Blood Freak have been making a name for themselves throughout the last 10 years with their horrified brand of gore grind and death metal, so enjoying said genres of mighty metal is a prerequisite to getting full enjoyment of Mindscraper, the band’s debut for Willowtip Records. Fans can really go either way with this one. It’s basically a combo of their fantastic previous effort—2007’s very grinding effort, Multiplex Massacre—and its more death n’ groove, meaty, lower-tuned predecessor, Live Fast, Die Young … and Leave A Flesh Eating Corpse. Blood Freak utilize the heavy bottom end as much as they can with the new offering—it requires a bit of patience, because initially, it’s going to feel like a blur of songs. However, a few listens in, you’ll be grasping the blood-coagulated, old, wound-gooey groove-riffing until that old wound is fresh again. Mindscraper kind of reminds me a bit of what Pig Destroyer would be like if they had songs that lasted four to five minutes. Blood Freak opted for longer cuts of meat here to let songs develop—when the band has leads or solos jar into the mix of buzzed-bass-grizzled fun, they strike a definite poignant nerve. Mindscraper isn’t quite the follow-up I would’ve liked to have after Multiplex, but it serves my bloody needs. –Bryer Wharton
