Suicide Silence is back with the follow-up to “The Cleansing”. This one’s called “No Time To Bleed” and is just as uninteresting a deathcore release as its predecessor. I don’t get the hype about this genre… it’s death metal with breakdowns played by technically skilled musicians so it should be okay. Yet it always ends up sounding like shit.

The vocals here are laughable, varying from shrieks of the squealed pig variety to cookie monster grunts. Plus the lyrics are incredibly inane… which is probably why these guys do their best to make the vocals as unintelligible as possible. The hyperactive drums and riffage don’t make things any better but at least they provide a cool part here and there.

If you ask me deathcore is a genre invented for all the guys who lust after emo chicks but think the music is too soft. So they jumpstarted this genre which is ultra-heavy and would still allow them to sport skinny jeans and a ridiculous haircut. Everybody wins!
