Blood World is the fourth studio album by Christian metal band Mortification, released in 1994. It was a commercial hit and the band's most successful album.


The album focuses more on thrash metal, with hardcore punk, groove metal, and classic metal influences, and contains less death metal influences than past albums. Instead of the Steve Rowe's growls, the album mainly contains his shouting style singing, but the growls do make occasional appearances.

According to Australian Music Online, "the strange combination of extreme styles began setting Mortification apart from the crowd of same sounding bands and widened the band's audience as they became quickly recognised as innovators and not imitators." Blood World received rave reviews in America and Europe. Horror Infernal Magazine gave the album 13 out of 13 points.
