BLOODSTAR- s/t LP (Desert Engine, Switzerland, 1988)

cover pix currently down BLOODSTAR like few other bands I ever heard managed to create a sound of their own. Definately not for people with a musical attention span of 1:34, but if you’re looking for a good slow enduring headfuck, BLOODSTAR’s mayhemic soundscapes will most likely amaze you as much as they amazed me for the past 18 years! I can’t think of an other LP from a swiss band that impressed me as much as this.

I wrote 3 different long drafts for this post, trying to find words for the effect BLOODSTAR’s debut has on me, some historical background and all. But now I think, I’ll just leave it up to you – get yourself some booze, smokes and subdue the lights. “L’Alba dei Morti viventi” is actually a cover version of GOBLIN’s contribution to George A. Romero’s “Dawn of the Dead” soundtrack. I can post the original too, if anybody wants – but I’ve learned that Metal has a hard-as-steel time on this blog ….. (except for Eric from Something I learned today and Malfeitor who used to run Dressed for the H-Bomb, who seem to enjoy truely good bad music from time to time).
