Published Sep 09, 2019Taking an experimental approach to hardcore has led to some of the genre's best acts over the years, and California crew Seizures are no exception. Much like the legendary and influential Dillinger Escape Plan, the band introduce a dizzying sense of genre-jumping, often landing themselves in psychedelic and surf territory without losing any heaviness.
Seizures are preparing for the release of their upcoming album, Reverie of the Revolving Diamond, but before the full record drops we're offering you an early listen to their track "Bedlam Blues."
The song brings a beachy psychedelic approach to the band's raging metal alongside ultra brutal riffing and harsh barks from vocalist Cameron Miller.
"Lyrically, 'Bedlam Blues' was influenced by a near-death experience I had as a kid, along with other similar situations that have happened since then," says Miller. "Always surviving, trying to catch our breath, and fighting to keep our heads above water. Nathan [Najera, guitar] always adding his angular, unrelenting, and melodic offerings to the album. Single-handedly writing and recording the instrumentation."
The album was recorded and mixed by Erol "Rollie" Ulug (Teeth, Graf Orlock) at Bright Lights Studios in Santa Ana, CA, and mastered by Brad Boatright (From Ashes Rise) at Audiosiege Mastering Studio in Portland. The record will also feature guest appearances from Keith Barney (Eighteen Visions, Throwdown) and Vernon Porter (Kenny Loggins, Michael McDonald).
Reverie of the Revolving Diamond arrives October 4 via the band's own Sun Terrace Records with pre-orders available here. Take a listen to "Bedlam Blues" below.
