The six head bangers hail from Orange County, California. They are a heavy metal band with some mean cookie monster vocals and crunching guitars. The first time I heard of Bleeding Through was via Rob Caggiano’s MySpace page. Rob is a producer and occasionally likes to play guitar with the heavy metal icons Anthrax. Rob produced Bleeding Through’s album, The Truth, in 2006. This was the first opportunity for me to see them live and have it actually work out.

They opened up with the song “The Truth” which starts off with “I don’t give a fuck.” Saying the word fuck always get a crowd going. Bleeding Through had the crowd making a huge circle pit, it was the biggest we witnessed that day. I am pretty sure they made some new fans with their set at Liskfest. I also realized very quickly that these guys and girl were the only metal band on the bill at Liskfest. Someone needs to get them on Rockstar Mayhem’s tour in 2009. I believe they would fit right in.

During their set, Brandan, would jump into the barricade and go for some crowd participation. He’d let them take hold of the microphone and sing. They also played “Love Lost in a Hail of Gunfire” and new song “Tragedy of Empty Streets” and “Orange County Blonde and Blue.”

They were on the bill for Liskfest because a). they know Chris Lisk and b). they are out supporting their new album Declaration that dropped September 30th.. For everybody in Southern California they are holding a Album Release Parties at Soma in San Diego and at Chain Reaction in Anaheim. Check tour dates below.
