“A really good album …”
(Time For Metal)

3,5 / 5
“… rough edges to really make things stick … never indulgent, but always adventurous, Merz makes a real statement with BLOODRED’s debut.”

“… tremendous … the riffs are powerful and embodied the roots of Black/Death metal in every passage … producing savage brutality with high paced double kicks and aggressive blast beats … a punishing work … fascinates me in its delivery and structure of each riff … strong and relentless attack … make you want to jump into the mosh pit.”

“… frenzied and fierce … like a wildly whipping whirlwind.”
(Valley Of Steel)

“… the record is just awesome! You gotta have it! Well done Ron … very, very well done.”

“… BLOODRED has proven to be a massive surprise — filled with galloping riffs and hefty melodic sections that could easily hold appeal for people who love groups like Amon Amarth.”
(No Clean Singing)

“… one-man project of the special and outstanding class …”
(Sonic Seducer)

“A well-crafted smelting of black metal’s archaic … death metal’s careful exactitude that sounds unprocessed and up to date … exhibits the greatest sentiments of extreme metal as a whole.”
(Auto Erotic Asphyxium)

“… dynamic and energetic … effortlessly changing BLOODRED between mosh-able and expansive heroic moments … a remarkable album …”
(Franconia Metallum)
