4.0 out of 5 stars top notch screamcore for 2004
the bled have released an excellent debut here,its filled with arrogance and defies belief in some ways that a band this young can release an album as profound and chaotic as this,the songs bounce in all directions and the breakdowns are good and the riffs are strong and the screaming is great,he may well be best screamer this genre has had in a while,its fresh sounding...

4.0 out of 5 stars passtheflask., 17 Jun 2004
This review is from: Pass the Flask (Audio CD)
this is a stunning cd.. start to finish solid tracks all the way through. kicking off with "red wedding" then my personnal favourite "you know who's seatbelt". the lyrics are beautifully poetic, thought provoking and well written. the guitar lines are also very technical with some weird effects that make this cd so diverse from any other metalcore releases today, the unbelivable technical drum parts also play a huge part in this cd. there are also several danceable breakdowns with some brutal vocals over the top. not to mention the melodic side of things like at the end of "sound of sulfur", and a large part through "porcelain hearts and hammers for teeth" ending in a savage breakdown which just goes to show their experimental side too. having seen these guys live too, they are more than certain to hit the big time with an ultimately intense show, and an appearence at the re nound download festival. this is an absolute must have for fans of beecher, november coming fire, the hope conspiracy and converge. peace out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the best album of the past year, 31 Oct 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Pass The Flask (Audio CD)
For anyone who hasn't heard of The Bled before, they are a five piece band from Arizona, US, and have produced an album that is worth every penny spent on it. If you are into bands such as Atreyu, In Flames and Alexisonfire, then this is the album of 2004 for you. Most people will agree that with the increasing capitalism in the record industries, more and more albums are compiled of good and bad songs (the poorer ones being the 'release songs') but this album is an exception. From 'Red Wedding' throught to 'Nothing We Say Leaves This Room', I cannot personally think of one bad riff, intro or breakdown in any of the ten songs. 'Red Wedding' opens the album in fantastic form, with the power of such songs like 'Bleeding Mascara' (Atreyu), and could be considered the best song on the album. However, it's contestable with the other nine songs on the album, each with different influences, with 'I Never Met Another Gemini' having a more Alexisonfire feel to it, and tracks such as 'Porcelain Hearts and Hammers for Teeth' and 'Get Up You Son of a Bitch, Coz Mickey Lves Ya' bringing a more metalcore side to the album. All in all, this album could please most hardcore/metalcore/screamo fans tastes. A track to download? My personal favourite would be 'Sound Of Sulphur' (in which the final riff is arguable the best on the album), but really any track is brilliant. Just make sure you are there to see them in December. They are the next big thing.
