Bleak Flesh - Overcoming Reality (EP 2017) - Bandcamp Stream


Formed in 2004 in Santiago de Chile by Matias Quiroz under a different name. By 2009 the project had evolved to what is Bleak Flesh. Soon after, bassist Enrique Carvajal joined ranks. By 2012, talented drummer Sebastián Vidal had joined the ranks and they had recorded some demos which would later be released on a compilation in 2015 called “A Glimpse from the Past: The Unreleased Demo Collection”. 

In 2013 the band was complete with addition of Nicolas Martinez on guitar and Paulo Carcamo on lead vocals. The band would the release their 2013 debut EP, THE GATEWAY, presenting an interesting mix of genres like technical and melodic death metal with progressive touches and nice synth mixed in. In 2014 Bleak Flesh released their first full length album called TRANSCENDENCE. The album got great reviews from fans and critics alike and I even reviewed it a while back! The CD’s even sold out! 

This EP should be highly anticipated based on the great response Transcendence got, not to mention the brand new vocalist. On January 1st 2016 Radial Velocity came out as the first song recorded with Ngen Kerruff on vocals, being the first single for the new OVERCOMING REALITY EP. On December 19th 2016 they released the second single for the EP, The Spectral Path, along with a sweet music video.

On April 10, 2017, they digitaly released the EP "Overcoming Reality ". Then on April 15 they launched the EP in a release show with  the legend of the Chilean Death Metal band Dethroner.

The EP is receiving many good reviews, there is some of them:

"It makes me proud to hear this EP. These guys are amazing people and musicians, creating truly unique and inspiring Death Metal. Fans of original and slightly experimental sounds with great melody and groove, this band is for you! The vocals are well ranged and have an exciting delivery and great tone. The drums have incredible speed and excellent beats and fantastic groove and feel when called for. The riffs are creative and very intriguing, with tons of stand out bass through this EP! I strongly urge you to give this a listen! I know this band can have a bright future in this genre if they reach the right amount of fans! It would be a dream come true to see these guys live or play with them some day!" - (Rating: 9.5/10 - Badger's Metal Breakdown).

"Overcoming Reality takes the genre by surprise and leaves me with the certainty that it will capture the attention of many other metal terrains. A great achievement for the Chilean scene but the hell, everyone here likes to see it as a community and I know in advance that many will see this as a great launch for Latin American metal in general. And, just add that The Spectral Path the last track officially ends up leaving me waiting for the next material." (Rating: 9.2/10 - Return To My Blood).
