But that doesn’t affect this release much, ’cause other things are perfect. I hope they will continue their way in order to find their own sound they had on Book Of The Dead, before line-up and sound changes. The songs pound out of your speakers with big, heavy riffs, intricate leadwork that wraps around them like silky Christmas ribbons and marching, militaristic tempos, sometimes stodgy and rhythmic like the marches of loyal soldiers, other times rapid and unruly like the fire of a machine gun. Truth be told, apart from the band’s token ballad “Brothers Of War”, which sees this band leaning a bit into the realm of soft, keyboard tinged Axel Rudi Pell territory, this entire album could easily be mistaken for a number of better efforts out of Gus G during his early runs with Firewind and Dream Evil, with perhaps the latter’s Dragonslayer being the best overall comparison. Good sides of this release:

Good sides of this release: It is great representative song for this release, that’s why it appeared first on YouTube. Some of them have to grow on listener, and that will keep you glued to this release.
It takes what the band did before and improves upon it, tightening the hooks, upping the heaviness and making the songs flow better. Urban breed was out of the picture again and it seems they decided to take a step bloodbound unholy cross to the sounds of Nosferatu and Book of the Dead. Both of the Olsson brothers are just fantastic players, and can apparently wing out killer riffs and leads like they were born to do it.
Listening to “Unholy Cross”, Bloodbound’s new work, criss me feel awkward. Every chorus soars like an angry patriotic hymn to battle, each riff and lead hammers out like the first warning blaze to signal the coming of some enemy to bloodbound unholy cross and kill.
bpoodbound Prior to the turn of the decade, the ever-shifting musical direction of Swedish power metal newcomers with some old comers along for the ride Bloodbound could have been chalked up to a combination of timing and uncontrolled lineup changes.
It has slower tempo, calm vocals, clean guitar intro Bloodbound’s members use that formula because they can, and they do it great. Unholy Cross won’t change the world but it’s an album fans of the genre should pick up without hesitation, particularly if you’re a fan of the more mid-paced power metal anthems the Swedes seem to do so well.
Originally written for http: With the throwing off of the futurist trappings of the recent past, the fire has been rekindled and with it a streamlined, right for the jugular approach to metal pours over every second unholu this entire album.
Ah, good old Bloodbound. From power ballad, slower and faster songs, to extremely face-melting bloodbound unholy cross songs.
By the time we reach “The Ones We Left Behind”, we’re bloorbound for anything, but uhnoly for the epic tone of this bloodbound unholy cross anthem with moderate speed and assertive riffing to give it a certain grandeur.
These guys make power metal like it should have been – intense, powerful, creative, massive, technical, etc.
But that doesn’t affect this release much, ’cause other things are perfect. Patrik Johansson is the new singer, straight out of Dawn of Silence, and he really outdoes himself here.
With hard and aggressive guitar riffs and catchy bloodbound unholy cross and hooks, the album just finds a way to vloodbound infectious and entertaining to fans of the band and genre. This is the sort of organic stuff that doesn’t require a trip to Whole Foods in order to enjoy, and has an old fashioned charm to it without needing to keep your elbows off the table.
Longtime vocalist Urban Breed left Bloodbound in the dust again after the group’s seminal “Tabula Rasa,” but have no fear; his replacement Patrik Johansson does not disappoint.
How can one forget those head-crushing riffs and epic chorus at the beginning, and the rest of the song as well. Again coming back to “Moria,” there’s clearly no protracted guitar solo or unnecessary sections, just riffs and verses that lash and crosd chorus that grabs you by the shoulders and makes you bang your head, whether you like it or not.
There are eleven tracks throughout “Unholy Cross,” and each one makes bloodbound unholy cross adrenaline flow with punch after punch of stellar musicianship. I thought they will hardly find fitting replacement this time, but I was wrong.
All of their solos are perfect except Tabula Rasabloodbounv is a rare thing.
EmpyrealMarch 26th, The reason I would put it to would be the excellent guitar work of brothers Tomas and Henrik Olsson, with creative power bloodbound unholy cross, riffs, crosx, shreds and solos driving each track on the CD. WishmasterTheDarkAugust bloodbound unholy cross, Drop The Bomb is as devastating as those atomic bombs dropped in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, made of faster tempo, strong and massive riffs and refrains.
I find stuff like this hard to get into occasionally, but “Unholy Cross” gets the job done, quicker and more effectively than what most would expect. That is what I feel is the strongest point of Unholy Cross; this is straight ahead no bullshit power metal which fans of bands such as Nocturnal Rites, Iron Fire or Hammerfall are going to have a great time with.
The bloodbkund pound out of your speakers with big, heavy riffs, intricate leadwork that wraps around them like silky Christmas ribbons and marching, militaristic tempos, sometimes stodgy and rhythmic like the marches of loyal soldiers, other times rapid and unruly like the fire of a machine gun.
