WHAT THE BLOOD REVEALED - ALBUM REVIEW


What The Blood Revealed is a 4 Piece Post Rock/Post-Metal Band from Irvine, Scotland

The members are:

scott - guitar
gav - bass
alan - drums
stuart - guitar

What The Blood Revealed (WTBR) are a superb Instrumental Progressive Post-Rock/Post-Metal Band that play with a great sense of passion and fury in equal measure.

If your into Pelican and Russian Circles you know what to expect as WTBR play the same type of music as those two bands. But don’t think that WTBR are mere copycats as they are not. They are their own top-notch band who add some truly haunting Post-Rock atmospherics into their music to be taken in their own right.

Their debut album Harbour Of Devils is an 8-song 53 minute of sublime example of loud atmospheric rock/metal music to thrill the senses to.

The 8 songs on show here offer some truly haunting Post-Rock/Post-Metal riffs. The album isn’t 100% Post Rock or 100% Post-Metal but a fine balancing act of the two. It does get very loud at times but WTBR also show their quieter post-rock side at times as well to great effect.

You know their will be a heavy pounding Post-Metal riff coming along to shake you to the core.

WTBR have been gaining a lot of praise from the musical press for their take on loud rock/metal music and its praise that is wholly justified. And they prove with this album they are a band to be reckoned with.

The album is full of superb anthemic Post-Rock/Post-Metal to get you head-banging in no time at all. The band are all superbly talented musicians which they prove time and time again on this amazing album.

Standout tracks include: “Embrace The Rational and Seek The Truthful”, “Waiting For The Storm” and my fave track “Cast A Drift In A Harbour Of Devils”

So with the guys being truly talented musicians they are equally creative with their song titles as well. Another great reason to check out this superb band. WTBR play sublime instrumental music to make you think as well as rock out to

The album is superbly produced from start to finish. This is a brilliant album from a wonderful band to discover. It’s great to see another great Scottish band releasing a top notch Post-Metal album to rival the more established names in the genre.

A truly breathtaking album that I have had the pleasure in reviewing. Simply a breathtaking release that the band should rightly be proud of. Great work guys.

You can buy this superb release when it’s released in March 2012. I recommend you all to check out this superb band now.

Highly Recommended.
