Bloody good. - 95%

MorLadim, July 21st, 2007

This album is sheer awesome. I'd never heard of Black Symphony before, and one day on a whim I picked up Tears of Blood. What I got was one of the most complete, consistant albums ever.

Musically, this album is just pure win. Awesome shredding riffs and guitar solos are accompanied by some excellent drumming. It's a fairly proggy album, but don't get turned off by that. The guitar work is truely a highlight.

There's absolutely no bad songs on this album, and each is just as good as the other. It's extremely hard to pick out the best songs of the album, but if forced, I'd say Black Symphony Pt. II would be the standout. It's finishing solo just sums up the album. Pure awesome. It's one of the few albums I cannot just listen to one song from, I have to play the entire album. It's got fairly intelligent lyrics, and the entire album tends to stay within a similar theme.

If you can find it, BUY this album, it's just that good.
