Bleeding Through has done it again! With this release they have finally perfected the perfect blend of black metal, metal and hardcore or black-metalcore if there ever was a genre, Bleeding Through started it! Brandon’s vocals are much more diverse on this record, with the low grunts, high screeches and some clean vocals here and there. Marta’s keyboards are incorporated more throughout making them more noticable on this record than the previous three. Big muscular riffs and tight rythym section you would expect. My only complaint would be the single note breakdowns. They are pretty rampant on this record, though it doesn’t take away what is truly great about the album. If anybody thought that they would go the softer or more ‘commercial’ sound after the truth, you couldn’t be anymore wrong. Declaration is more darker, faster and heavier and I’m enjoying the hell out of it!
