Heat Fetish

Rise 200190

Released on March 9, 2010


Ever since their Fall '07 album was released, the air has become quiet and white noise seemed to abound everywhere...until now. Like the calm before the storm, the void of silence will be consumed with blistering metal soundscapes on The Bled's long awaited album "Heat Fetish". The Arizona desert dwellers return with their fourth studio project, in conjunction to a recently formed alliance with Rise Records. "Heat Fetish" will leave fans of previous Bled records with their jaws on the floor and fists in the air.

Musically, Heat Fetish delivers the staple sound that we’ve come to know and love with The Bled: heavy, downtuned and aggressive songs with screamed vocals, breakdowns and spasmodic rhythms that traverse through various timings. If you turn your nose up at any of the above, then go no further with this band as it isn’t for you. If however, that sounds like your cup of tea, then trust me you will want to put the kettle on and make yourself a huge pot of it.

As ever, I find myself yet again in awe of James Munoz. There are very few vocalists in this genre that can hold a candle to him and each time I feel that he can’t progress any further with his voice, I’m proven wrong once more. One of my biggest gripes with the hardcore genre is the inability of screamed vocalists to emit any range from their vocals. Most screamers have a guttural shout, or a higher pitched yell, that they stick to throughout their songs, making every song sound repetitive and all too familiar. James has an uncanny ability to surprise you with his vocals, moving from low to high, to shout to clean in any given song. This is what makes The Bled’s music a treat to listen to from one album to the next: you just never know what to expect.

The band tried to mix up their heavy elements with a more melodic edge on sophomore album ‘Found in the Flood’ but with very mixed results. Scattered throughout this album are fine examples of how the band have developed this side of their music without compromising on the quality. ‘Meet Me in the Bone Orchard’ is a prime example, where they have successfully integrated face-tearing aggression with haunting melody that helps to make Heat Fetish stand-alone as a complete package.

I’ve grown to appreciate every album The Bled have put out, but I’ve not always felt like they’ve achieved a faultless album since the release of their debut ‘Pass the Flask’. Something has always stood in the way; be it the production, or the missed attempts at being creative. The last couple of albums have been good, but too precise.

Heat Fetish though, is a new lease of life. There is a new line-up, new enthusiasm, new energy and a whole new set of songs I can’t help but get excited about. This is the new Bled and it sounds incredible.
