London-born Death Thrash champions The Bleeding are returning in full force to bring you their third full-length album Monokrator!
After forming in 2010, the band released their first EP Death Eternal in 2013 and, after a major line-up change, released their first full-length album Rites of Absolution in 2017. Their second full-length album Morbid Prophecy, released two years later, received critical acclaim from the press:
“The 20 Greatest UK THRASH albums of the last 5 years” (2022)
“A truly blistering sophomore effort that expands upon the ferocity of their previous album in many exciting new directions, further defining their own distinctive and sharp approach.”
– Invisible Oranges
“The Bleeding unleashes sonic oblivion with some of the most violent and virulent riffs you’re ever likely to hear ” (8.5/10)
– Ave Noctum
“This band is a force to be reckoned with. Intense riffs, fierce vocals and punishing drums are all to be found on the latest full-length from The Bleeding.” (8/10) Excellent
– Metal Temple
The band’s resume also boasts a collaboration with none other than the UK Black / Speed Thrash hero himself, James McBain (Hellripper), on the title track from their 2021 EP Rise Into Nothing.
On their latest album, Monokrator, The Bleeding combine thrash elements, comparable to latter-day Exodus/Destruction, with the ferocity of Demolition Hammer and a vocal attack akin to Jeff Walker and Chuck Schuldiner to create a blitzkrieg-like listening experience with a full frontal assault that pulls no punches and will leave your head spinning in delight. Monokrator is a flag-planting statement that will put the UK back on the map when it comes to quality Thrash!
Invisible Oranges recently shared,
“It’s a horror-infused rollercoaster that brims with adrenaline.”

” [Monokrator] offers 30 streamlined minutes of sharp-edged, old-school-worshiping death/thrash, executed with surgical precision.”
