Blood Sugar Summer are a Doomwave band formed in the summer of 2012 in Northumberland. Their lineup is comprised of Benjó James on vocals and Jack Bateman on guitars. 'Doomwave Vol. 1' is their first release.

The first track, “Combat Barbie,” flowed well the way everything was laid out and I also liked the ambient keyboard. I’m not too big of a fan of the auto tuned vocals, I’m sure it’d be better without although I guess it makes sense if being more on the industrial side. I especially enjoyed the guitars on the next track, “Summer Anthem.” It’s very catchy, the vocals are good, and it’s a really chilled out track. A very nerdy track follows with “Anakin Skywalker Syndrome” and lyrics to go with the topic. The guitars are quite doom influenced on this track the way they are done. The last track “Dancing In Fields” had a great flow, with the ambient keyboards and old school feeling guitars. It was definitely a great way to end this short but nice album.

This is a really great start for Blood Sugar Summer and they have something good going for sure. My only complaint is that the vocals didn’t feel very real with the auto tune and I’m curious as to how Benjó, their vocalist, would sound without it. I personally think he would sound great without it or at least a little lessened so you can actually hear the power of his voice. If you like industrialized metal than this is definitely something you should give a listen.
