Album review: Bleed from Within – Era
Share This Article:
At time of writing, the Western heavy music scene is enjoying a massive renaissance of revisionist metalcore. Led by stalwarts including Code Orange, Loathe and Knocked Loose, the late 2010s’ metalcore movement is returning the subgenre to its raucous ‘90s roots, channelling vintage, punky bruisers like Converge while also adding in a dash of unprecedented, nu metal-ish eclecticism. The manic brand of taut yet adventurous anarchy that makes up modern metalcore exists in direct opposition to the style’s standing ten years ago: back then, it was a more commercial, controversial and pop- and emo-inspired form fronted by Bullet for My Valentine, Bring Me the Horizon and Asking Alexandria. As a juggernaut that first came together in 2005, the fiery Scotsmen Bleed from Within are a child of metalcore’s popular heyday, but their new, grooving opus Era creates an uncompromising and hellish aural landscape that transcends the triviality of trends. Instead, it would rather spend its time kicking your head off with raw energy and abrasive muscularity.
