THE BLED ARE BLEEDING HEAT FETISH
The Bled are streaming their entire new album Heat Fetish on their MySpace page and it’s everything I’d hoped it would be. Most importantly it’s fucking heavy, by far the heaviest thing this band has ever done. It’s a lot of other things as well, but you’ll have to check it out for yourself to find out.
This record’s got equal heaping of early Thrice and modern Dillinger Escape Plan, and because The Bled are above just ripping off their heroes there’s plenty of their own flavor on The Heat too. I’m especially digging the tracks that we’re just now hearing for the first time. “Need New Conspirators” and “Shouting Fire in a Crowded Room” are rocking my speakers at the moment, but nearly every song so far’s got something to offer. I can’t wait to get my hands on this record and really learn it. Definitely one of my favorite records so far released in this young year of 2010.
