Existing comments about this CD

From: Steve F. Date: May 7, 2001 at 20:36
Certainly one of the better Christian metal albums to hit the scene at the time. It was polished enough that you wouldn't want to caught dead with it, but raw and heavy enough to show off to your friends. As long as you don't mind the extremely-overt Christian message (I don't), you'll like it. (8 out of 10)

From: Sal Date: December 26, 2001 at 18:14
I was a big time fan at the time this CD first came out. I'm still a fan but have realized trough time that the guitars were about the best thing this CD ever offered. I'm no big fan of the drummer, though Les is a true screamer that ranks up there with other 80's singers. Bloodgood was good, though his name was better. I tip my hat to Dave anyday for being the savior on the strings. After he left the band, I left the faithful buying behind and resorted to buying them used when cheep enough

From: Sal continued Date: December 26, 2001 at 18:18
I almost played drums for Bloodgood. I tried out and they liked me and my style. The only reason why I tried out was because Dave left the band. If he had stayed, I wouldn't have felt like I was good enough to play in a band with him at the helm. Dave is worth buying any of the Bloodgood CD's with him on them.

From: dusty Date: January 20, 2003 at 11:35
terrible vocals, good guitarplay, but the should have overdubbed a rhythm guitar in the solo's, cause the whole thing starts sounding very thin when there is a guitar solo. I don't really like Bloodgood. Stryper and Shout are better ccm hard rock bands.

From: M. Allen Date: April 8, 2003 at 17:45
This was one of those releases that set the blood of Christians on fire back in the mid-80s, proving that believers could rock just as hard as their secular counterparts. Les Carlson's voice and David Zaffiro's guitars made for a heavenly combination, the former belting out bold, blatant, evangelistic lyrics while the latter made the strings sizzle, scream, and scorch. Definitely a landmark release in the history of Christian metal.

From: dusty Date: April 25, 2003 at 9:58
it just suxx, check out guardian and stryper for some good sounding ccm hard rock

From: comecon Date: May 10, 2003 at 10:19
to dusty your tastes in music reflect your name. bloodgood used stryper as toilet paper which reflect their name you tampon eater.

From: Dusty Date: May 10, 2003 at 17:02
If Bloodgood used stryper as toilet paper, how come so many people know stryper and so few know bloodgood (just check out how many people commented on stryper and how few on bloodgood), its because bloodgood is shit. Styper isn't the world's greatest hard rock band too, but at least they sounded like a serious band, and not a bunch of guys trying to make some hard rock. But of course u have the right to like bloodgood, but i don't.

From: Date: May 10, 2003 at 17:05
hey comecon, if u want some real hard rock, why not check out Motley Crue or something like that. They are even better than Stryper.

From: boer Piet Date: June 2, 2003 at 14:40
gewoon boute! ..en niet een beetje!!!

From: Blackmore #1 Date: June 15, 2003 at 4:48
If you like 80's heavy metal this album rocks.The last 2 songs are intense and fast.Favorite album by them.

From: Sexy BeAsT Date: July 26, 2003 at 13:18

From: Andrew Date: August 24, 2003 at 20:30
Cool when it first came out, similarly to the Messiah Prophet stuff (am I getting old?!?!). Blacksnake is a classic! Mortification covered this on their first live album. As a bass player, I like the lack of a second guitar on this album. It gives it a more raw and live feel.

From: Dusty Date: October 28, 2003 at 8:41
i'm a bass player as well, but i think the raw and live gets a little too thin here, either a bigger sounding guitar, or a rhythm overdub...

From: Agnar Date: November 24, 2003 at 18:45
I like very much the vocals and almost all the songs included. 7,5/10

From: drakke Date: November 30, 2003 at 1:13
A great band but vocalist is the worst, I ever heard in my life like most of the new bands.. Sounds ok on cd but when heard live very disappointing..just like adema,korn,static x they all suck live............to much effects..... the bloodgood guiterist is awsome.........

From: metalhead1 Date: January 7, 2004 at 15:07
This is a classic group! There are a LOT of bands, past and present, who could learn a lot from these guys musically. They are one of my all time faves, although still not better than Stryper!

From: Jayglam Date: September 23, 2004 at 22:08
My favourite Bloodgood CD, just ahead of Detonation, More Metal than bands Like Styper and Guardian. Great guitars, I really Like the vocals, original sounding. One of my favourite christian cds, best songs Accept the Lamb, Stand in the Light, Awake, Killing the beast to name a few.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: June 21, 2013 at 14:46
This band had its more or less exposure back in the day when they came out but somehow remained "shadowed"...from the 4 musicians here only David Zaffiro had or still has some kind of recognition as a solo artist...about the album,yeah,there are some good effective rocking Melodic Metal songs but nothing really out of the universe...tracks 1,4,5,6,7,9, & 10 could be in anybody's book...80/100
