CRITIC REVIEWS

Distorted Sound

This is 48 minutes of politically minded rabble-rousing and it’s going to plaster smiles across a lot of faces. Expect a riot.

Kerrang!

Bloodywood have a sound like no one else in the world right now. Rakshak is equal parts joyous, furious and incendiary and its creators look set to be the first Indian metal band to truly explode on a global scale.

Metal Hammer

Indian metal sensation Bloodywood mix nu, folk and rap metal on their thrilling debut Rakshak.

75
Blabbermouth.net

Even with the novelty value of their early works erased, BLOODYWOOD still make a wholly unique racket, with the gently otherworldly allure of those samples providing a consistent red line through a surprisingly diverse set of songs.
