Blood Command: 5 Albums That Helped Shape the Norwegian Noisemongers
Since their songwriting approach is so eclectic, Noisecreep asked Blood Command to send us a list of the five most important bands that helped shape who they are.
“Perfect sound, perfect attack in the guitars. Dennis’ vocals are the perfect blend between desperate and commanding. Artwork, lyrics, beats, riffs: everything we owe to this record!”
White Pony, Deftones (2000)
“This is the most perfect record ever. Because it has everything. The sound is unique for this band and record so it’s hard to copy. The songs a varied so you’ll never get bored. For both two albums we made, we used this record as a guideline when it comes to diversity and tracklisting.”
Yank Crime, Drive Like Jehu (1994)
“This record told us everything we know about pure fucking anxious punk rock. Frenetic guitars, killer rhythms. This record is the shit!”
Danse Macabre, The Faint (2001)
“This record taught us how to let our rock ‘n’ roll dance. At first, when hearing this record I wanted to sell all my guitars and buy synthesizers. Luckily, I didn’t.”
2001, Dr. Dre (1999)
“We don’t know jack about hip-hop ’cause we’re all white middle class suburban losers, but we fucking love this record! Hip-hop for those who can’t understand hip-hop. Everyone can dig this. The lyrics, the beats, the sound, everything on this record is perfect.”
