  • 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.

    I give this album 4 stars only because as much as I liked the rather omonius sounding key boards, they could use some refinement, the clean vocals were excellent yet not used enough. Unfortnatly if they used the clean vocals more, more people would say they are ateryu rip offs, when BT came first. And concerning ateryu, they are not metal core (well the curse really wasn’t) and my personal opions about them is that thier clean vocals sound alot of times really gay and the whole goth influence ruins alot of songs with gay lyrics and melodies and that there are lot of more intresting metal bands. And lastly four stars for a few weak songs and the last one I belive it was with the overly exsesive cursing.

    But the lyrics? I can’t tell you how much I can relate to them. I am a dignosed schizophrenic and the doctor told me go see a psycatrist yet he didn’t refill the anti depressant I was on so I got dropped off it, got severly depressed, trying to come to tearms with my new found illness and my girlfriend who I needed more then ever before and I to this day will never need anyone that much ever again, said to me she couldn’t be there for me because of her dream to be in broadway and this play was eatting up all her time. Ya so she let me go crazy, sucidal, and I ended up in the hospital, and did she ever vist me? Never and she came back later to me explaining how it was my fault and she was willing to forgive me!…. That was the first time in my life that I felt like I wanted to kill some one….

    But this is an opion and most opions are worthless if you ask me and nobody should waste their time listening and letting other people make up thier minds for them. If you listen to it and like what you hear, you shouldn’t have to waste your time listening to other people anyhow. Go to trustkill records, there are a few free songs. I only write this as a means of damage control and the fact that I refuse to let people trash perfectly good music.

  • Let me start off by saying I saw bleeding through live in Corona, CA about a year and a half ago. It was definately the best show I had been to up to that point. They turned that place into a bloodbath… literally you should have seen the walls and floor in the bathroom. I mean I was lucky not to be one of the people leaving the pit in an ambulence.
    Their other album porrait of a godess did not leave my car cd player for about 2 months and I still listen to it all the time. If you want the good bleeding through cd get that one. Warning: it will make you want to break everything in sight and set things on fire.
    Of coarse I wanted to be the first one on my block to have the new BT so I bought it the first day it came out and man was I dissapointed. Their are 3-4 very good songs on that album so it is worth hearing. The rest of the songs sounded like they could have been slopped together during a four day weekend. Another thing that sucked is the sound quality was really lacking the drum sound kind of tinny and the bass…did they even use a bass? and those insane breakdowns bleeding through is known for were substandard to say the least.
    Bleeding Through is a very talented band and I am sure once they go back to the drawing board they will be able to put together an album even better than portrait of a godess.

  • This Is Love, This Is Murderous is, in my opinion, Bleeding Through’s best effort to date. It has the best sound, the best lyrics, and best vocals. When I heard this album for the first time about a year or so ago, I couldnt wait for their next. Then when “The Truth” did come out, I was somewhat disappointed. They took a turn in the more generic Metalcore direction. Its more commercial. Sure, its still a decent album, but just not as good as this one. This album doesnt have that. Neither to their other first two.

    Now, this album is not a masterpiece by any means. What this album does lack is the keyboard sounds. Which are a strong point on “The Truth”. I mean, if you have a keyboardist, then use her! Some songs lack inspiration. They just sound the same…I dont know why bands would do that. Its like an over use of the Death Metal blast beat, except with groove guitar riffs being over used. What I do like about this album are the vocals most especially. Branden is a great vocalist, and he really can LEAD the band along. If you want to hear how Metalcore should be played then buy this album. Its a Metalcore classic.

  • 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’sgoin 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 isamong one of the greatest band’s I know of especially in the newbreed of American Heavy Metal speer-headed by bands like Lamb OfGod,Shadow’s Fall,Killswitch Engage,Chimaira,e.t.c these guyshave great chemistry and know what they’re doing with killerriff’s,solo’s,blast beats,insane double bass,and insane vocalsfrom the former eighteen visions guitar player.This band can gotoe to toe with anyone and number 7 the opening riff is like aclone 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 kickall there asses,YEAH THATS HOW GOOD THEY ARE….

  • 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!
