This is Love, This is Murderous
By now, I imagine everyone is at least familiar with this album and I bet most of you have it already. For the uninitiated, This is Love, This is Murderous is the album that sent Bleeding Through to the front of the metalcore pack. This is the record with that staple of the new Headbanger’s Ball, “On Wings of Lead.” It may have inspired some genuinely shitty music, but this is a killer album. Think of it as this decade’s version of Life is Peachy.
This is still my favorite Bleeding Through album but I must confess that I like them all pretty much equally. All of their albums have some critical flaw and this one is no different. Aside from the inappropriate and tacky Boondock Saints samples, Marta didn’t play keyboards on this record. Yes, that’s her in the band pictures but Molly played keyboards on This is Love, This is Murderous. This is indeed unfortunate as Marta is a talented pianist and Molly is not. You be judge. All nonsense aside, this album rules.
