Swedish power metallers BLOODBOUND will release their new album “Unholy Cross” today, March 18th. It’s the first with new vocalist Patrik Johansson, and even more: “Unholy Cross” marks the band’s highly-anticipated return to the sound of the celebrated sound of their debut album “Nosferatu”, which was released in 2006. Combined with the most powerful and best production so far, this album will amaze every fan.
The song “Drop The Bomb” is available HERE for free download (right-click on the link and choose “Save Target As”)
When a band lists their influences as Accept, Twisted Sister, Motley Crue,Motorhead, Thin Lizzy, Loudness, Dokken, Judas Priest and Black Sabbath, that is more than enough to pique my curiosity. Hello Suckers is the sophomore effort from this band of Italian rockers, and I have to say, that Nasty Tendency has avoided the sophomore slump. Hello Suckers rocks hard all the way through!
I absolutely love the music on this CD, however, there are some spots where Mark Bonavita’s vocals are somewhat hard to understand. This is by no means the fault of the singer. I have found with many Italian rock singers that their accent plays a heavy effect on their vocals. Bonavita’s vocals are no exception. While his accent is strong, his vocals are still decent.
Some of the strongest songs on the CD are ‘Stay Heavy”, “Switchblade Serenade”, “Burn Baby Burn”, and “Metal Strikes Again”. If you are you looking for a dose of new heavy rock to listen to, you could do a lot worse than Hello Suckers.

“We’ve been working and perfecting these tunes since right after we played Rocklahoma 2009 and it feels great for people to finally get to hear this record.” vocalist Andy Haught states. “While I dont think these encompass the entire scope of the 13 songs on KOSD, I do feel these two songs are a great introduction to our energy and vibe, and I cant wait for people to hear the rest of the record when we finalize our release details.”
The single is available from iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, eMusic and other legal download sites.
