later which also sets up the mood for melodic riffing to make its presence known on the recording along with all of the musical instruments all sounding very powerful and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard.
A great amount of tremolo picking can be heard during the faster sections of the songs and they also give the music more of a raw black metal feeling while the vocals are mostly grim screams and you can also hear a great amount of thrash influences in the guitar riffing and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a more melodic fashion.
On some of the tracks the vocals mix in a German thrash style into the black metal screams and there is also a brief use of growling vocals and all of the songs stick to a very heavy musical direction and they also bring in a cover of Slayer's "Evil Has No Boundaries" before closing the album with an original track.
Bloodrain plays a style of black metal on this recording that is very raw and melodic while also mixing in a great amount of thrash elements, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Satanism and Darkness themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Bloodrain and if you are a fan of thrash influenced satanic black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Black Future" "My Hell" and "Beyond Law, Bew On Morals". 8 out of 10.
