LOUDBLAST - Sublime Dementia LP New arrivals


It's a damn shame that Loudblast aren't remembered alongside Death, Pestilence and Morbid Angel, because what they created with Sublime Dementia is intelligent, well played and finely crafted death metal. In fact, this fits somewhere between Testimony of the Ancients and Human, both in terms of writing and overall sound.

Hervé Coquerel really deserves special mention, because his fluid playing really helped Loudblast grow by leaps and bounds. Stéphane Buriez is still doing deathly vocals, somewhat between early Unleashed and Covenant-era Morbid Angel. That means clear, but nasty. The other great element is the leads, which are definitely in the Chuck Schuldiner-style.
Without a doubt an overlooked album that needs more praise.
