The Power Of Sound: We All Bleed

We All Bleed, by Crossfade

Their third album, released in 2011, goes deep, far beyond everything they had previously written.

Sadly, the release seemed to go largely unnoticed and Crossfade has been inactive since then, with the exception of a couple recent solo releases by their frontman Ed Sloan. That is why I share this with you beautiful readers today. A lot of the best music out there isn’t easy to find and I hope to bring some light to art that deserves more recognition.

The older I get, the more I understand their music.

This is for those who find solace not in happy, carefree music, but in music that reflects the darkness we all feel sometimes. In We All Bleed, Crossfade lets go of all filters. They aren’t trying to be anything or fit into any neat boxes. They write what they feel, boldly and unapologetically. The lyrics are even more real, honest, and thoughtful than their previous releases. The music is pure genius, heavy rock/metal with keyboards and samples contributing to a very dark atmosphere. Every layer of sound fits together into perfection.

Every single song on this album is a masterpiece.

It wouldn’t be fair to only pick one song to share. The album as a whole is one piece of music just as each song is one piece of music, and to be fully appreciated, it deserves at least one full listen.
