    Blood Moon I is also the heaviest and most impressive expression of Chelsea Wolfe and Ben Chrisholm's music, powered by the incombustible force of Converge and the everlasting spirit of Cave In, and resulting in one of the most impressive collaborations of this kind. Blood Moon I is, truly, an essential album for 2021.

    Bloodmoon: I never feels like a compromise. Rather, it does exactly what a crossover should, excelling in ways that would have been impossible had either party gone it alone.

    It’s a work of complex, unified brilliance that will leave you chomping at the bit for a Bloodmoon: 2.

    A mesmerizing 11-song set that pairs bracing hardcore with expansive symphonic and post-metal.

    A collaboration where each sulphurous element perfectly complements the others. [Jan 2022, p.90]

    Thrills are few and far between amid this hour-long morass. Bloodmoon suffers from two problems that seem as though they should preclude one another: It is thin on fresh ideas and unexpected twists. Its hard rock-meets-hardcore permutations are familiar to anyone who has ever heard, say, Evanescence and Breaking Benjamin.

    A beautiful collaboration. It’s a great album by some of the best musicians out there.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. After 30 years together, the hardcore dynamos hit a nadir. Their collaborative album with Chelsea Wolfe and Stephen Brodsky is exhausting and predictable, a ceaseless barrage of the banal. Expand
