'The Dream Calls For Blood' is the seventh album from the Californian thrash giants and the first since 2010s 'Relentless Retribution' album and this new release sees the band produce ten solid numbers which clearly demonstrate that this Death Angel show no signs of slowing down. You can hear a full stream of the album at the bottom of this page.

'Left For Dead' is a good solid start to the album showing the band in fine form with a great guitar riff neatly sandwiched between two mellow and lyrical guitar passages which counterpoint the faster main body of the song.

Likewise 'Son Of The Morning' continues on with a great guitar solo laid on top of a tolling bell giving this track a superbly atmospheric feel.

Article continues below...

   


'Fallen' has drummer Will Carroll using all his skills to thrash out the beat whilst the relentless guitar riff powers the song along. Words like "ignited" and "invited" during the chorus have some backing vocals added to them which gives them an immediacy, and if the band added this to their live set list you can imagine this section being used to good effect to get the audience interacting with the band.

'Execution/Don't Save Me' shows that Death Angel have more strings to their bow than just writing fast numbers - a fact which is neatly demonstrated by the intro here which is a nice acoustic guitar which is augmented with a subtle harmonising electric guitar track.

There's a breathing space between this intro and the main riff which has Carroll once again holding down a solid drum beat which literally explodes out of the silent speakers. Vocalist Mark Osegueda sounds more aggressive here than in previous numbers - almost shouting the lyrics at you at times.

'Detonate' has a slow (almost epic) intro which is enhanced by some doomy and echoy drumming laid beneath a simple guitar line before the main riff comes in. It's a nice steady riff, lasting as it does for well over a minute, building the tension wonderfully before the guitar and vocals finally kick in. This may not be the fastest song here but certainly amongst my favourite tracks. The fact that the vocals switch between singing and spoken sections just gives the track an extra element too.

Let's not forget the title track, 'The Dream Calls For Blood', of course, which at just over four minutes begins as a full-on-number before settling down to a more leisurely pace during the chorus before picking up pace once again after the main guitar solo. The chorus is repeated half a dozen times which burns itself onto your brain, and like 'Fallen' before it, this track could be used to great effect during the bands live set to get a bit of audience interaction.

Left For Dead
Son Of The Morning
Fallen
