Full Length Review: Bloodphemy "Blood Sacrifice" (Emanzipation Productions/CDN Records) by Devin J. Meaney

Country: Holland
Genre: Death metal
Full length: Blood Sacrifice
Format: CD, vinyl, cassette, digital
Label: Emanzipation Productions
Distributor: CDN Records
Release date: September 3, 2021
This is a release I got through CDN Records that was originally released by Dawning Septic Productions. When I first got this tape in a mystery lot I was kind of worried this one might not be the best. I have a few more tapes from Dawning Septic and two of them are “just ok”. This one however is a hearty blast of blackened death metal that is not only catchy and filled with talent it seems to get better with each play through.
Featuring 11 tracks that are all top tier I would suggest this one to anyone with a desire for “warm chills”. The vocals are perfect at times and the riffs are crunchy with the odd splash of lead guitar work. The drums are pin tight—and the atmosphere overall is intensely delightful in a morbid way.
I am unsure what other formats this release is available on, but the cassette version is professional grade and the tape itself is a very pretty clear/blood red. Normally I extend my reviews a bit but I think I can sum this up by saying Blood Sacrifice is a great album and Bloodphemy for sure will be a band that graces my tape deck for a long time to come—and I will be sure to snag anything from these guys as it becomes available. Truly magnificent! -Devin J. Meaney
