Arrogant Destruktor – Written in Blood from the Blade

From the birthplace of al things heavy, Birmingham in the United Kingdom, Arrogant Destruktor unleash their third full-length release the openly antagonistic Written in Blood from the Blade.

Arrogant Destruktor is the epitome of their namesake. Their music is tough, unbridled and born with the power that utters belief in your own convictions provides. Combine that with pure raw unholy black metal and you have a concoction of hate bile and vitriol, that is complimented by buzzsaw guitars, extreme percussion and truly abhorrent vocals. From Opener’’ Dirt and Ruin’’ through to ‘’ Disease and the Terminal Breath’’ this is tough urban black metal stripped of the tired mythology and excess but just a willingness to attack with every song.

It is true blackness given a thrash and death metal edge that clings to just this side of sanity.

At times it leaves you numb, but that is purely from the relentless nature of their music.

Though it does contain the briefest respites, the atmospheric’’ Mourning the Lost Symphonies ‘and their excellent version of Shaman (Necromantia cover) you have a record that harkens back to when violence was inherent in the music. For further proof of their intent? The unrelenting ‘’The Brand’’ and the destructive groove is hidden within ‘’The Snarling Jaws of Wolves’’.

Written in Blood from the Blade is the album that inspires violence through its straight-up unrelenting attack. Given the glorious Awakening records treatment, Arrogant Destruktor delivers pure old-school glory that is uncompromising, and cares little for trends and the sensibilities of the mainstream.
