Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
At long last, Blood Feast is reborn into the metal underground with the release of their highly anticipated third full-length album, The Future State Of Wicked. Fans old and new will not be disappointed, as the "holy trinity" of releases from the band's early days – Kill For Pleasure (1987), the Face Fate EP (1988) and Chopping Block Blues (1990) – inform much of the new album. All the speed, brutality, and twists ‘n' turns Blood Feast is known for are intact and in your face (9 of the 10 songs being written by original guitarist Adam Tranquilli), yet updated with modern production. Joining Adam are vocalist Chris Natalini and bassist Tom Lorenzo, along with some new blood in Joe Moore (drums) and CJ Scioscia (guitar).
Exploding right out of the gates with the evil-as-fuck thrashfest "INRI," The Future State of Wicked racks up one breathless, bloody attack after the next. In one sense, the spirit of '87 is alive and well in Blood Feast; their frenzied thrust is as rabid and red-eyed as ever, sounding like the crazed mania of men half their age. In another, perhaps more accurate sense, The Future State of Wicked is suffused with the wisdom of the ages, the whole span of thrash and speed metal history since Blood Feast's original days on the frontlines, and it results in an angry-yet-finessed slice of audial terror buttressed by well-rounded but never too-polished production.
