In the roughly four years since their inception, this Orange County outfit's musically muscular intimidation, clearly focused purpose and irrepressible drive has allowed Bleeding Through to savagely claw their way up from the hardcore underground and quickly become a force to be reckoned with across several genres. Bleeding Through has arrived to stake their claim as heir to the legacy of the heavy metal forefathers of yore. Just take one listen to the tightly wound, convincingly proficient, brutally pummeling and absolutely devastating sound of "This Is Love, This Is Murderous" and there'll be no need for further convincing. Imagine the heaviness of Meshuggah, the fierce yet melodic sensibilities of In Flames and the undeniable credibility of Hatebreed, and you may begin to formulate some idea of what this band can do. On the strength of this masterpiece, you'll soon see Bleeding Through's dark, Samhain like image, uplifting and engaging stage persona and blackened and New-Wave-of-Swedish-Heavy-Metal-charged devastation attack your town.
