To many metalheads, they may just be ‘yet another metalcore band’, but let’s give credit where credit is due. Bleeding Through have always stood out for me, personally, because they’re not ‘just another metalcore band’. Yes, they play hardcore, yes they play metal, but Bleeding Through also incorporate sounds often heard more in other sub-genres to help create a more unique vision in the sea of metalcore. Beyond the two previous genres, Bleeding Through also make use of elements found more commonly in Swedish melodic death metal, symphonic black metal, industrial and thrash metal, to name a few.
So if Bleeding Through are that good and that unique, why aren’t they more widely acclaimed? And why do most metalheads still disregard them as another bland metalcore act? Well it probably comes down to how hit and miss Bleeding Through‘s catalog is. The Devin Townsend produced 2008 album Declaration may have been sublime, but other albums have been more lackluster when digested as a whole.
With that said, Bleeding Through released their new album The Great Fire a couple of months back, so make the jump to find out how the band’s latest effort stacks up.
I’m currently listening to the second track, and you know what that means? It means I didn’t stop listening to the album during the first track.
Bleeding Through are streaming a new song on YouTube, and I’m so nice I posted it above. It’s called Goodbye to Death (whaaat?) and it’s from their new album, The Great Fire, out January 31. Play it, crank the volume up, wait for your ears to start… bleeding while you’re straming. #lamepun
Bleeding Through, a band amazingly not named after the female menstrual cycle (I prefer the male menstrual cycle personally), will apparently finish work on their brand new album, The Great Fire, today. The record is due for release in early 2012.
Bleeding Through‘s last album was pretty damn good despite only selling around 3,700 copies in its first week in the US, so I’m actually quite looking forward to this. It seems the band have improved with age, yet their sales have taken a dive. I guess that could mostly be attributed to changing markets and the industry shifting, blah blah etc. Sucks though, Bleeding Through are more than what their image perpetuates.
Bleeding Through guitarist Dave Nassie will lead an open counseling session for Musicians Institute’s guitar program next Thursday, June 9, from 4-7pm in room MI-201 (does that mean anything to you? Nope, me neither).
I’ve got to be honest though, I have no idea who the Bleeding Through guitarist is, all I know is they have a hot female keyboardist, so excuse me for paying no attention to any of the male members.
The accomplished shredder, who moonlights as a guitar teacher, has been offering lessons to students internationally through the magic of Skype. His brand new YouTube page has accumulated over 50,000 views in less than four days with virtually no promotion through official channels.
People often prejudge Metal as being an “angry” and “monotonous” genre, which is only concerned with noise and aggression. However, I’m going to prove that this isn’t always the case, as the Metal genre also happens to be home to some of the most emotionally mature and beautiful love songs and ballads.
Want to check out a more emotional side to Metal, then get your dose of love after the jump!
So tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, and you know what that means? That’s right, it’s the day I get to watch porn all by myself, all day. Wait… I do that every day.
So ok, Valentine’s day kind of sucks. If you’re single, you get it completely rubbed in your face all day long. If you’re in a relationship, you’re expected to actually pull of some fantastic shit to impress your partner, when actually, you’d rather be down the pub getting drunk with your mates. And then there’s the problems of when you’re in a relationship, but you’re not quite at that stage yet where you know what you to do for Valentine’s day. Do you just do nothing? Send a card? All go all out?
Fuck off, who cares? All I know if I love listening to some fantastic Metal music, regardless of what day it is. So let’s have some slightly Valentine’s day inspired Metal doses today. Don’t worry, you’re not going to get any Linkin Park crap here, I’m still going to be offering some real Metal, it’s just Metal songs about love.
Find out what I mean after the jump. You know you need your Metal dosage.
So this week, I shall be giving you a nice dosage of Hardcore. No, I’m not talking about Hardcore pr0n, although I must admit, do like my fair share of that. Yeah I know what you’re thinking, but I’m no sexist. I love sex and I love women. Hence my taste for pr0n and the image above.
So what Harcore am I talking about? Well the music of course. Not Hardcore Trance (is there anything lamer?), but the genre of music that formed from the emerging Hardcore Punk bands of the 80′s to aggressive Hardcore bands of the 90s, to the Metalcore acts of the 2000s.
It’s a controversial genre, especially in Metal circles, but this week I shall be offering you 5 tracks that not only shaped the Harcore genre, but that are also damn awesome songs.
Get your Hardcore dose after the jump my friends.
Bleeding Through frontman, Brandan Schieppati,was recently interviewed by Sonic Shocks. It’s been a while now since the band’s latest, and self-titled, album came out, but eh, why not bring it up again?
Brandon was asked how he felt about the response to the album, and his response to the question of the album’s response, was the follwoing response:
“I feel like the people that actually got it loved it. I’ve heard very few people criticize it; it’s had the best reviews in the press that we’ve ever had with any other record, and I feel like the kids that buy it really enjoy it. It’s weird, though, because it didn’t really sell very well, but like I said before, we don’t really care about that, about what our record sells. It’s record number six for us. How many people buy six albums by a band?”
