Dubbed “deliciously vicious” by MetalSucks, “consistently compelling” by Blabbermouth and “the equivalent of being punched repeatedly in the gut with brass knuckles and then pushed down the mouth of an active volcano” by American Aftermath, the record continues to reap critical hails nationally. Bloodlines is currently streaming in its entirety at the band’s official BandCamp.
