Blessed By A Broken Heart was formed in 2003 in Montreal (Canada) and one year later their first studio album "All is Fair in Love And War" was released. They were almost unknown at that time and their music on the debut BBaBH disc was a typical and undistinguished metalcore.
But everything changed four years later, after vocalist Tony Gambino joined, when the second album "Pedal To The Metal" was released on Centure Media Records. It attracted a lot of attention because of their uncommon for this style image and music that has evolved into a bizarre and unheard mix of hair-metal and metalcore.
The rest of 2007 was spent touring the USA, Europe, Great Britain, Japan and Australia with such monsters of modern metal-scene as Judas Priest, A Day To Remember, Bring Me The Horizon, Megadeth, Steel Panther and others.
2012 saw the release of the last disc for today - "Feel The Power". Listening to it we can find out that the band has finally departed from the former metalcore influence in favor of dear to heart melodic rock. "The whole band is still obsessed with the ’80s, and that’s bled into our lifestyles. It’s not just when we’re on tour: We still dress like in 80s, we still have mullets. It’s become part of our lives", explains singer Tony Gambino.
"Feel The Power" is full of glam- and hair-metal tracks, that surely would have become hits №1 in the majority of charts in the '80s. Starting from the powerful "Deathwish", continuing with energetic "Shut Up and Rock" and "Night Nightmare", reducing the rate by the middle of lyrical "I've Got You" and increasing it back in "Scream It If You Mean It", "Skate Or Die" and "Innocent Blood", this album will be liked by every lover of stadium rock.
Despite that the first album track was "Deathwish", the first album video was filmed for the song "Forever". We have already written about it in our news earlier.
Two months later BBBH released a new clip for the "Rockin’ All Night" that brings us back in the bright glory days of a hairy glam-metal and makes us nostalgic for that time, even if we were not born yet.
In the video for the "Rockin' All Night" BBBH demonstrate all the cliches we love glam-metal lifestyle for: parties, motorbikes, girls, tattoo, binge, fun and mess. We have seen that for many times, but isn't it what we need to return the things we were missing since 80s to the 21st century?
Seeing art as a weapon that let us to control people's emotions and makes them have certain feelings, the music of BBBH is an almost perfectly constructed top model of a machinegun which attracts attention not only of hair-metal funs but also of modern-music lovers (don’t forget that Blessed By A Broken Heart started with the fashionable metalcore), that gave glam-metal a big crowd of new hardcore fans.
BBBH was created exactly for this. They help us, who hadn’t had an opportunity of living in the good old days of 80th to feel this crazy atmosphere of irrestrainable fun and careless parties, long hair, hot girls and gallons of spray - all that we know today only from Poison's videos and the film Rock Star. That is like a whole epoch that we hadn't live in but a lot of us dream to return to.
And BBBH returns it to us. All the best, see you soon!
