4.0 excellentAngelboros | November 17th 15

This record is without exaggeration the strongest symphonic metalcore unit Bleeding Through have ever sounded. Declaration isn't too powerful from a songwriting standpoint, but somebody like me ought to be damned if the album isn't beefy as far as instrumentation and vocal performances go; regarding the latter, frontman Brandan Schieppati's cleans are more tolerable, and the same can be said for those nifty harsh vocals of his. I'd suggest you don't go into BT's fifth studio release expecting some masterpiece, but rather an unrestrained, fun modern metalcore LP which offers a few surprises once in a blue moon. Even if you're not one to talk fondly of Bleeding Through, Declaration's production values alone (handled by none other than Devin Townsend) could quite possibly lure you in. The last two affairs that followed this are so disappointing, and whenever you do decide to start looking into these guys, check either This Is Love, This Is Murderous or this recording. Angel recommends: "Orange County Blonde and Blue," "There Was a Flood," "French Inquisition," "Reborn From Isolation," and "Sister Charlatan".

There's nothing really bad about this album, except the occasional clean breakdown that just doesn't work, but there's also nothing great. At least when Bleeding Through was making aggressive, atmospheric metalcore they had some charm. As a generic deathcore band, they're on par with pretty much every other deathcore band. There are good and heavy riffs and the drumming is intense, but none of it stands out in any way.

Bleeding Through at their best. Marta is WAY more prominent on this CD than any other BT release, in part by the production skill of Devin Townsend. "Declaration," "Sister Charlatan," and "There Was A Flood" are awesome blast-beat infused tracks. If only they continued this trend with their self-titled...
