Black Bleeding are a band from Belgium that has had an album reviewed before in this zine and on this recording plays a raw mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their 2005 demo "The Awakening" which was re-issued as a mcd by Nihilistic Holocaust.
Movie samples start off the demo before going into a heavier direction along with a great amount of brutal blast beats and death metal growls while black metal screams are also added onto the recording a few seconds later and the riffs also bring in a decent amount of dark sounding melodies.
When tremolo picking is utilized it gives the songs more of a raw black metal feeling and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are presented on the recording and the solos also bring in a very raw yet melodic style while also adding in a touch of old school death metal at times and acoustic guitars along with a brief use of synths are added onto the last track which is also very long and epic in length.
On this recording Black Bleeding took a raw style of black metal and mixed it in with a more brutal style of death metal to create a very heavy recording, the production sounds very powerful for being a demo while the lyrics cover death, gore, demonic, and scientific themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Black Bleeding and if you are a fan of black and death metal, you should check out this re-issue. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "One With The Universe" and "Demonic Quantum Boundaries". 8 out of 120.
