Staff review by

It always happens when you're least expecting it. You're in the midst of a coffee break in between analysing financial reports, brain half numb from staring at numbers the whole morning. You press play on some unknown album expecting the same old uninspired stuff. Especially when the band is unsigned, plays melodic death metal and it's their second album and you think "can't be that good." And then the music hits you, knocking you down on your proverbial arse, leaving you dazed and confused. The culprit behind this unprovoked shock and awe campaign is Bloodshot Dawn and the lethal weapon is Demons.

Rating: 9 Fantastic stuff, Melodeath's best kept secret. If you find yourself having difficulty enjoying melodeath of recent years, check this out and you won't be disappointed.

Technical, accessible, soaring melodies, guest solos from Per Nilsson, Chris Amott and Teemu Mantysaari... it's just hands-down fun. Melodeath done right imo.

Rating: 9 This album is SO GOOD!!! Loved the self-titled but this just takes it to new heights. I want to just bathe in some of those solos. The juxtaposition of warmth and harshness is just perfection.

Rating: 8 The band's most consistent and solid album yet, even if at only 8 tracks I feel a tiny bit underwhelmed (I would have preferred a few more only because I feel the creative ideas here don't seem stretched out to their full potential). That said, it's a real powerhouse instrumentally. The guitar work is very efficient and well-executed all the way through, and that bass work on songs like "Inadequacy" is just insane. They've got a bigger and brighter future in front of them if they keep this up, that's for sure.

Rating: 5 Starts off as some really solid, groovy melodeath, but a majority of the album proves lackluster, even for melodeath.

Rating: 8 Top notch, especially for the UK, just have some qualms with the vocals/lyrics and the occasional overstay of guitar solos/riffs.

Rating: 8 Probably the best melodeath I've heard this year, ahead of the Insomnium and MPE releases. It's not perfect but it's awfully good.

Rating: 8 One of few great 2014 Melodeath albums.
