Bloodbound-In the Name O f Metal

AFM Records

It's hard to tell if this is meant to be a loving parody of a band like Steel Panther or if Bloodbound is dead serious here. The band was formed back in 2004 and, from the looks of it, has managed to shuffle up not only their line-up (it sure looks as if almost every album has had a different singer!), but their musical style as well with each new album. Judging by the album art (or judging by that alone) it would seem as if this was going to be some tongue-in-cheek retro-thrash outfit. If you were to think that you wouldn't be far off actually. This is more power metal then anything, but it sure slices like cheesy thrash. It is hard to take this one seriously when they lay down power metal that is more over-the-top then Powerwolf (a band that I'm not to found of to begin with admittedly) and offer up lyrics that border on parody like your trying to be like Spinal Tap. Needless to say I can't really recommend this one when the album has so little substance to it.

I'll give this one a listen. However I am already putting one strike against them for taking the same album title as Executioner's 1986 debut.
