"Disgusting" by Beartooth on iTunes

12 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

The release of Beartooth’s debut album, Disgusting, should quiet any doubts about the intentions of bandleader/vocalist Caleb Shomo. Fans of the Columbus, Ohio, wunderkind’s previous group Attack! Attack! delighted in his ability to fuse hardcore and electronica sounds even as some questioned his artistic seriousness. While Beartooth retain the creative agility and intelligence of Shomo’s former band, their overall thrust is in deadly earnest. Bruising tracks like “Beaten in Lips,” "Body Bag,” and “I Have a Problem” churn, gallop, and grind as they capture a soul-deep torment. Disgusting's music is consistently intense yet light on its feet, fusing mania and melody with unusual grace. The hard-slicing riffage of “Relapsing” gives way to bouncy, pop-slanted beats on “One More” before locking into ‘80s-style punk thrash on “Dead.” Shomo manages to emerge from his own private perdition to offer some social commentary on “Keep Your American Dream.” The closing track, “Sick & Disgusting,” offers the album’s most harrowing moment as Shomo rips open his psychic wounds without flinching.

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
