There is no mistaking the sound of a great band with the wind in their sails. BLEED FROM WITHIN have been a potent and reliable presence in the UK metal scene for 17 years now, but recent times have seen the Scottish quintet growing in confidence and stature. With their newest album Shrine, they are about to shatter all previous expectations.
Formed in Glasgow in 2005, BLEED FROM WITHIN emerged from the metalcore explosion and swiftly established themselves as one of the UK’s most distinctive bands. With a sound that drew from all manner of extreme subgenres and an unwavering knack for penning anthemic, memorable anthems, the Scots already sounded like the finished article on their debut album Humanity in 2009, but every subsequent album saw them evolve and gain strength. Both Empire (2010) and big label debut Uprising (2013) consolidated their reputation, while extensive touring and an increasingly sophisticated live show proclaimed a noble devotion to taking their music directly to the masses.
