If you think that the Taiwanese metal scene begins and ends with Chthonic then you’re wrong. Look beyond and you’ll see that there are more to it than first meet the eye. Bloody Tyrant is another Taiwanese black metal band. I was, if not completely blown away at least touched by the wind the first time I heard this album. There was something so raw and direct about it that I sat up and took notice. It’s like you’re there, right in front of the music being played live. I haven’t felt that force from an album in a long time. There’s nothing complacent about the sound. No tired old tricks, just full on black metal. That the music is interesting adds to the overall impression of this being some very interesting takes on black metal. Not the same old tired washed-out jeans. And that is what I call a worthy album.
