The music is great. There heavy metal guitars, lightning fast drums, and killer vocals make this band not just a band but a kick ass band! It starts out with '4 words(To Choke Upon)' a song with great vocals, a fast solo, and awesome backing vocals done by Jay, the bassist, and Padge, their lead guitarist. Next is the title track 'Hand Of Blood' which is easily the best song on the album. 'No Control' is the hardest, heaviest, and meanest song on the EP, while 'Curses' is the softest. 'Cries In Vain' and 'Just Another Star' are other favorites, with amazing choruses and awesome guitars.

The lyrics are great, all about different things. 'Hand Of Blood' being about killing his girlfriend, and '4 Words (To Choke Upon)' about bullying and someone commiting suicide because of it. The compliance of the lyrics with the music is simply amazing and it's wonderous how they do it. The singer's skills are great with the perfect tone in every song and loud screams can also be heard.
Overall Impression — 9
It's a great album and compares to many other metal artist well. BFMV is definitely on it's way. The best songs of the EP are '4 Words (To Choke Upon), 'Hand Of Blood', 'Cries In Vain', and 'Just Another Star'. I love the backing vocals, or backing screams. I also love the lightning fast guitars and drums. It is a great EP and I would no doubt buy it again if it were lost.
