Bleeders - The Bleeders @ The Globe 20 April 2006

24 Apr 2006 // A review by Shade
The Bleeders played @ The Globe in Palmerston North on Thursday the 20th of April 2006 as part of their tour for their new album 'As Sweet As Sin'.

The room darkened and the crowd chanted out their name. Anticipation ran high. This was the band that everyone had been waiting for and it was definitely worth the wait.

Lead by the best person for the job, Angelo, The Bleeders pulled the crowds towards the stage like some sort of gravitational force and they kept everyone's eyes magnitised towards the stage throughout their entire set. You could feel their determination and passion in all of their songs and it is this determination and passion that has turned The Bleeders into what they are today. This is one band that is sure to go far, and not just with NZ music. Their do-it-yourself attitude has already seen them achieve so much, including being signed to a major record label.

In the wings of the stage during The Bleeders set stood members from the previous bands who, like the audience, were completley mesmerised by what they saw. The Bleeders are so talented that their music sends shivers down your spine.

When their A Bleeding Heart EP came out, Punkas.com noted The Bleeders as "bristling with potential". After seeing them perform live it is obvious that they have now realised their potential and they are using it to their advantage.

Best Bleeders song of the night: Out Of Time will always be a favourite of mine and it was awesome to finally see it performed live, however Nightmares was the best Bleeders song of the night.
 

About Bleeders

Formed in 2002, it didn't take long for Auckland based Bleeders to take off. In their debut year they released the legendary hardcore punk NZ classic A Bleeding Heart EP. This was followed by constant sold out shows all over NZ. In 2004 the band was rewarded for their hard work and ever growing fan base by signing a record deal to Universal Music.

2006 was a huge year for the Bleeders. Their debut album, the anthemic power house that is Sweet As Sin, reached 2 in the charts, garnered them Best Breakthough Artist and Best Rock Album at the 2006 New Zealand Music Awards and went on to sell Gold. The band toured like maniacs in NZ and headed across the Tasman no less than five times at the invitation of everyone from Avenged Sevenfold and AFI to Aussie acts Gyroscope and Behind Crimson Eyes.

The self-titled follow up to Sweet As Sin rejects any notion of resting on laurels. Produced by Clint Murphy and the Bleeders at Auckland’s York Street Studios and mastered by Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound in New York, Bleeders was a return to the brutal vitality that first brought them to people’s attention.

Coridian - Single Review: Seed II
21 Oct 2020 // by Shade
There's an implicit line in Rock music between the head-banging craze that makes you want to raid the mosh pit, and the refined preciseness of a subtle yet powerful tune. Very few bands can master both.

Channeled - Single Review: Deeper
06 Aug 2019 // by Shade
Sometimes life gets to the point where we can have trouble standing on our own two feet. The headache-inducing stresses of life can knock the breath right out from our lungs, while we struggle to retain some sense of normality.

Written By Wolves - Single Review: Tell Me What You're Running From?
29 Jul 2019 // by Shade
There's a lot of crazy in this world - it can test you, put you through all sorts of hardship and adversity, and drain all your energy within minutes. It can feel defeating, overwhelming and downright scary, and sometimes we can feel a very real need to run away.
