Since the early days of Bloodthorn back in 1992, the band's musical expression has developed and changed through their various releases. From the doomy, cold tunes of the ”Natteskyggen” demo, to the atmospheric debut ”In the Shadow of your black wings” and the sophomore album ”Onwards into Battle”, up to the aggressive wickedness of ”Under the Reign of Terror”. The later saw the band abandoning the female vocals and keyboards that had been so prominent on the first two albums and going back to their roots of raw, extreme metal.

Now, four and a half years have passed with countless delays, difficulties, and lineup-changes threatening to lay Bloodthorn to its' final rest. But the band remained strong and finally return with their heaviest and most extreme album to this day. Spanning almost fortyfive minutes and including songs such as the savage and frantic "Nightmare of Violence," "Sacrificial Slaughter" and "Monolith

BLOODTHORN Genocide

Album · 2006 · Black Metal

UMUR
"Genocide" is the 4th full-length studio album by Norwegian black metal act Bloodthorn. The album was released through Morningstar Records in February 2006.

I understand that the earlier releases by the band included keyboards and a female singer and that they probably are most correctly tagged symphonic black metal. "Genocide" is however a more stripped down release and what you get here is fast-paced war themed blasting blackened death metal. Raw and aggresssive with equal amounts of elements from black and death metal. No keyboards and no female singer. This is "in your face" and fiercely aggressive.

The only flaw on this album is that the tracks sound a bit too much the same. They are hard to tell apart even after many spins. But the quality is high throughout and with a powerful and raw sound production, in addition to the excellent musicianship, "Genocide" is quite a great album by Bloodthorn. Had there been just a bit more variation between the tracks I would have given a full 4 star (80%) rating but as it is I´ll give a 3.5 star (70%) rating and call it fair. I still find "Genocide" highly recommendable to fans of the genre.
