Stream the new Bereave EP “Trigger Warning”

I want to Bereave.

Bereave is the best unsigned band in Maryland. We first made this declaration more than a year ago, and damn it all, we’re sticking by it. It brings me a great amount of excitement to bring you this exclusive stream of Trigger Warning, the latest release from these rage-filled Baltimoreans. Jake from Bereave had this to say about the new EP:

Since last year we’ve had a couple line up changes. Some hard stuff happened to all of us. Now we’re back more pissed than ever. Nobody is safe.

After listening to Trigger Warning, I believe him. The EP opens with “263”, a hulking monster of a song that brings to mind the earth-shattering hardcore heaviness of Harm’s Way. This oppressively bleak track features guest vocals from Josh of High Water (PA), and segues seamlessly into “Cornered”. Fans of hopeless sludge will revel in the slow sticky intro that leads to a massive “BLEH” that kicks into a skittish blast of grind, closing with a joyless stomp. “Misery Machine” is a hateful deluge of d-beat and grind that features guest vocals from Kevin of Old Wounds. This brief EP will surely bring a smile to the lips of clinically-depressed Crossed Out and Magrudergrind fans. Get angry.

 

Trigger Warning drops Friday. Stay up to date with Bereave on Facebook and check out their Bandcamp.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            He’s ripping a mean intergalactic fart.

          • Nailed it! He’s winding up for one righteous ass ripping.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Just a brutal, Herculean ass rip. The countryside is fucked!

          • I’m using “herculean” today at work. It’s going to happen.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Do it. Don’t be a pussy.

          • brokensnow

            plot twist- the disc is throwing him while moshing!!!1

          • now THAT would be a helluva Olympic sport

        • Stockhausen

          That’s more like it.

  • When we all left The-Site-That-Must-Not-Be-Named, I missed the exclusive premieres.

  • Hubert

    That guitar tone is a guitar tone that I enjoy hearing.

    • brokensnow

      I hear a bit’a crowbar in dare.

      • Dubs

        I think it’s kind of interesting that most sludge/doom fans I’ve spoken to recently seem to reject Crowbar for some reason.

        • brokensnow

          prolly cuz they pay bills with they muzak.

        • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

          Not me though. Not ever.
          Then again, who the fuck am I?

        • CT-12

          I think it’s because they’re not as gnarly of a sludge band such as an Eyehategod or what have you, so most metal hipsters immediately wanna hop on the “edgy” train and disregard anything different. I dunno man, it’s stupid.

          • Dubs

            Saw them with St. Vitus and Howl. it was a killer show.

          • CT-12

            Saw that same show, and yes, twas fucking awesome.

        • Boss the Ross

          That’s one of the dumbest things I’ve ever heard. Why the hell would you reject one of the greats. Freaking amateurs

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            They’ve been one of my favorite metal bands right from the beginning I started to listen to metal and I don’t see that change anytime soon.

          • Boss the Ross

            You’re damn right.

          • HIJACK… was it you who gifted me a Veilburner on bandcamp?

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Not that I know of. The King ov New York doesn’t do gifts!

          • hrm, okay. well anwyays, i figured it’s a good time to say you’re a cool guy and i’m glad you hang around the Toilet!

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

        • Count_Breznak

          The reason is simple: They don’t have enough fat members to be legit anymore.

  • For those that were concerned about the ALTARAGE vinyl. It’s now avalible through IBP.

  • Dave Vincent’s Perm
  • Waynecro

    Goddamn. Bereave should package Trigger Warning with a baggie of creatine, because the EP will undoubtedly fuel many lifting sessions.

  • Lacertilian

    The intro delay guitar riff sounds pretty similar to Despised Icon’s -‘A Fractured Hand’ intro. Similar note choices and style. Not a bad thing, that’s one of the better DI tracks in my books. https://youtu.be/yhIFUom0Ngw
