fedor_hb_92eFedor Buzilevich of Ukrainian folk metal band Holy Blood has uploaded a new song ‘Готовься к битве’ (Demo 2012) translation ‘Get Ready for Battle’. If this song appears on a new album? I don’t no, there is little information, and my Russian is not so good. When there is more information, we will let you know of course. The song is available for streaming in the video below.

Holy Blood formed in 1999. The band is notable for being one of the few Christian bands in its genre, and the fact that they are the most successful group on its label Bombworks Records, and the band has been noted world wide despite being an underground group. Holy Blood has released five albums: “The Wanderer” (2002) “Waves are Dancing” (2005) “The Patriot”(2008) “Shining Sun” (2010) and “Day of Vengeance” (2014).

Holy Blood – “Day of Vengeance”

Day of VengeanceHoly Blood: Day of Vengeance put out in 2015 is a solid, dark, mid-paced, crust-covered melo-death record in its own right – no keys, flute or female vocals in this one – but two instrumental interludes and of course, sea-shore samples to begin and end the record. It is complete with death metal growls instead of the brilliantly cadenced mid to high + death growl vocals of the first few records – a vocal style that immediately identified the band, but I would have had trouble identifying Holy Blood from this record! This album includes a few baritone Ukranian/folk singing lines (although quite murky in the mix and sometimes out of tune). In some ways, it reminded me of early Sacrificium albums – minimalistic, dark, and crusty death metal.

After a good number of line-up changes, such as the departure of female vocalist Vera Knyazeva and the melodic guitar players who crafted the Hold Blood sound – Fedor Buzilevich has only preserved a shell of the energy of older Holy Blood records at the cost of vitality, brightness and color. Sonically, the record’s production is murky, with the drums and bass placed in the back of the mix, with the low, murky guitars and death-growls creating a sense of obscurity. Continue reading »
