This album is all about greatness and importance of the brutal genre; "Ominous Bloodline" is the epitome of violence mixed with technicality and complexity at the same time.
This band is actually a bit old (they started back in 1991); after a demo, a Full Length album and one EP they finally released their "groundbreaking" piece called "Recounts Of Disembodiment" in 1998. With that album Beheaded became stronger and stronger each day, and of course they also gathered a lot of fans all over the world. Now the band is back with "Ominous Bloodline", a more polished piece with incredible music and awesome execution; a revolutionary album waiting to destroy each cell and neuron of your brain.
The music has an incredible structure, every guitar riff is brutal and catchy at the same time; the drum beats are more than impressive (those irregular patterns are overwhelming believe me), and the vocal work is really disturbing and incredibly deep, Melchior Borg is by far one of the best growlers nowadays no doubt. So generally speaking the album is shaped in many musical ways, the minds surrounding "Ominous Bloodline" managed to add catchy beats, rough tones and chords, brutal as hell music and many other juicy features including awesome guitar solos (rare characteristic in a Brutal Death band) everything in just one CD.
This album is really remarkable, every single track has a great "fragment" that creates different atmospheres over and over again; there's even an outstanding instrumental track forming the intermezzo of the album in an excellent way ("Depths Of Sore"). There is no bad song in this record, every single tune has something good to worship, and believe me, you'll be playing this album more than twice in a row and every time you'll find something new and awesome in it.
The production is clean as water; every instrument sounds really loud and clear in a really refined way (I'm really impressed by the drum-cymbals, specially the ride which sounds marvelously well). Even the artwork is very good; it's simple, but good none the less. Take my advice, buy "Ominous Bloodline" as soon as possible, you'll find one of the most interesting releases Brutal Death Metal can offer.
