‘Your God Will Bleed’ is the debut album from the Norwegian thrash metal band, Hellish Outcast which features Keep of Kalessin’s Thebon on vocals. It is the follow-up to the 2008 EP ‘Raping- Killing- Murder’.

The opening track ‘The View, So Disgusting’ features thrash metal guitars and somewhat metalcore-sounding vocals resulting in a rather uncomfortable mix of styles. The melodic parts towards the end of the song provide a welcome, albeit temporary relief to the noise. Sadly the title track ‘Your God Will Bleed’ continues in the same vein offering little to the listener apart from speed and aggression.

‘Genocide’ starts off well thanks to the death metal vocals and drums in the beginning. There are even a few well executed melodic parts here. Sadly there’s not enough of either to make up for the awful metalcore vocals. Things only get worse with the singer’s squealing ruining the aptly named ‘Muffled Screams’.

The vocals in ‘Ten Times Stronger’ bear a resemblance to those of their fellow country-men Grimfist. This song also stands out due to its memorable guitar solo along with a touch of groove metal. The last few tracks have a certain speed and ferocity to them which reminds me of Slayer. This influence is especially evident in ‘You Will Scream’ which is one of the few highlights on here.

Overall this is a very confusing debut album and I’m still not sure what they were trying to achieve with this.
