Album Review

By the early 21st century, hardcore metal seemed to have been pushed way past its limit — how many different ways can you scream your head off and have a guitarist stomping around while bashing brutal riffs out of his instrument? Well, one different 'avenue' you can take is by injecting hardcore with a semi-glossy production sheen, which is a fitting description of the third full-length overall by Tucson's the Bled, 2007's Silent Treatment.

Rarely have both underground and mainstream sounds collided as fiercely as they do on Silent Treatment.
