Blood Lust (CD)
In covering for the contemporary underground scene with reference to '70s vintage/doom/stoner rock for the Hellenic Metal Hammer January 2012 issue, long time HMH contributor Vasilis Zaharopoulos wrote in his column (for the record, the column is titled "Sub Terra" and it has separate sections for extreme and "classic" heavy metal as well) that with the advent of the internet, the dissemination of information have now become much more rapid and mysterious than in before, forcing obscure bands to reach their audience, albeit with little means available.

The handful of songs in Blood Lust are dressed with a sound production that can easily serve as a standard for vintage rock. Arrangements and structures from song to song are differentiated enough, so as to maintain the listener's interest and the high record replay value intact.
