Blessed By A Broken Heart
All Is Fair In Love and War (Blood & Ink)

By: Mike SOS

Christian metalcore clan Blessed By a Broken Heart aim to replace Atreyu as the 16 year-old female's new pinup kings, yet these Canadians lack the creativity to usurp them. On the band's bland nine track release, the gorged guitars and razor-throated vocals sound like countless other outfit's, and worse yet, when the band decides to go retro in the form of rapping and '80s metal-ing up, it falls flat fast. However, the cover art (a badass skull emblazoned with a twin turret machine gun and two intercrossed guitars) would make quite the conversation piece as a tattoo. Sadly, the album fails to even peak similar interest, although "OMG!" does show sufficient signs of life via a chugging breakdown and guttural vocals that rips into a Bury Your Dead meets Unearth crescendo, but one track does not an album make.
