Product Description

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.

With "This is Love, This is Murderous", Bleeding Through has proven that they are here to stay. Another awesome album.
Musically, they have gotten much better. While their older albums were awesome, some songs got a little repetitive, and it seemed at times like they were playing the same chaotic stuff over and over. This time, the guitar riffs are much more defined, there are nice break-downs in the song where the mind-numbing brutality slows down for a few seconds, and the singer now does much more than just screaming. Also, the keyboard is much more involved, whereas she barely seemed needed on the last album.
I haven't listened to it enough to say whether or not it is better than their other two albums. At this point I would say no, "Portrait" is just an insane album and I don't think this tops it, but again, I have to listen to this one more.
They've gone just a bit away from the hardcore stuff and have gotten slightly more melodic. To some of you that may be good, to some bad, depending on your taste.
I think Bleeding Through is the best heavy band out there right now, I can't wait to see them on tour with AFI, and I suggest that you all check this album out!

Bleeding Through has already established themselves as a standout band within the Hardcore/Metalcore music scenes. Fans of the band will indeed enjoy the band's newer material, such as "Declaration" and "Bleeding Through" (Self titled album), but the album that garnered the group so much recognition still stands the test of time and remains a classic release from Bleeding Through to this day.

"This is Love, This is Murderous" is a testament to the band as a whole. Prior to the release of this album, Bleeding Through had only done two independently released albums with lower production values than what can be found on "This is Love, This is Murderous".

The album begins with the single, "Love Lost in a Hail of Gunfire", which is a heavy hitting track that begins with a quick sample from the film "The Boondock Saints". It features fast strumming, a few breakdowns, and Brandand's classic vocal style of a harsh scream/yell with higher pitched screams from time to time. It mixes things up towards the end of the track by adding in clean vocals when it gets to the portion that states "My heart belongs to you, so save me" and it fits the sound of the song perfectly.

The album also features often haunting sounding keyboards, provided by newcomer Marta. "This is Love, This is Murderous" was the first album to add Marta as the band's official keyboard player, and she truly adds a new level to the band's style that was absent from the two prior released albums. On "This is Love, This is Murderous" every member of the band stands out. The guitar work provided by Scott and Brian is spot on, with good distortion, nice tempos, and well timed and executed breakdowns.

Bleeding Through may at times appear to be a corny band by image,
they look like a bunch of gothic high-school kids.But I saw a clip of these guys live in a concert going nut's and gettin pit's
goin in some club and new I wanted to hear more.So my freind burn
-ed me a copy of this disc and I can't get enough.This band is
among one of the greatest band's I know of especially in the new
breed of American Heavy Metal speer-headed by bands like Lamb Of
God,Shadow's Fall,Killswitch Engage,Chimaira,e.t.c these guys
have great chemistry and know what they're doing with killer
riff's,solo's,blast beats,insane double bass,and insane vocals
from the former eighteen visions guitar player.This band can go
toe to toe with anyone and number 7 the opening riff is like a
clone of the one on Slayer's classic Raining Blood.Track #'s 1,4
,7,6 are standouts but all are good.Going on tour with Chimaira,
Soilwork,and AS I Lay Dying.I think Bleeding Through will kick
all there asses,YEAH THATS HOW GOOD THEY ARE....

I am reminded why most peoples opions arn't worth listening to. Ok so lets go back to 97 I think it was.. with what was my favorite hardcore album, and that had such a metal vibe I supose you could throw it into to metalcore genre, and that was strifes, in this defiance. This was my all time fav, and as I listen to BT album I can hear alot of strifes influence in thier work, but to say they ripped them off isn't acurate as there again are alot of difrrent influences in this album. To me alot of what was once called newschool hardcore always bored me to tears.. Personaly it was old school NYC hardcore that always intrested me the most. Earth Crisis had such a huge impact on hardcore yet had to be the most boring music I had heard at that time. It wasn't until the last album did I even bother to listen to them. I to this day still don't like hatebreed. The first album was ok, but perseverance suffered the same problems that alot of pure newschool hardcore does as it sounds to me like a chugging contest with random power chords at monotnous speeds. Perseverance was good message but... bored me. I see the problem people have with some of the songs, sounding to similar but even tho they are, to me can still hold my intrest longer than a lot of things. I supose if you really hate metalcore then you should be blaming strife for that. Though at the time it wasn't called metalcore, but I see so much of it in BT music. I have been gone from this scene for 5-6 years, and what marked my return was this album. Funny only to see people trash it. I also love the haunted and respect them highly and I don't see why the haunted would make any postive comments about them for no reason.Read more ›
