Bleeding Through This is Love, This is Murderous

When did Bleeding Through get to be so metal? This is Love, This is Murderous is an aggressive, haunting mix of hardcore guitar riffs and metal-inspired songwriting. The electronic samples by keyboardist Marta help paint a dark and moody backdrop that is reminiscent of the best of Shadows Fall. So heavy it sounds like it might almost self destruct, Bleeding Through are definitely attempting to stretch the boundaries that confine them in their "metalcore” genre. Playing up images of violence and love, the band is taking the offensive here and stirring up some ferocious yet seductive sounds. "On Wings of Lead” and "City of the Condemned” are two tracks sure to get you uncomfortable in your seat. This record is sure to make both metal and hardcore fans pretty darn happy. (Trustkill)
