"Bleed the Dream" (Candlelight; 2007)
Reviewed by Mike SOS
Hailing from Las Vegas, Hemlock capture the city's gritty underbelly with the no-frills savage metal delivery found on the 10-track "Bleed the Dream."
Intertwining hardcore toughness and metal bombast, this group comes off at times as a odd mix of Pro-Pain and Obituary ("Suffocate the Truth"). Keeping it simple and heavy, Hemlock has the wares to keep bodies moving on the floor on cuts like "Pipebomb" and heads flailing on "Nobody Knows."
For some, Hemlock may be too primitive, but if you're in the mood for some fat-free rage, look no further than "Bleed the Dream."

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
