Bleeth: With sound full of angst and virtuosity…..

Bleeth - Harbringer

Miami’s experimental post metal band Bleeth is a well-known secret among South Florida denizens. Their visceral heavy sound is grounded in an aggressively melodious genre-fusing experience. Since their formation in 2014 they have been featured on Miami New Times as part of the essential metal bands to see when visiting.  Bleeth ’s self released 2015 EP, Re-animator, took them touring up and down the East Coast, ultimately catching the attention of Anti-Language Records (LA), who released the bands first full-length album Geomancer on August 3rd, 2018.

Geomancer helped establish Bleeth on a national level, with coverage on Decibel, Revolver, Invisible Oranges, and more. After completing East Coast, Midwest tour and Florida tours., the band returned to the studio to work on their next album. Ryan Haft, an established live sound “go-to” for bands like Torche, Red Fang, Eyehategod, Big Business, OM, and more, recorded and mixed the band’s forthcoming release. The new songs mark “a shift in a new direction”—shorter and faster than past records, with particular emphasis on atypical tunings and arrangements.

Appropriately titled, Harbinger, delves into internal struggles the band had with faith in self, public institutions, moral authority, and the afterlife.  Bleeth  has a growing fear that new technology and crisis would bring our society closer towards authoritarianism. The album title Harbinger is a reference to the omens these internal struggles imply for the future of human society. The track Skin Of Your Teeth,

Bleeth ’s sound is already massive, full of angst and virtuosity. They provide us with yet another example of the true Miami contemporary metal sound: heavy bass, guitar riffs that balance complex melodies with foggy atmosphere, and drums with a Latin groove.

About Ulf Backstrøm (7209 Articles)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
