|CD REVIEW Poison My Blood|
Band: Poison My Blood
Belgium has always been a breeding ground for good metalcore acts. Just think of bands such as The Maple Room, Liar, Campus, ... Also Poison My Blood is part of that list. Just one year after the release of their very first studio album, The Great Northern, The five guys got back in the studio to start working on five new songs. Now these songs are ready and gathered on the EP called The Countess. The first song of that record, Misantrophy already feels like getting a vicious kick to your face: no soft intro to get you warmed up, but heavy vocals, guitar riffs and drumming instead of that. All other four songs follow the basic principle and don't let any room to catch a breath. Although all five songs sound very aggressive, they are all very distinctive.
