Boomkat Product Review:
When I strolled to work this morning the last thing I was expecting to stumble across was a full-on metal album released on Geoff Barrow (Portishead)'s Invada label. It's just not cricket is it? Well whatever it is, or isn't, Blood Island Raiders' debut full-length disc (following a handful of cdrs and a whole bunch of live shows) showcases their old-school metal charms quite magnificently. Also of note is the way the band uses Norwegian culture and imagery (even to the point of calling a track Darkthrone... blasphemy!) to emphasize the fact that this is, indeed metal. Don't be expecting some kind of subterranean blackened doom mind you, these guys are on the Iron Maiden/Black Sabbath tip, albeit with a good smattering of modern pop-metal appeal thrown in to help those rock-club dancefloors pump. It's no bad thing either, Blood Island Raiders (great name, by the way) handle their chosen style with ease and skill and have put together ten stomping rock anthems ready to get those graves turnin'. So to conclude, it might not sound like Darkthrone (which is indeed kind of a shame) but they still manage to stick it to the man... light up, and smoke out.
