Review: Colonel Blast – For The Greater Good

Maybe you remember my review, from back in May, about the Split Roast album. A split album that contained five Death Metal bands from the UK. One of them were Colonel Blast.

I was highly impressed with the two songs of Colonel Blast back then, and hoped for the band to send me their debut album for review purposes. They didn’t, so I bought it. Usually if the band doesn’t care to send me promos for a review, I just don’t give a crap about them anymore. If they don’t want the promotion from our site, I won’t force it upon them. It’s their loss. But I found myself going back to listen to the Split Roast, just to listen to Colonel Blast, multiple times. So I decided to just buy the album and then write about it. And that’s where we are today.

If you have listened to the Split Roast yourself, keep in mind that Colonel Blast feature a different line-up on their debut album. Their original vocalist, Matt Bolton, left the band after the release of their first album to move to New York. Make the jump to read my review of Matt Bolton’s only recorded work with Colonel Blast: For The Greater Good.


Review: Split Roast

Today I’m going to review a sampler called Split Roast by Condate Records, that includes songs by Colonel Blast (pictured on the upper left), Cancerous Womb (upper middle), Diascorium (upper right), Magpyes (lower left) and Dyscaphia (lower right).

Five Death Metal bands from the UK, twenty songs, almost 60 minutes of music and the CD only costs five British pounds. Sounds like a good deal to me but first, let’s listen to the album to see if it’s worth these five pounds. Make the jump for my review of Split Roast and take your time, it’s going to be a long one.
