Blood Music is the second and final studio album by British shoegaze band Chapterhouse.[2][3] Early copies of this album, as well as North American and Japanese editions, include the bonus remix CD Pentamerous Metamorphosis by Global Communication. Cherry Red re-issued the album in 2008, prefaced by songs from the "Mesmerise" and "We Are The Beautiful" CD singles.


The album has a more pronounced electronic sound than its predecessor. Many producers contributed to the album.[4]

Critical reception[edit]

Ira Robbins, in Trouser Press, wrote: "Another tuneful delight in a different kitchen, Blood Music hustles and bustles, putting emphatic rhythms into songs that could have been cut from the first album’s sparkling pop cloth."[5]
