Musically and vocally, there's some serious Ink and Dagger worship happening here, but I suppose it's refreshing since no one really attempts to step into this territory all that often. Thankfully there doesn't seem to be any vampire themed lyrics or aesthetic though. Blood Red is from Pittsburgh and features members of Hounds of Hate, Pissed Jeans and Rambo. I find myself enjoying Blood Red more than any of those bands though.
The music has a good amount of variety, changing things up from fast to slow quite often in a smooth, well executed fashion. The musicianship is creative and doesn't just stick to the bare bones generic hardcore routine. Vocally you'll hear the familiar Ink and Dagger style shout that almost borders on comical at times.
