If you’re not too young, and it’s not too painful, cast your mind back to 2003. The studded belts. The big fringes. The eyeliner. The teen angst. The legions of identikit metalcore bands.

The Bled were a little known band from this period who seemed to unleash this album onto this world with no really thought as to what would happen next. Are they a true anomaly of this period? Probably not.
