"Bloodlet, Entheogen (Victory Records, 1996)Okay, to start off with: Bloodlet are on Victory Records (think Integrity here).Now that you know what you're getting into, buy away. You know what to expect. Hardcore vocal delivery, metal/core crossover music. Right?To an extent. Bloodlet transcend the usual hardcore stylings by doing such things as recording songs that actually last more than five minutes, incorporating jazz and classical influences, and playing with the mixing board (listen to "Something Wicked" in headphones). Rather than the usual wall of sound, the band breaks every once in a while for a more obviously jazz-influenced bridge (and the lead vocalist's voice sounds oddly comparable to Maynard James Keenan's, during Tool's live renditions of "Bottom").Bottom line is, if you don't mind the hardcore vocal style, you're probably going to get something out of this one. Very good stuff. *** ½"
