Brandan Schieppati (Bleeding Through) “We Helped Pioneer A Fucking Genre…We’ll Never Be Forgotten About”

Formed in 1999, Bleeding Through have run the gamut of countries, labels, genre stylings and immense, genre-defining releases, influencing several generations of artists since their inception. This crushing Californian metal act seamlessly combine hardcore, symphonic and death metal in a maelstrom of magnificent aggression, weaving melody and mayhem together into a chaotic quilt. Dedicated to their craft in a way that has cast countless acts to shame, Bleeding Through are a band that many fans of extreme music may cite as one of their first truly “heavy” bands—and all these years later, they hold up just as strong, if not more so. While the band has been on a self imposed hiatus since 2104, reuniting in 2016 for a benefit show for The Ghost Inside following the bands horrific accident. As such the heavy metal landscape has changed a lot over the handful of years since the band called it a day. Metalcore has fallen out of favor with the mainstream, and theres been a sort of changing of the guard with “newer” bands like Bring Me The Horizon and A Day to Remember dominating the scene and heading in a more poppier direction. (Written By: Jon Beatty)

This week on Talk Toomey: The Metal Nexus Podcast host Joshua Toomey welcomes Bleeding Through vocalist Brandan Schieppati. Joshua and Brandon talk about the bands new album ‘Love Will Kill All’ which releases via Sharptone Records on 5/25. They also talk about Brandon’s podcast and what happened with it. He talks about how many irons he has in the fire with his band, his gym Rise Above Fitness, and also his clothing line and just doesn’t have the time to host his podcast on a weekly basis. On the band returning to the stage he says “we were never a big band, we’ve never made money”, and they simply reunited because they love playing music. The two also talk about other bands reuniting and about the bands they influenced are now on top of their game. He also talks about their time away from the band and coming back full circle saying “We Helped Pioneer A Fucking Genre…We’ll Never Be Forgotten About”. Brandon also talks about how the band tried to stay old school and wasn’t a “social media band”. You can hear the entire interview below.
