EP Review: SANGUINARY TRANCE Wine, Song and Sacrifice (Independent) by James K. Blaylock

Place of origin: Austria
Genre: Black metal
Release date: June 14, 2018
Sanguinary Trance aren’t an easy lot to nail down, soundwise, or otherwise. And I think they like it that way, honestly. After all no one wants to be pigeonholed, nor typecast. Instead what you get here is a cavalcade of soundscapes knocking hard at your skull’s door, if indeed your skull had a door. Anyways that’s a whole other conversation for another time. Truly I can’t even tell you much about these guys besides the fact that they are without a doubt very uninhibited. You can just hear the freedom. Seems like there’s a mixture of everything within what seems to be chanting. Perhaps this is why they incorporate trance into their name. It’s extremely easy to get lost in their hypnotic music. Which by the way is a tightknit wall of purposely penetrating noise. I can only imagine what this might feel like to witness live. I could surmise that it would be nothing less than euphoric. Radiating such an intense atmosphere. Quite beautiful really. There you have it: the good, bad and the ugly. -James K. Blaylock
