Chicago based heavy metal band Bloodiest has just premiered a punch packing evil droning single “Mezmirize” (which can be listened to below via SoundCloud) which will be on their upcoming sophomore album “Bloodiest” that will be out on January 15th, 2016 via Relapse Records.
“Mezmirize” in a way really does mesmerize you. You can feel yourself moving and swaying to the song’s dark grooves, getting lost in the moment and forgetting who you are briefly. There is a sinister and tension filled presence that permeates the track, making you anticipate what may be coming at you up the road. The riffs grind and the vocals absolutely moan in the most haunting way possible. Noisey goes into further detail, saying:
With its mix of tension-filled riffs, dark romanticism, and menacing ambience, topped off with Bruce’s dynamic vocals, the album’s opening track, “Mesmerize,” is perhaps the perfect jumping-off point into Bloodiest’s darkened world.
This would have been a perfect song to release on Halloween given how delightfully frightening it is. Be that as it may, it is a great way to keep yourself on edge all year round.
