Bezoar - Wyt Deth



Band request from Brooklyn, USA.

Here is their press release:

Bezoar wails and hails from Brooklyn, New York. This power trio has been

on the stoner, psychedelic doom metal scene since 2009 but is more majestic,

massive and cerebral than any mere genre tag. Tyler Villard previously played with Ruksac, a Boston hard core band, and Sara Palmquist played with tripped out noise band Isle of Citadel. When these bands disbanded Bezoar was formed out of Sara

and Tyler’s desire to continue making heavy weird and boundary defying music. They eventually became a power trio with Sara on vocals and bass, Tyler on guitar, and Jesse Smith on drums. With influences ranging from Sleep, YOB, 1349,

Diamanda Galas, Swans, Mayhem, Electric Wizard, Eyehategod, Slayer, and

Darkthrone among many others, Bezoar are not out to color within the lines.

After Jesse left the band for personal reasons Bezoar was on a notorious drummer search which ended when skin pounder Justin Sherrell (who also plays in the band Wizardry) joined up. After signing to No World Order Records in 2010 the band released a 7 inch and fans can expect a beastly full length debut in Winter 2012.

Combining organized chaos and sweaty organic riffing with mystic purpose,

Bezoar is a no nonsense hardworking band who at times have lived on their school bus to support the music they love. They have shared the stage and held their own alongside bands like Harvey Milk, Bison B.C., Jarboe, Saviours, Natur, Total Social Suicide, Sightings, Kurt Vile and other renowned artists and show no sign of slowing down. Like a torch blowing on the faces of all that is candy stripes and happy garage rock, Bezoar powers through the new disco era with a true vision of the ages. Sick,

guttural, beautiful, engaging, raw, powerful, original, and twisted, Bezoar look

forward to a long life of putting out records.


This is a female fronted doom-prog band that trample through

genres as gleefully as my daughter stealing money from me.


Heavy and dense, there is also a strong vein of psych-rock running

through, ensuring that there is always something going on to keep

your attention.


The riffs are strong and muscular with snaking patterns that the guitars

deliver drenched in feedback and distortion, giving the haunted vocals

a platform to sit upon.


Bezoar have enough technical chops to stop this from being "just"

another stoner doom release - in fact if you are after an album that

satisfies your heavy, musical side ...give this a go. I highly recommend this.


Thanks to Tyler for giving me permission post the album - Listen
