What is more brutal than Iced Earth, more melodic than Meshuggah and learned from Gothenborg-Sound without copying In Flames? Right. Fuelblooded. No wonder those newcomers from the Netherlands hit the bull´s eye with their debut-album: all bandmembers have gained many years experience in the Metal business. Starting off 1989 as Sacramental Sachem, they needed several Line-Up changes and a new bandname to create the right chemistry for this Metal masterpiece. Lyrics above the average, great cover artwork by Travis Smith and last but not least ten cool songs between Speed to mid-tempo to Doom you cannot have running „just in the background“ – enthusiastic headbanging guaranteed! Personal faves: The Hangman´s Burden, The Silence.
