Belgian math metal aficionados BEAR have revealed details for their third full-length album ‘/// ‘ set for release on 7 April 2017 via Basick Records.
The band have unveiled a short teaser for their first single ‘Masks’, which should give viewers a perfectly adequate and mouth-watering sense for the relentless chaos that ‘/// ‘ will bring.
‘///’ is BEAR’s most evocative and vitriolic album to date, comprising of eleven blistering tracks of crushingly heavy rhythms, distorted harmonies and demonic growls. Bearing resemblance to tech metal forerunners Meshuggah and the no-nonsense aggression of The Dillinger Escape Plan, BEAR have a stylistic quality to them and this album is the exact embodiment of that.
Comments guitarist Leander Verheyen Tsjakalov, “This album will burst out of your chest, kill your whole crew and then have tea with your mom on Sunday. It’s still BEAR. It’s still everything you want from us and more. It’s still aggressive as hell but we’ve added some more groove and melody to rest your weary ears once in a while.”
After releasing their last album Noumenon in 2013, the band spent considerable time on the road throughout the UK and Europe, including appearances at UK Tech-Metal Festival, Euroblast and Groezrock.
‘///’ is released on April 7th via Basick Records. Pre orders will be available shortly.
