Another winner and easily the best album from Bloodbound by a country mile.

Bloodbound are back with album number four and as much as I liked their first three CD's, 'Unholy Cross' blows them all away because for me this is the album the band have been threatening to make since the debut 'Nosferatu'. The strength of this new release is in the songwriting and consistency of the music, which is way above what the band have done before, and I found myself happily singing away to the songs after only a few play throughs of the album. Firstly though I will say that if you don't like bands such as Edguy, Helloween or Maiden then you should steer as far away from this release as possible, yet if you like any the bands I have just mentioned and/or the music on the previous Bloodbound albums, then you just can't go wrong with this new release.

Starting things off with the galloping track called 'Moria' (yes about the Dwarf mines in Lord Of The Rings), Bloodbound nail their statement of intent to the mast and proceed over a further eleven songs, to pummel you into submission. And as you would expect, what you get from this band is a blend of highly melodic fast paced power metal that always leaves a big grin on your face after you've finished listening to it. Apart from 'Moria', you get ten other songs that power along at a fair old clip and have your fingers itching to take up the air guitar and shred along side each of them, 'The Ones We Left Behind', 'Message From Hell', 'Reflections Of Evil' are all superb slices of melodic metal with crunching guitars, ripping solos and high pitched powerful vocals, that any fan of the genre will absolutely love. Also the band seem to have found in their new and (third ?) vocalist Patrik Johannson, a man whose voice can help them put to rest the revolving door of singers they have had in the past, and take the band and it's music on into the future. On this showing Bloodbound have a bright and exciting future in front of them. Another winner and easily the best album from Bloodbound by a country mile.
