As Blood Runs Black is the band to know if you are into melodic and brutal metalcore in 2006. Every single song on this freaking cd destroys.. from the INSANELY fast blast/gravity beats to the bone crunching death of the breakdowns this cd pleases in every way. Every member of the band holds his weight musically. Ernie’s guitar riffs are truly a lesson in stamina, Lech plays some of the cleanest/fastest beats to be found on nearly any modern metalcore record, Nick gives the low end of the album that much desired kick and he does it tactfully using sweeps an the like, and finally Chris has got to be one of the most versatile vocalists out there. From the lowest of growls to the highest of highs, you will want to scream your lungs out and chant along with the lyrics. Please pick this cd up, you WILL NOT regret it.
