Iwrestledabearonce announce shift to black metal

Avant-garde metal outfit Iwrestledabearonce have announced that they're changing their musical direction to black metal. They also unveiled a new logo and look. Guitarist Steven Bradley says, "We were sick of getting lumped in with ‘scene’ and ‘whatever-core’ bands, so we decided to embrace our roots and just go straight black metal on the new album. I'd say 90 percent of the new record is straight-up black metal, so we had to change our image to match...Because of course that's just as important, if not more so, than the music.”
