BLEED FROM WITHIN - "Empire" (2010)

Genre: Deathcore
Label: Rising Records


It's been a while since I listened to some REAL deathcore, but Bleed From Within is here to fill the gap! This Scottish band definitely elevates the game with this record that musically is almost death metal, but has a very good hardcore feel to it (maybe because of the real-life lyrics). This is the type of shit that can create a mad moshpit, rampaging through with 100% intensity, good breaks & beatdowns, fully extreme vocals and relentless double bass drumming!

Aside from the technical but in your face brutality, what really captures your attention on this album is Scott Kennedy's vocals, a very good heavy growl constantly exchanged with screamo insanity! He's good at both to the point you could think it is two different singers (but it's one-duh). Luckily, there is not one single clean vocal melody in this album. This is deathcore after all! To put it boldly, they would fit more on a tour with Suffocation than on a tour with Bleeding Through! Extreme comparison but whatever!

It looks like these guys could really bust anytime soon, they got it going on and judging from their touring schedule they're here to work hard. Let's see what the future will bring...

For fans of: The Black Dahlia Murder, Job For A Cowboy, American Me and all that modern heavy ass shit that's coming out these days!
