I hadn't heard anything about Vomitory up to the moment I read an interview of Fenriz (Darkthrone) who, trying to sound funny, said that Vomitory could never make a sold out live at Oslo! So, being curious, I searched their discography. The first album that fell in my hands was Blood Rapture. From the first listening I fell in love with this album, especially with its music!
Well, put the album on the CD-player, press the "play" button and then you will face: "Chaos Fury"! The title of the album's first song is the perfect description of what you are going to face! It is a terrific Death Metal song, powerful, really fast, with great riffs; it is the right song to be the opener of the album! All the songs of the album are great, including furious drumming, fast riffing and some great melodies which make it very pleasant to listen! "Blood Rapture", the last and same-titled song is different than the other as it is the only song of the album that starts with a slow tempo! But don't be afraid, that lasts for only two minutes, as it after turns into a Death Metal anthem!
Generally, Vomitory worked enough for this album, something that we can easily assume. I must not forget to mention that the guitar work is awesome! Every riff and Every melody are just great. The vocals are nice, but I would prefer it if they where a bit different. The drummer does good work but in 1-2 songs I feel that the way he plays doesn't help the guitars sound good (example: on "Nailed, Quarted, Consumed" after 0:36). The production is nice and helps the guitars sound perfect.
The highlight on this album is not the songs (which are all great) but the great work that the guitarists do! I am not talking about technique but about the amazing music that Vomitory wrote. Blood Rapture is a smashing Death Metal album and surely deserves a try! I won't mention best songs as I'm having a difficulty myself in deciding which is my favorite one, because I love them all!
