At last we see the fourth studio album of the metalcore (perhaps not metalcore anymore considering the fact that this band only issued one real metalcore album and one album that seemed more of a hardcore album than metalcore) band In This Moment. This band dealt with the lost of 2 band members in the past 1 and halfi-sh years. We all know the difficulties a band has when this occurs. As for In This Moment they were to create a whole new different approach with their music after getting hit hard the past few years. The band says they are "Taking it to the next level with their music".
The next level wasn't what I feel many fans appreciated. The approach of the music was not heading back to early metalcore elements, but to a alternative and electronic pathway.
This wasn't much of an album with much spark and adrenaline. Though performing the songs from the album live sure is a better deal than hearing it on the album.
It combines hard rock with electronic music to create a nice electronic/alternative metal album. This isn't bad but in this case it is a bit annoying to hear Maria's talented voice with electronic music that doesn't fit well with her uplifting vocals and screams.
An average album.
Blood is a step back in the band's career. Much better hearing past albums than this album. It's surely hitting the sales charts well, considering the single "Blood" is heard on the radio bringing more listeners into the band.
Blood isn't all that bad though. Some songs that do keep fans rocking could be "Blood", "Comanche", and "Beast Within".
Overall the album is OK and average. Simple as that..
