Weapons To Hunt are the ‘sequel’ to Infinited Hate, featuring former and current Sinister and Supreme Pain members. This first album, by the way, comes with session bass parts performed by Erwin Harreman, member of, and please hold on, don’t be afraid: Sinister / Supreme Pain. …a somewhat incestuous collegiality.
I do not care, for this band brings material in the vein of Infinited Hate, evidently, as well as earlier Sinister and Supreme Pain and several of the band members’ other bands and projects. Blessed In Sin is a monstrous, eardrum-piercing brain-bomber, a sonic attack on man’s innocence, reeking of putrefying bowel-content. It’s harsh, it’s brutal, it’s merciless.
But it lacks of variation too. The songs sound way too similar to each other. That’s a pity, because the Dutch scene is so enormously fabulous, and with this cast one would expect another killer release. Blessed In Sin does kill, but rather from boredom than from absorbance.
Damn, of course I am exaggerating a little, but I just want to make a point. I don’t get why such an experienced partnership cannot reach the level of the three Infinited Hate-albums, nor a record reminiscent, qualitatively, to the likes of Supreme Pain, Sinister and the great other acts these guys are involved with. Sad and disappointing, that’s all. Better next time, I hope.
