SKELATOR - BLOOD EMPIRE



#review


BAND SKELATOR

ALBUM BLOOD EMPIRE

LABEL GATES OF HELL

OUT Sept 30th, 2022

OUR RATING 80/100


The new four-song EP from Seattle epic speed HM band SKELATOR “BLOOD EMPIRE” was out on Sept 30th, 2022 on Gates Of Hell.

After 2019’s Cyber Metal, Skelator published Blood Empire EP as a starter before their next full-LENGHT. A four-song work that captures the band at their epic and thrashing best. The EP is available on 12" vinyl and digitally.Recorded in September and October 2021 at the band’s rehearsal studio and home studios, Skelator benefitted from the production skills of guitarist Robbie Houston, who mixed the album. (Collin Jordan of The Boiler Room Mastering handled mastering duties.) Houston tracked Patrick Seick’s drums and Conde-Houston’s vocals while leaving fellow guitarist Rob Steinway and bassist Leona Hayward to record on their own.

DEEDS OF HONOR is the first shot, opened by an instrumental an majestic intro and followed by a faster and thrashy attack.

GOOD DAY TO DIE starts again majestic and lilting, mixing epic parts with tempo changes and guitar harmonies; definitely a brilliant shot!

THE FIRST EMPIRE, after a first part more epic, shows in the second one a classic hm attitude, while last BLOODWINE is another brilliant shot that ends in the best way this great EP.

TO RECOMMEND!
