bloody terror - diaboli celeritate 450

Bloody Terror are an international band with members from both Ukraine and Russia that plays a melodic mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Diaboli Cereritate" which was released by Metal Scrap Records.
Acoustic guitars that have an ethnic feeling to them start off the album along with some heavy riffing and an atmospheric sound in the background which also brings symphonic elements to the bands musical style and when solos and leads are added into the music they bring in even more of a melodic edge to the recording and there is also a good amount of melody in the riffing as well.
Vocals mix high pitched black metal screams and deep death metal growls together and they also bring in a brief use of spoken word parts and whispers at times along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and on some of the tracks melodic clean singing can be heard at times and they bring in a more operatic atmosphere to the symphonic elements of the bands musical style.
Throughout the recording you can hear a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with blast beats being added into certain sections of the recording and they also bring in operatic female vocals at times  and as the album progresses you can hear a small amount of progressive rock elements and folk metal being added into the synths.
Bloody Terror takes a 90's style of symphonic black metal and mixes it with the more modern melodic death metal sound to update this genre for the modern day, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover darkness and occult themes.
In my opinion Bloody Terror are a very great sounding melodic and symphonic mixture of black and  death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Devil's Speed" "Magic Of the Moon" and "Eternal-Life Vampirism".

Scream Magazine 192Dette er en aldri så liten godbit. Trioen kommer fra Ukraina og Russland, og er nå ute med sin andre fullengder. Musikalsk snakker vi melodiøs og episk black metal med et lite hint av death metal, og det funker veldig bra. Skiva består av åtte spor, de musikalske kontrastene er store. Melodilinjene er sterke og de innehar den egenartede vrien vi er på jakt etter. Partiene spenner fra det sørgmodige til det majestetike, og som lytter blir man stadig overrasket. Det benyttes flere typer vokalføring deriblant black, death, kvinnevokal og koringer. Alle fungerer bra, men black-vokalen er den beste. Jeg finner svært få dødpunkter på skiva, og alle låtene er sterke. Min favoritt er nok den stemningsfulle "Winter's Sunset", men de andre sporene er aldri langt bak. Denne kommer til å bli spilt mye her i heimen, og jeg foreslår at du også tar deg en lytt.

Bloody Terror, a Melodic Black Metal band hailing from Russia, released their sophomore effort after signing with Metal Scrap Records in November 2014. The band was created in 2010, releasing their first single, a cover of KALMAH’s “Dance of the Water”. They later released their debut full length “Shadow of Death”. After a line-up change, the guy’s creative direction changed a bit, creating “Diaboli Celeritate”.   “Diaboli Celeritate” “contains eight powerful songs of Melodic and furious Black Metal with a little Death Metal touches, demonic lyrics, and epic choirs.” There is a listening time of Bloody Terror is for fans of DIMMU BORGIR,CRADLE OF FILTH, ELUVEITIE, and obviously KALMAH.
Track one, “Terror (Darkness Comes)” starts with a little Japanese Folk sound and slowly adds the bass, drums, and guitar to round out a truly unique intro sound. It then changes 180 to a much more aggressive Black Metal. The main vocals are ruff and gritty and the backup vocals are incredibly low and guttural. They are interesting to the mixture of music they have chosen to create. The guitar riffs are incredible. The drums are fast and really well done. I love that they don’t overpower the track, but are still in your face.
“Devils Speed” is key heaven. They are almost outer space, atmospheric. There are so many vocals intertwined in this track and each hold their own beautifulness, but when they are put together, it was mind blowing how well it worked and how creative the track sounded. Choir, angelic vocals, mixed with the lead vocals, and then the guttural vocals added in for good measure. The drums again are incredibly fast and just done with extreme intelligence. The guitars and the keys fight it out a bit for a fun instrumental struggle.
“Revelation” is another one where the keys really make it Atmospheric with a taste Symphonic and then add in the bits of Black and Melodic Metal. The guitars are so low. The keys with the drums keep this track on pace, but the lowness of the guitar riffs are immaculate.
Track seven “Eternal Life – Vampirism” starts with a great guitar riff that is higher than most of the tracks on the album, really allowing them to give a different tone to the track. The bass echoes the guitars in perfection. This track we get to hear a bit more of a Pagan Metal undertone.
“Diaboli Celeritate” is a great album. I really enjoyed the listen. It is completely creative and mixes genres, bursting through the barriers that tend to be placed on music. I also believe the mixing of the vocals is perfect. For those metal heads that like music that you can’t put under one genre, these are your guys. Check them out.

With the widespread reach of the internet, it has become a lot easier to collaborate, work together and other fancy words of that nature regardles of borders and distance as a whole. A great example of why this is a good thing is right here: Bloody Terror. Sure, the distance between the Ukraine and Russia on a map, no doubt the almost instantaneous conversing helped nonetheless. The three like-minded individuals that make up Bloody Terror have walked in the footsteps of other very Melodic Black Metal acts such as Cradle of Filth (some of it, anyway), Dimmu Borgir and Kalmah. And while they have only been at it for five short years, I have no doubt whatsoever that they will end up rising above all of the above (perhaps with the exeption of Cradle of Filth – they have become legends for a reason, after all). All in all, their second full-length release, Diaboli Celeritate, contains eight tracks and has a running total just short of thirty-seven minutes. Almost forty minutes filled with traditional Black Metal, albeit with a Melodic twist (one that is most present on the excellent track ”Eternal Life – Vampirism”). Exactly how the Melodic twist manifests itself varies a bit from track to track, but it is always present and clear, yet without completely stealing the show from the main attraction (just the way I like this particular sub-genre). All in all, Bloody Terror is a band that I will be looking forward to hearing more about, and I will most definitely be keeping my eye on posters adorned with their name. Sadly, ”Vampirism” is not to be found on YouTube, so instead, please enjoy ”Devil’s Speed”.
