EDITORS’ NOTES

Disgusting is a throwback-style slugfest that yanks metalcore off the dance floor and tosses it back into the mosh pit. Synths and EDM beats need not apply, only crushing breakdowns, lung-scraping vocals, and rousing choruses that demand audience participation. “Beaten in Lips” is 100% forward propulsion, like a locomotive violently jumping the rails. “Relapsing,” meanwhile, can’t even find the rails as singer Caleb Shomo descends into chaotic paranoia. To prove Beartooth also know how to bust a hook-filled anthem, there’s “Keep Your American Dream,” a super-catchy zinger that sticks it to the man.

About Beartooth

Ohio-based metalcore band Beartooth was originally formed by frontman Caleb Shomo as an alternative creative outlet during his time as lead vocalist for Attack Attack! However, Beartooth eventually became the singer's main gig after leaving that band in 2012. With the new project, Shomo created a raw and driving hardcore sound that felt like a true departure from Attack Attack!'s heavily produced electronicore. The band's founding lineup included guitarist Taylor Lumley, bassist Nick Reed, and drummer Brandon Mullins. They signed with Red Bull Records in 2013 and released their debut EP, Sick. Rhythm guitarist Kamron Bradbury (City Lights) joined the fray in 2014, just as Beartooth issued their first LP, Disgusting. Before the follow-up, Reed and Mullins parted ways with the band, replaced by Oshie Bichar and Connor Denis, respectively. In 2016, Beartooth released their sophomore effort, Aggressive, featuring the anthemic title track. It debuted atop the Billboard Alternative chart and at number 25 on the Billboard 200. A year later, an expanded deluxe edition of the album was issued, featuring acoustic and live versions recorded in London and their hometown of Columbus, Ohio. ~ Gregory Heaney & Neil Z. Yeung
