A typical case of morbid american bestiality, Nocturnal Blood is a one man army devoted to the black arts of chaotic metal violence.
This is the kind of recording that initially might sound a tad generic, but a couple of listens later will grow in you. Its ugly primitive sounds are put together in such way that they produce an unrelenting, addictive flow.
How’s that? Pulled apart the riffs, beats and vokills have been heard before. The references to Blasphemy, Demoncy, Beherit, Von, Teitanblood, are oh so clear…
Well, it seems that Ghastly Apparition, the sole member and mastermind, has an uncanny talent in deconstructing and spitting back his influences in a creative, crushing, and entertaining way.
I must also compliment the production. It has a crude, demo-level harshness, yet it is powerful and you can hear everything that it is going on. If you need a pickup line for it, then let it be Cosmo Lee’s: “an occult version of Repulsion”.
