Surely, you are familiar with the post-metal genre, with bands like Neurosis or Cult of Luna and you also know how great it can be if done right and, gladly, that’s what we have for you this time and it happens to be from the bloodiest band in the Chicago area.
Bloodiest is one of those bands that combine a whole array of genres like sludge, post rock, and post metal to create something unique and eye-catching and they announced the release of their sophomore self-titled album via Relapse Record this coming January. Why should you care about this band, you may ask? Aside from the fact that they’ve been around for a good 8 years already, the band is formed by seasoned musicians: Bruce Lamont (Corrections House, Yakuza), guitarists Tony Lazzara (ex-Atombombpocketknife) and Eric Chaleff (ex-Sterling), bassist Colin DeKuiper (ex-Russian Circles), drummer Cayce Key ( ex-90 Day Men). and pianist/keyboardist Nandini Khaund.
