It came as a surprise to some people, or at least to me when Kung Fu started to go a slightly more metallic direction with their live video series. I really wasn't expecting them put out DVDs featuring the likes of Shadows Fall and Bleeding Through. When I first heard about "This Is Live, This Is Murderous" I was intrigued based solely on the strange situation noted above, but I wasn't exactly dying to hear it either. Bleeding Through is a decent band, and their take on metalcore is at least better than bands like From Autumn To Ashes, but I didn't take more than a passing interest in this.

Until, that is, this thing was basically dropped into my lap, and I mean that literally, because it fell out of the package. In keeping with the other installments of this series, Bleeding Through's disc features clear sound, and quality footage. My only complaint, and it's a small one, is that you can't really hear the crowd shouting the lyrics back at the band, but there's nothing they could've done about that. However, everything else sounds great. None of the instruments drown each other out and the vocals sound extremely clear. In terms of variety, there is a decent mix of older and newer songs on here, perpetual fan pleaser "Rise" is there, as are songs from this is "This is Love, This is Murderous," such as "Number Seven With A Bullet." The band also puts on a strong, energetic performance.

If you're a fan of this band, you're going to want to pick this up. In a lot of cases, sound quality becomes an issue with live videos, but Kung Fu has put out some great sounding stuff in this series, and this one is no exception.

bleeding through is one of the best bands i've ever fucking heard,(i haven't seen the dvd yet)

Brandons impersonation of Phil of Pantera is fucking off the wall funny. DVD is pretty bad ass, but it shows they kinda of suck live when it comes to the vocals and keys. If i scream for 20 days straight, i probably get strained a little bit.

The only reason Kung Fu released a live DVD by Bleeding Through is to make money off the trendy fashioncore losers.

I like The Vandals and all, but fuck Joe Escalante.

I can't keep it to myself. Tales of the suckage must be spread to all in the name of what is right and listenable.

Bleeding Through is the Fukn Shit any one who doesn't like them should fuck off and stop talkning shit. All of you little bitch computer nerds need to fuck off and stop talking shit on the internet. If you don't like the band than just keep it to yourself!

My friend had their disc laying around... Aren't they the band that looks like something from Urban Outfitters: Halloween Catalouge?

when these guys opened for afi in green bay, they passed out free cd's and shirts to 17 year olds who would let band members punch them in the face.

"number 7 with a bullet"
just because you use 2 danzig references in 1 song title doesnt make up for your generic sound/look.
major fakes

Dude, these guys are the biggest fakes eva!

The score is more for the sound quality and the footage than the band itself. The fashion think is obnoxious, but I think it's just an onstage show more than anything else.

4T, I can't believe you like this garbage, these guys personify style over substance so much it kills everything they do.

Boo-urns.

"For almost the whole first song you can't even tell that it's a live show other than actually seeing it on screen. It's like they dubbed the CD track over a live show.

I mean it's great that it sounds so great, but it almost seems like it sounds too."

For the first half of the first song, it is dubbed with the CD. Watch with the band commentary on and they explain why. Something about some kid knocked the input plug out and they got it back in just as the breakdown was starting.

The entire band commentary is awesome and hilarious, by the way.

Like it sounds too good. God damn.
