So… Plenty of you getting bored with melodic death or the Gothenburg style? Tired of gimmicky folk instruments or the good cop, bad cop vocals and think the "progressive" tag in front means too much meandering around? Enter Bloodshot Dawn, a bunch of UK youngsters, and perhaps your ears' new best friend.

Not bad actually. Nice mix of gothenburg style melody and the techier, proggy side of death metal. Basically it's the giant solos/leads that make this worth a listen.

I love this album... bought it rather impulsively on bandcamp, but it's becoming one of my favorite releases for this year so far.

If Jeff Loomis were to ever record a death metal album, it would sound like this.

If you've never got a kick out of melodic death before this would be the album to do it. Great stuff.

I like this one. This is one of the best band I discovered during the last four seasons. Keep going BD.

Really interesting album- these guys are obviously drawing infliuence from many bands that span several genres as well and it seems to flow quite well. The leads are pretty sick.

Really excited to see what this band can do on future releases. While this album is great for a debut I think they have the potential to make something more innovative and develop their own sound.

Pretty good record. Sounds pretty similar to Exhumed' material but nevertheless they seems to notch up the victory from this album.

I agree with Vannith. if you haven't hit it in from melodic death metal band, this record will knock you up and teach you what melodic death metal record sounds like.
