Bleeding Utopia - Where The Light Comes To Die Award winner

Bleeding Utopia
Where The Light Comes To Die
by Craig Rider at 19 April 2019, 3:34 PM

Metal maniacs, rejoice! I am proud to present to you: BLEEDING UTOPIA; signed via Black Lion Records, hailing from Swedish grounds - performing Melodic Death Metal, on their 3rd album entitled: “Where The Light Comes To Die” (released March 22nd, 2019).

Since formation in 2003 (as OPERATION SIDEFFECT until 2004)(2004-2009 as DELICIOUS DEFORMED), (and now as BLEEDING UTOPIA) …the band in question have an EP; a Single, and 3 full-length albums in their discography so far. I am introduced to their 3rd album entitled: “Where The Light Comes To Die”. 9 tracks ranging at around 42:39; BLEEDING UTOPIA arrange an intricately designed formula of Melodic Death Metal developments. The hellish; operatic ritual: “Ascendents Of Hate” begins the record, conveying harmomic deadliness – amplifed adrenaline, amalgamated into a barraged frenzy of boistrously bouncy chugs and fiercely composed galloping…bringing crunchy attributes and adroit grit of concretely gnarly flair. Hardened hymns, converged with catchy fluid - polished persistently with relentlessly rhythmic ramifications.

Consisting of David on vocals; the frontman demonstrates consistently complex pipes of profusely robust savagery, guttural growling of raspy vehemence and a vast ultilization of uniquely versatile rushes of wildly sinister shrieking prowess. “Seek Solace In Throes” distributes dominating creativity; captivated diversity, dynamic diligence and efficient dexterity from crafting guitar duo Andreas & Chris – administering blistering riffs and thunderous solos that scream with vengeful variety…viciously showcasing quintessential melodies of progressively primitive technicalities. “Enhance My Wrath” fabricates flamboyantly constructive distinctions of distinguishable finesse; forging frolicking haste, embellishing on experimental evolution and a host of hostile inventivity – detailing immersive juxtapositions of jumpy jams, with explosive firepower and expertise.

Already Dead” implements impressive elements of killer innovations; lacerating rip-roaring nimbleness, rapidly swift virtuosity…pursuited with pummelling pounding from audible bassist Fredrik; injecting infectious dosages of battering adversity - orchestrating onimously rampaging stampedes of stomping thumps, transistioned .with rambunctious remedies which rage with prominent precision. “Welcome To My Pantheon” executes excelling compositions of meticulous manifestations; maliciously providing prestigiously wondrous quakes of melo-death subjugations, reminding me of BLOODSHOT DAWN - instrumentally. Hammering drummer: Adam pounds his mettle with full-throttle speed; fueled with groovy, head-hooking slams with striking roars that rip with remarkable velocity.

Crown Of Horns” examines solid soundscapes with riveting tempos that portray monstrously meaty noise; hints of symphonic terror, and salubrious techniques that submerges skull-smashing jolts of lightning bolt electricity…culminated with an atmosphere of threatening sensations like barbaric anguish and berserk majesty of tormenting stability. “Ruthless Torment” is as described on the tin; remorseless yet turbocharged with volatile, mass-produced results – revolved mayhem supplying organic substance and songwriting memorability that is both original and combustioned with splendid sound production momentum. “Ill And Daunting Perversions” contrasts into a borderline foundation of punchline rawness; melancholy, and a firm fretwork of dimensions in which shine with unprecedented ultimatums.

Overall concluding “Where The Light Comes To Die” with the finale track: “Heralds Of Hate And Defiance”; I am compelled to say that BLEEDING UTOPIA certainly outdone themselves with this one, a sonically seamless outburst of extreme aggression and agonizing abilities …make this one a metal maniacs wet dream come true - worth the time.
