Mutoid Man unveils another new song
from forthcoming album, Bleeder
Check out “1000 Mile Stare”
Mutoid Man have premiered another new track from their Sargent House debut LP Bleeder – listen to “1000 Mile Stare” now on Loudwire or directly via Soundcloud. The band, which boasts a lineup featuring Stephen Brodsky (Cave In) on guitar and vocals, Ben Koller (Converge, All Pigs Must Die) on drums and Nick Cageao on bass, is gearing up for a string of east coast shows with Dillinger Escape Plan starting next week before they release Bleeder on June 30th.
Bleeder is no self-indulgent sonic experiment, no tepid throwaway-track recycling project, no musical 180° into cringe-worthy territory. Instead, Mutoid Man offers up the best of Brodsky and Koller’s respective worlds. Brodsky distills the melodicism and metallurgy of Cave In into a concentrated elixir of frantic fretboard work, big riffs, and undeniable vocal hooks. Koller continues to batter his drums with unmatched force and dexterity. With the recruitment of bassist Nick Cageao and his driving low-end growl, Mutoid Man quickly established themselves as one of the dominant new power trios in the world of heavy music.
Mutoid Man was initially meant to be an exercise in flexing the creative chops outside of the members’ other projects. But if their debut EP Helium Head proved that this musical diversion was serious business, Bleeder confirms that Mutoid Man are an imposing force regardless of their pedigree. Written in concentrated flurries between their other musical duties, Bleeder exudes the short bursts of manic energy that typified their creative process. There is no time to sit and ponder the bigger picture, no reason to search for subtlety—once the album launches into the first riff of “Bridgeburner”, there is no surrender, no apologies, and no relenting until the final crash and chug of the closing title track. Clocking in at just under half-an-hour, Bleeder seizes upon the same concentrated ferocity of classics like Reign In Blood. And with songs as good as these, Bleeder is sure to become a classic in its own right.

3. Sweet Ivy
