Hollow Bodies by Blessthefall (Fearless Records)
After their summer stretch on the Vans Warped Tour, Blessthefall released their very anticipated fourth release with Hollow Bodies. Featuring many fellow artists such as Jake Luhrs from August Burns Red, and Jesse Barnett from Stick To Your Guns, this album will sure be the one that shapes the future of this band. With dual vocals by Beau Bokan and Jared Warth, this record is one for the ages.
With tracks like the very intense Carry On and You Wear A Crown But You’re No King (played all summer on Warped), you are sure to get your headbanging and moshing on. On this album you can also hear a song by the name of Open Water which features Bokan’s wife, Lights. The duet is a very slow but powerful song with lyrics like “Love like a storm, like an ocean, endless Love like a fire, like the world is burning”.
You are sure in for a treat with this album. Featuring vocalist Beau Bokan, bass/vocalist Jared Warth, guitarists Elliott Gruenberg and Eric Lambert, as well a drummer Matt Traynor, this album is sure to be a perfect mix of metal, pop and hardcore.
All in all, I recommend this album to anyone who wants a strong willed heavy album with a message! You can see Blessthefall on tour with August Burns Red, Defeater and Beartooth starting November 1st!
