Blood – Christbait re-release coming on September 28th

Blood - Christbait (1992)

Vic Records is rereleasing Blood’s 1992 album Christbait on September 28th. This German death metal/grindcore act received some praise in the old archives for successfully adding some conventional musicality to a standard formula. In that regard this is similar to how Carcass and Napalm Death expanded their sounds on Symphonies of Sickness and Harmony Corruption; Christbait is similarly more intelligible and elaborate than Blood’s previous work (although still fairly simplistic) while retaining much of its intensity. Newer bands would do well to learn from these examples if they want to create works of similar quality.

    Are the old archives no longer accessible from

    If so, that’s a bit of a shame, as they were an amazing resource!

      The old archives are hidden away under for now, but they frequently show up if you input the name of a band featured there into the search prompt on the front page.

        Right. You can find them by luck, or if you know the old URLs. But wouldn’t it be useful to have them linked to the main page, as always?

        Again I only suggest this, as they are the best resource on the net for metal bar none.

    They aren’t even accessible from A.N.U.S. anymore
