Bleeding Through - The Truth
The pain, frustration and despair of the preyed upon and forgotten have been fashioned into a sharpened point on Bleeding Through’s new album, ‘The Truth’. “Everything that was melodic before is even more melodic and everything that was heavy is twice as brutal”, proclaims vocalist Brandan Schieppati. This album is a rally, a message, a point of view that encompasses the entire album: the powerless turned powerful.
 
And to judge Brandan Schieppati’s statement about the melodic part, he’s completely right! Everything that was melodic before is way more melodic now, too melodic for me! This really is a big disappointment to me. For some reason these melodic parts screw up a bit of the raw and underground sound that Bleeding Through used to have on their previous album. The melodic parts used on The Truth are just too, well…I’m sorry to say this, but they’re just too emo to me (ouch! Never thought I would say that about Bleeding Through…).
 
Musically this band definitely proves that they have grown to another level. Especially the keyboard parts played by the lovely lady Marta are more present on this album, and I mean present in a positive way. The keyboards create a more mysterious atmosphere, which is definitely necessary to compensate with the melodic vocals. As for the rest of the music, it’s still brutal as fuck, just like we’re used to while listening Bleeding Through. Though, some songs seem to have a kind of catchy thing in them which makes you wanna move around the room, another improvement in the bands qualities! I think it’s just the perfect combination of melodic and dark parts in those songs that does it.
 
Well, something about the cover artwork then. Although I don’t think I’ve got the right to make a judgment on the promotional artwork only, I do have to say that I liked the cover artwork for their last album way better. For some reason, this black and white edition with blood is less attractive to me. It still has a typical Bleeding Through-factor in it though, very horror-ish!
 
All in all I think Bleeding Through has created a reasonable album compared to ‘This is Love, This is Murderous’. The band seem to have grown onto a higher level and I’m still very excited to see these guys live again. If you like ‘This is Love…’ then check out this album and be surprised!
