Iwrestledabearonce Goes Black Metal?

Iwrestledabearonce known for their unique source of style ranging from a variety of types;  jazz, disco, swing, easy listening, grindcore and electronica, but primarily metalcore have decided to go a whole another direction in the genre department. They have gone black metal! Say what? Here’s a statement from guitarist Steven Bradley regarding the decision to abandon the band’s old sound:

“We were sick of getting lumped in with ‘scene’ and ‘whatever-core’ bands, so we decided to embrace our roots and just go straight black metal on the new album. I’d say 90% of the new record is straight-up black metal, so we had to change our image to match… Because of course that’s just as important, if not more so, than the music.”

Be sure to catch the band out on the road this summer on The Allstars Tour!
