Blood - O Agios Pethane (1993)

   The early grindcore wave wasn't so huge at all like the thrash/death metal wave was, and similar bands were not so supported either. The darkest depths of underground stayed as their most common location to be found.
   By following the path of Napalm Death and Carcass, Blood created their own imaginations of extreme musickness. They sounded like taking a bit from both direction. At lyrics they were the same way into gore and political, societal topics, and musically both into classical short grinding performances, and death metal influenced complete themes. It's really like on the borderline of grindcore and death metal, includes the intense and dadaist temper of the first, and the heaviness and rough sound of the second. While ordinary grindcore bands were not famous diversive themes, and the effectiveness of their music usually based on unexpected and unpredictable events, often with morbid humor, Blood's music was more serious at all ways. Not the endeavor for effect was in their focus but to grind in high quality.
