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.
