Hailing from Scotland, Bleed From Within have returned with a powerful album and sound that’s anything but fractured.  Starting out with the first single, “The End Of All We Know”, the band is here to prove that there is plenty of room left for great metal bands in the modern era. “The End Of All We Know” already has over 3.3 million streams on Spotify and with good reason.  If this song doesn’t get your blood pumping, nothing will.  As we move through the album, it continues its brutal assault on your senses and demands that you pay attention. Songs like “Pathfinder”, “Into Nothing”, “Fall Away” and “Ascend” prove that technical metal and raw powerful vocals can not only co-exist, but make for one hell of a great combination.  Fans of bands like Slipknot, Lamb Of God, and even Hatebreed should lose their minds over how great this album is.  When it comes to a pure Modern Metal sound, not many bands can deliver it at this intense level, but Bleed From Within are absolutely crushing it on this album.  Undoubtedly, “Fracture” will make it onto a lot of critics “Top Ten” lists and rightfully so.  The band’s talent and unbridled intensity, combined with their ability to write great songs makes this one of the best albums of 2020 so far.
