BloodBeast #10 on African Metal’s top 100 African metal bands!

10. BLOODBEAST

“Moving away from Lelahell’s ambitious death metal is a band from down South that plays death in a manner principally akin to the way those who invented the subgenre played.This band is Bloodbeast and is fronted by Van Zyl Alberts who is also no spring chicken. Van666 first came to the scene with Architecture of Aggression where he exercised his guitar skills over a landscape of conceptual death metal that was highly critical of religion and societal establishments. He has since moved on with Bloodbeast who are leaner, meaner and more menacing than a thousand other bands who only claim “brutal” than actually play it. Bloodbeast’s recently released Out For Blood places them damn near top of the heap when it comes to deeply searing old school African death metal that is utter realness”.-African Metal
