bleeding through was one of the most influential metalcore bands coming from the states throughout the first decade of the 21st century. their records "this is love, this is murderous" from 2003 and "the truth" from 2006 were milestones of the genre. they released their final album in 2012 and called it quits after some farewell touring in 2013 and 2014. well, that is not the whole story obviously. reunions are en vougue and so bleeding through are back with a new album that should arrive here in a few days. to get back to the topic, certain parties found it apt to accompany the release of the new album with a re-issue of an old one.
back in 2002 bleeding through released their second full length via indecision records. the late nineties and early 00's have been the most prolific years of this californian based label. bands like throwdown, death by stereo or undertow worked with indecision. in the recent past they focused on re-releasing some classics of their back catalogue. "portrait of the goddess" was a cd only output sixteen years ago now it is finally pressed to vinyl. man, that record sounds fantastic. i listened to my cd years ago and forgot how good it actually is. so much energy pouring from the grooves of this nice clear red vinyl. 500 copies made. indecision records. 2002/2018.
