Bloodbound: In the Name of Metal

Heavy/Power Metal
4.5/5.0

One of the great things about Sweden's Bloodbound is that they get it. They get how to do classic melodic heavy and power metal. The band returns with their fifth album In the Name of Metal.

Though the information is a bit dodgy, it appears the band lineup remains stable, notably with vocalist Patrik Johansson on his second album. Everything else that makes Bloodbound traditional melodic power metal band also stays true: strong vocal arrangements, big hooks, even bigger guitars, and a sturdy rhythm section. Actually, with In the Name of Metal, it sounds like Bloodbound has purposely ingested a stronger dose of heavy metal rock groove. These songs will have your toe tapping while you're banging your head and pumping your fist. Sons of Babylon, Mr. Darkness, Bounded By Blood, and Metalheads Unite, by example, are down right catchy heavy metal tunes. In the end, In the Name of Metal is another fine outing for Bloodbound. Easily recommended.

In Short
