Bloodshed - _Inhabitants of Dis_
(Code666, 2002)
by: Vincent Eldefors (7 out of 10)
As if there weren't enough Swedish metal bands around already, we are told the name of yet another new act that is about to show the world what they are capable of on an almost daily basis. Perhaps I am exaggerating just slightly here, but this is almost what the metal scene is like today, and being a Swede myself I couldn't be happier. To be honest, however, not that many of the new Swedish bands impress me as much as their counterparts did five or ten years ago, but Bloodshed is one of the more promising new names to keep in mind. That is if you like the kind of ultra-tight, brutal but still melodic death metal that Necrophobic have developed over the years. Bloodshed are also from Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, and released a mini album called _Skullcrusher_ last year which showed a great deal of potential for this young band, something that the Italian label Code666 were very eager to get their hands on. This is a label that you should really keep track of if you are interested in finding extreme metal acts who don't sound like the usual run of the mill bands. Bloodshed may not be the most unique-sounding band on the label, but they are still very good at what they do. Necrophobic may be the closest band to what Bloodshed display on their full-length debut, but the music of Bloodshed is more epic and you can find little twists and turns in almost every song that make bands like recent Marduk, old Entombed and old Opeth come to mind. If you enjoy well executed death metal with a solid Sunlight production and high quality songwriting, then this is one of the hottest Swedish newcomers right now.
