Blood Spore are a band from Pennsylvania that plays a mixture of black, doom and death metal and this is a review of their 2020 ep "Fungal Warfare Upon All Life" which will be released in February by Blood Harvest Records.
A very slow, dark and heavy doom metal sound starts off the ep along with the riffs also adding in a small amount of melody. Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams while the music also brings in a great amount of death metal elements and when the music speeds up a lot of blast beats can also be heard.
The music also adds in a decent mixture of both old school and modern influences while the solos and leads are also done in a 90's style.Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as a couple of the tracks being very long and epic in length, growls can also be heard at times and the music also captures a cavernous atmosphere, dark soundscapes can also be heard at the end of each song.
Blood Spore plays a musical style that takes black, doom and death metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover science fiction and mycology themes.
In my opinion Blood Spore are a very great sounding mixture of black, doom and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Hostile Fruiting Bodies". 8 out of 10.
