Ukrainian outfit Balfor have been around for quite some time, but have waited until now to unleash a proper collection of blackened thrash metal that encompasses all things evil entitled BARBARIC BLOOD. While this quartet’s slightly symphonic blend of black metal fury is doing very little in the way of breaking new ground in the extreme metal genre, the consistent surge of aggression and vitriol they commandeer on this nine-track excursion abides by the more melodic template set by the likes of Satyricon and Dimmu Borgir with a demonic diligence guiding over every blast beat and guttural growl.
