The prolific Finnish Black/Thrash triumvirate Bonehunter unleashed their fourth studio album last year, a Hells Headbangers Records release entitled ‘Dark Blood Reincarnation System’ that has been put out on CD, cassette and LP. A maelstrom is violent noise would be first impression of Bonehunter; a fast flowing bout of hectic ear abuse that punishes and penetrates the brain from moment one with scorching, ravenous vocals, darkened volatile riffs, thundering drum tones that create a barrage of oppressive and chaotic insanity, and lastly a bass playing style that rumbled and batters throughout. ‘Dark Blood Reincarnation System’ is an album that doesn’t hang around. It batters and bludgeons uncontrollably and remorselessly but at the same time doesn’t excite me on a personal level. For my personal taste, this is lacking a spark; its pretty samey and just doesn’t engage me in any way. So whilst the album is listenable, it’s also an opus that I’ll have forgotten as soon as this review is finished.
