After the awesome "As Time And Tide Erodes Stone" from last year, California's Lake of Blood are back. This time with "The Burial Grounds Sessions" an EP recorded live in Salem, at the Burial Ground. Some of you might recognize that from being the home to the Woodsmoke collective, who gifted us with awesome bands like Munn, Leech, Merkstave, and many more. In this EP, Lake of Blood present two hefty, impressive rehearsal recordings on this 18-minute cassette. The sound is a little bit stuffy, but hey.. it's a live recording. Dwelling between some obscure doom and furious black metal "The Burial Grounds Sessions" shows us a more aggressive facet of the band. I mean it, these tracks are devastating. I totally got into the whole aura of this recording, the songs, the recording, the whole environment is just suffocating. This tape will be soon available on Eternal Warfare. Meanwhile, Lake of Blood will be playing Gilead Media Music Fest next month, a must-see band indeed. Recommended!
