Bleeding Through

Bleeding Through
(Roadrunner Records - 2010)

The band from Orange County is now a sextet and on their 6 releases they always tried to cross borders, to add new elements to their metalcore. They were always pushing the limits. You will still find the typical metalcore sounds, but more often they add elements of black, death and / or traditional metal. On their self-titled album Bleeding Through they show again that they aren't afraid to cross borders and so use elements of different kinds of extreme metal. You can find melodies and symphonic keyboard parts which show reminiscences to Dimmu Borgir and even clean vocals were added. Uncompromisingly fast and with fat down beats they go ahead, switch between death metal parts and black metal sounds - which culminate in some blast beats. Bleeding Through managed to focus on their strong points and they offer a complex album. A well balanced mix of brutal sounds, catchy melodies and memorable riffs they show at this album. You have to listen several time to the 11 songs to discover all the details on this album. Die-hard metalcore fans will probably find this CD too open-minded, but others will discover a very interesting album. The production is fat and powerful, so there is nothing to complain.
