Where many bands at this stage in their career start talking about melody, accessibility and radio airplay, Bleeding Through resists the trends and walks where many artists fear to tread. Declaration is heavier, darker, angrier, more pissed off, faster and more epic than anything in the bands already impressive catalogue. The followup to The Truth (2006) and This is Love, This is Murderous (2003), which have sold a combined quarter of a million albums worldwide, was produced by Devin Townsend in Vancouver, British Columbia. Declaration is incredibly dense, layered and full of atmosphere, recalling the finest moments of classic death metal, black metal and hardcore. Bleeding Through has always stood for the broken-hearted and betrayed. Declaration expands further upon that idea. Contrary to earlier reports of a conceptually driven album, Bleeding Throughs latest is their most diverse offering thematically, addressing a variety of topics on tracks like There Was a Flood, Germany and Death Anxiety.
