The intermingling of hardcore and death metal was always embraced by Bleeding Through, and their self-titled sixth instalment offers a version more complete than any of the band’s previous efforts and a more genuine blend of the two genres than recent trend attempts. There are still lung-tearing anthems in ‘Anti-Hero’ and ‘Salvation Never Found’, but mid tempo exploration on ‘Breathing In The Wrath’ and the significantly reinvigorated black metal influence as on ‘Slow Your Roll’ really give appreciable and welcome development. This full length contains all of Bleeding Through’s hardcore malice only now it’s encased with a perfected, extremity-heavy formula.
