Blood Of The Infidel has glorious album cover that was crafted by the band West Of Hell favorite Travis Smith, with album liner design/layout by Kevin Moore at Soft Surrogate. The Vancouver band plays an very intense and very interesting amalgam of progressive metal. They will release sophomore album Blood of the Infidel on April 1, coinciding with the start of The Infidels Tour of Canada with compatriots Expain. The song Infidels from the upcoming album,
West Of Hell has riff with old-school influences, yet evolved with a modern sound. Blood Of The Infidel blends with deftness traditional metal, thrash, and death metal, built on a foundation of penetrating melodies and progressive song structures. Vocalist Chris Valagao from Zimmer Holes has reached new heights on the new album. The songs ranging from thick death metal growls to the soaring notes of epic power metal, even adding the occasional harmony!
Buttressed with shredding guitar solos, the album benefits as well from focused studio time that resulted in a crushing riff tone, sharp, sinewy bass lines, and a drum performance (studio only) by Vancouver brother Ash Pearson from Revocation and 3 Inches Of Blood that is as taut as it is tough.
