The internet is a great tool with bands having their own sites, usually with samples of their music. The reason I'm saying this is because with the huge amount of CCM out there, it's useful with bands you may not be familiar with to be able to get a flavour before ordering... The flavour of Inked In Blood is rather old and crusty with an aftertaste of bile. There's just nothing new here. The lyrics seem to have depth but the music and vocals don't - the latter being the obligatory groan of this sort of metal. This is a five-track EP and I have to say I am pretty glad of that mercy. The bio material would have me believe that "Awaking Vesuvius" is a metal masterpiece: fortunately, I read the blurb with a pinch of salt. There's nothing original here, certainly no masterpiece.
