Slayer like raining blood. Satanic Bloodspraying like draining blood. They make this loud and clear with the furious opening track of At The Mercy Of Satan. There isn’t much information that can be found about this Bolivian band. In fact, the only real press info on them states just that. That’s okay though because what is known is that they wholeheartedly worship at the altar of classic Impaled Nazarene, and that’s enough in my book. Just one listen to this record and the connection is as clear as day.
From the first second of At The Mercy Of Satan an unwavering black metal assault is unleashed that continues charging forward for eight tracks backed by all the fires of hell. Satanic Bloodspraying’s brand of black metal has heavy thrash leanings much in the vein of genre forefathers Venom and even a bit of early Bathory. Oh, and of course, Impaled Nazarene. This album offers up precious gems such as “Satanic Skullfuck” and “Necro Dominatrix” that prove this is fun for the whole family. There isn’t a dull moment as this band has not time for filler and all that shit. Every bit of this album counts.
The level of vitriol and raw aggression the songs possess is staggering. The energy on tracks like “Wraath Of Baal” and the scorching title track will leave you feeling winded. Satanic Bloodspraying do slow it down a bit for all the couples out there with a nice little slow jam. The majestic “March Of The Dead.” I swear “The Day The Earth Stood Still” is a black metal dance song. It’s sure to have the dance floor go from headbanging to ass shaking in a live setting. Really every track is gold. Gold washed in blood. There’s just a certain level of grittiness and noisiness to everything that makes it dirty, and this works well in the bands favor.
Hands down, this album is a must have. Anyone into thrash or black metal will more than appreciate it. Even if you just want to hear someone who sounds possessed shouting about all things satanic and evil for just under thirty minutes then this is surely for you. Steal it, illegally download it, or buy it on any format. It doesn’t matter how you go about it. You just need to hear this album.
