Album Review

The fourth studio album by Tucson, AZ post-hardcore quintet the Bled is their debut for Rise Records after years on Vagrant, and finds the group introducing three new members — only guitarist Jeremy Ray Talley and vocalist James Muñoz remain from the band's previous records. The new second guitarist, bassist, and drummer fit right in, though, cranking out heavy riffs and punishing the drum kit without mercy. The Bled are relatively unconcerned with melody, edging more toward the metal side of post-hardcore than the alternative/emo side. There are brief bursts of prettiness, as well as guitar breaks/solos that sound like malfunctioning video game consoles on songs like "Smoke Breaks" and "Need New Conspirators," while "Crowbait" and "When Exiting Your Vehicle" feature momentarily diverting production tricks, and a clean chorus or two crops up here and there. But for the most part, Heat Fetish is a 40-minute compilation of breakdowns aimed straight at the mosh pits of middle America, and closes with the closest thing the band has to a ballad, the surprisingly dissonant "Crawling Home."

Customer Reviews

W.T.F

First off, my title for this review refers to the fact that I happen to be the first and ONLY person to review this.
Seriously?

Anywho, The Bled and Alexisonfire are tied for my number one favorite band. They are completely amazing, and so much fun to watch on stage.
I love how the band, despite their numerous changes of band members, have been able to keep a unique sound to all of their albums while making each different and more amazing than the last.
Heat Fetish took me by surprise, and it's one of my favorite cd's of 2010.
Good songs to look for on the album (well, ALL of them, but these especially);
-Devolver
-Smoke Breaks
-Need New Conspirators
-Meet Me In The Bone Orchard (My personal favorite)
-Crowbait

Buy it!

This album is SICK! Ruthless and heavy

Inspired by groups like Refused and the Mars Volta, Tucson-based post-hardcore quintet the Bled burst onto the national scene with their 2005 Vagrant debut, Found in the Flood.
