The best thing about writing this blog, is that I get to ‘discover’ bands and their music that would otherwise have passed me by completely.
Case in point is IWRESTLEDABEARONCE – a five-piece from Shreveport, Los Angeles. With over 214.000 ‘likes’ on their Facebook page, a Warped Tour under their belts and their second album (‘Ruining It For Everybody’) ready to drop, it definitely seems I’m a bit late for the party! Still – I arrive with bottle in hand….it’s never too late to join in the fun!
Here’s a brief synopsis of the forthcoming album:
The band’s trademark psychotic polyrhythmic groove fuels ‘Ruining It For Everybody.’ Simultaneously, Iwrestledabearonce completely embrace their inner Radiohead, elegantly exorcising eerie emotion via singer Krysta Cameron. She and her bandmates don’t hold anything back either. The band’s spazzy fusion of metal, grindcore, jazz, electronica, and show-tunes has been consolidated into one violently vibrant assault on “Karate Nipples. Elsewhere on “Next Visible Delicious,” glitchy electronics derail into a vaudevillian death metal delirium. Closing track “Button It Up” ventures into raw, real darkness.
I think there will be a few more looking to crash this particular party!
