And I love it more than 90% of people I come in contact with.
Blessthefall's new album 'Hollow Bodies' is officially released tomorrow, August 20th but thanks to Warped Tour and all the awesomeness that Warped Tour and Fearless Records are, I got to preorder my copy of HB at Warped and I got it early.
One day early
To a kid who loves hardcore music and Blessthefall, this is a godsend. I must say, I was skeptical about this album at first. I popped it into my CD player in my room and started listing to it. I'm listing to it right now. It's awesome. Anyways, the first three songs (Exodus, You Wear A Crown But Your No King and Hollow Bodies) kind of left me disappointed, but still want me more. Don't get me wrong, the songs are stellar but when I compared it to some tracks off of their previous record 'Awakening' they were ok.
Then the good stuff kicked in.
Déjà Vu, See You On The Outside and Youngbloods, left me breathless. (Not making an Asking Alexandria reference, unless you want it to be one). The were jam packed with gnarly guitar, the most pissed off, disturbing screams I've heard in a long time, Beau's unmatchable clean vocals and pianos. Yes, pianos. They add so much to this genera. It's so cool.
I love Blessthefall so much. If you can get past the first 3 songs on the album, you will LOVE THIS ALBUM TO DEATH. 'Hollow Bodies' > 'Awakaning' > 'Witness' > 'His Last Walk'
I know this album isn't technically out yet, but I can't wait for album #5. It's gonna rule. Blessthefall definitely wears a crown and definitely are kings.
