The exclusive song snippet further confirms Shomo’s previous claims that Beartooth’s new album is their “heaviest record yet.”
It’s been two years since Beartooth released their last-full length album Disease. However, Shomo has assured fans that their next album will be their heaviest yet. Back in July, the frontman shared with Blabbermouth just what fans can expect to hear on the forthcoming LP.
“This one is just jacked,” he said. “Everything is amped up to 11. I am so, so pumped. Obviously, this is what you wanna think when you’re making a record, but damn, this is the best one yet. Not even close. This is the heaviest record. This is my best work – the most proud I’ve been of these songs. It’s wild. It’s some heavy-duty shit.”
He also compared their last album Disease to this next album, saying that “if Disease was AC/DC, this record is Black Sabbath.” Although this new batch of songs may offer a different sound, Shomo said that the new LP will include elements fans will be pleased with.
“It’s a lot more influenced in dark stoner rock, heavy power groove,” Caleb said. “Obviously, there’s still a lot of fast [stuff] and some punk rock and all that, but I’ve really been exploring with the stoner-metal side of guitars and guitar tones and doing different tunings and lots of fuzz and chaos and layering the fuck out of my guitar tracks.”
Now, Shomo is giving listeners another taste of Beartooth’s upcoming music. On Monday, he shared a brief clip of an unreleased song. The snippet features dominant drums and guitar along with Shomo’s powerful heavy vocals.
Along with the clip, Shomo also confirms that new Beartooth music is arriving sometime in 2021.
“Do you feel it, it’s rock bottom and you finally have a reason, it’s do or die. I’ll see you when you’re breathing (See you in 2021).”
Back in June, Shomo revealed that mixing for the new album was underway. He also gave fans another taste of their new music with a snippet of heavy guitars and Shomo’s screaming vocals on a new track.
He further told Blabbermouth that Beartooth are making this next record as big and loud as possible.
“The whole point, for me, of this mix and the sonics of this record is as big and loud and fucking sonically devastating as I can possibly get it,” he said. “So on a breakdown, for example, where on Disease it would just be left guitar, right guitar, bass down the middle, this is literally… That little clip I posted [on Instagram] is I think eight guitars, three bass tracks. Just experimenting – just doing dumb stoner shit and just trying my fucking best. Yeah, that’s the goal – is just sonic devastation, for sure.”
