Album Review

Paradigm: an outstandingly clear example or archetype. Entropy: the degree of disorder or uncertainty in a system. Paradigm in Entropy: perfect chaos? Ah, who knows. The sober truth about Bleed the Sky's pompously named debut is that these SoCal natives don't seem to know what they want to be when they grow up. On the one hand, representative tracks like "Minion," "Kill Tank," and "Borrelia Mass," with their down-tuned riffs, processed melodic choruses, and machine-like drum patterns, suggest the group want to emulate Fear Factory by way of Meshuggah; on the other hand, inconsistent cuts like "Skin un Skin" (featuring a great melodic bridge, but nothing else), "The Martyr" (containing an Incubus-like commercial display), and the wince inducing "Leverage" (which sounds like Korn's Jonathan Davis' being molested by Burton C. Bell and company), see them wallowing in the cesspool of nu-metal predictability. And therein lies the crux of Bleed the Sky's dilemma: discerning metalheads will likely dismiss them with barely one listen, while nu-metal fans drawn by the group's musical and visual presentation (which includes all of the right haircuts, piercings, and a mostly inaudible, and probably unnecessary DJ) will think the brief notions of hardcore and death metal contained here are positively revolutionary. Which is to say that this flawed but bold debut could very well slip right through the stylistic cracks separating nu-metal and its apparent early 2000s replacement, the more purist-grounded New Wave of American Heavy Metal. In any case, Bleed the Sky's obvious versatility and commendable experimental nature suggest that they need only compile a little more experience in order to harness their schizophrenic songwriting impulses, but, as it stands, Paradigm in Entropy's description is only half accurate.

Customer Reviews

Why hadn't I found this band earlier?

The first song I ever heard from these guys was Minion and I couldn't believe how prefect it was. If I could only live with five song (even though I would probably die within two minutes) minion would definitely have to be one of them. Enough about that one song though, the whole entire album is amazing. You can't say that about many albums, but you can with this. How is it even possible to be able to scream AND sing that good. And I mean it, the vocals are the best that I've heard, tied with Chimaira (who you probably already know, and if you don't you must!), All shall Perish, Machinemade God, and when Trivium use to scream. If you don't get this after previewing one of these song than something must be wrong with your ears.


i don't usually write reviews on here, but having read itunes' review of this album i had to speak up. this is a phenomenal band. basically a perfect mix of brutality and beauty, with an emphasis on the brutal. i truly hope these guys don't see the main review on their itunes page and decide to make some drastic changes to their sound. i mean, isn't the ultimate goal of the itunes service to sell music? why then have a negative review introducing the band? these guys are incredible. BUY IT.

great album

when i first heard this album i couldnt stop listening everything is perfect for the metal/metalcore world... from the awesome lyrics to the piercing screams to the clean and beautiful vocals of noah robinson its one of the best albums i have ever owned and this cd easily made them my favorite band there isnt a single song that isnt 5 stars even gated the filler musical is awesomely dark and ambient
