Accept Meets AC/DC

From 2003 to 2009 there was this band called Debauchery who played hard rock with cookie monster vocals, and with 6 albums to their credit in only 6 years they were the definition of a hard working band. 2010 saw Debauchery change its name to Blood God, and with the change came a different vocal style, with singing that reminds us of Brian Johnson (AC/DC) and Udo Dirkschneider (U.D.O., ex-Accept). Ever since then the band has clung to their cookie monster roots by releasing each new album with not only singing (Blood Good) but also monster vocals (Debauchery): same songs, but different vocals as a double LP. Perhaps the goal is to keep old fans and new alike, while creating lots of extra content. 2022 brings us the newest album from Blood God / Debauchery: Demons Of Rock N’ Roll with lots of solid, heavy duty Rock to head bang to.

Demons of Rock n’ Roll

With 10 catchy songs coming in at just under 38 minutes, Blood God has put together a solid LPs worth of material designed to fit on vinyl. Right from the opening title track “Demons of Rock n’ Roll” we are hit with punchy guitars and a rock steady rhythm section, laying down a bluesy kind of metal you’d expect to find on an older Accept album. The gritty vocals of Thomas “Bal” Gurrath work perfectly with the grinding, straight forward sound. “Going to Hell” has a more AC/DC feel, with its hard driving tempo and Brian Johnson style singing. As we get to track 3 “Nude Nuns” we swing seamlessly back towards an Accept style. The rest of the album continues in this vein, with lots of energy to keep fans foot stomping with a big smile.

Final Notes

BLOOD GOD – Demons Of Rock N’ Roll is a very solid if predictable album full of hard rocking tunes that will never go out of style. While the band in no way re-invents the wheel, they do justice to the style and sound that has been laid down in the past. The album is a good listen, and Hard Rock/Heavy Metal fans will find lots to like. If you are a Blood God / Debauchery fan and completist, you’ll want to pick up the double album which has alternate versions of all the songs with the monster vocals. This reviewer doesn’t see the need for the 2nd disc, but that’s just an opinion. No matter which vocal version you prefer, Demons Of Rock N’ Roll is definitely worth a listen. Support the music you like by purchasing the album!
