“a rising industrial-flavored metalcore duo in the line of genre-pushing acts” —Revolver
“And when the revolution happens, you can be sure Bloodbather will be right there on the frontline” — Louder Sound
“a stellar example of no-frills, no-filler all-fury metalcore spliced with elements of hardcore, deathcore and industrial atmosphere to give the listener just under 20 minutes of non-stop insanity” —New Transcendence
Broward County, Florida-based metal band and scene disruptors Bloodbather — Kyler Millo [vocals, bass] and Salem Vex [guitar, synths] — are back with a brand new single. The band premiered the video for the new song “We Came and You Were Silent” at Metal Injection. Watch it here or here.
“‘We Came and You Were Silent’ is absolutely my favorite song we’ve done as a band,” says Millo. “Lyrically, this song in particular is meant to be left up to the listeners interpretation.”
The song will be available to stream/purchase here via Rise Records on Friday, October 15.
Formed in 2018, Bloodbather stormed out of the gates of Broward County with the independent EP Pressure. The group steadily built its live reputation by sharing the stage with everyone from Whitechapel to Carnifex to Of Mice & Men, and by appearing at the notable This Is Hardcore festival. The genre-blurring band enjoyed early praise from the tastemakers at Invisible Oranges, who stated that the band “swings their music like a battle-axe into naysayer faces, living up to their namesake with flying crimson colors.” They earned additional acclaim from SVBTERRANEAN, which proclaimed them “one of the newer bands to embrace and reformulate the angst-ridden, chunky metalcore of old, and one of the newer bands to do it right.” Bloodbather signed with Rise Records in 2019 and subsequently hit the studio in Tennessee alongside producer Tate Mercer [Better Off, Chamber, Hampton].
Bloodbather released the Silence EP, which served as their Rise Records debut, in 2020. Since then, the band has been christened an “Artist You Need To Know” by Revolver, which lauded the band’s ability to craft “nasty, gnarly metallic hardcore rendered all the more suffocating by layers of industrial texture” and featured them in a multi-page spread. Accolades followed from Alternative Press, Gear Gods, Kerrang!, Lambgoat, and more. Armed with a take-no-prisoners approach, Bloodbather most certainly appeal to fans of Code Orange, Knocked Loose, and Vein.
