Bleeding Utopia are a band from Sweden that plays a very melodic form of blackened death/thrash metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Darkest Potency" which was released by Bleeding Music.
Spoken word samples start off the album before the music goes into more of a heavy and melodic direction musical direction along with blast beats and deep death metal growls and the band also uses a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and after awhile blackened metal screams are added into the music.
The solos and leads the band uses are very melodic and epic sounding, while the riffing incorporates elements of both modern and old school metal and they also add in back up gang shouts at times as well as adding a heavy thrash influence into their musical sound and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording and after being in a very heavy direction for most of the recording the band brings in a small amount of clean playing on a couple of the tracks before going back to a more blackened death metal direction
Bleeding Utopia play a style of blackened death metal throughout the recording that is very heavy and melodic at the same time and they also have a good balance between both modern and old school influences in t heir musical sound, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Bleeding Utopia are a very great sounding heavy and melodic blackened death/thrash metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Your Kingdom Will Fail" "All Life Withers" "Bring Me your Dead" and "Nighttime Divine". 8 out of 10.
