The (Face Crushing) Truth
on 31 August 2008
I managed to get an adviance copy of Bleeding Through's new full length album and it's the best thing I've heard for a long time. First thing that grabs you is just how much heavier this is than The Truth. It just sounds incredible. Double kicks everywhere, mind melting speed riffs, subtle keys, and even a cheeky solo or two. There are more black metal influences, and slightly more orchestration. These musicians really know how to play. Brandon's vocals are more aggressive with a nice balance of roars and screams, and less clean vocals than ever before.
The album opens up perfectly with a very atmospheric symphonic intro leading into Declaration - one of the most brutal tracks you'll hear. Blast beats a plenty, making you smile and head bang like a loon. There seriously isn't a single bad track here and closer Sister Charlatan suckers you in before thrashing your face clean off!
An essential purchase for lovers of dark, intense music. Hell, an essential purchase for lovers of music. Enjoy.
