Blood – O Agios Pethane (1993)

Blood remain one of the most criminally underrated bands in the grindcore world. You really have to peel back the surface layers to find appreciation for them. It’s weird, because they have been around since the genre’s heyday, and as another writer so well put, they are like an amalgamation of both early Carcass and early Napalm Death.

O Agios Pethane proves however that Blood are so much more than the sum of their parts. On first listening, their loose, down-tuned grind can be perhaps quite easily dismissed, but stick around and you’ll see that the band are quite well travelled when it comes to extreme genres and influences, and melt them all together into some disgusting horrible turgid soup of an album. It is well worth your time.
