Dead Hearts [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Eduardo Rivadavia
The first few seconds of Blackhole's debut album, 2009's Dead Hearts, will probably have most listeners pegging them for just another token hardcore band, but once the harsh screaming and full-throttle 90 seconds of opener "Don't Cry" come to a screeching halt, the British quintet -- immediately and rather shockingly -- begins to stretch its sound.
