CD review BURY TOMORROW ‘Cannibal’

COVID-19 or at least Corona-related issues have led to a delayed release date of Bury Tomorrow’s new album ‘Cannibal’. Originally scheduled for early April the date has been moved by three months and now everything is going to be alright. July 3rd is the date, ‘Cannibal’ shows his teeth.

The new album of the five guys is not so much of a bloodthirsty one as it is relentless. Two years after ‘Black Flame’ was another initial ignition for the Melodic Metalcore band, it is the new longplayer, which musically represents a next step forward.

The theme of ‘Cannibal’ is emotional relentless since it has become a very personal album. It’s about some of one’s darkest moments and the confrontation with one’s own mental health, intense topics to process. ‘Quake’ and ‘Better Below’ are two of these songs, being exemplary for the overarching thematic approach..

Musically, Bury Tomorrow don’t disappoint. Hard and brutal on the one hand, but also melodic and almost fragile on the other hand, ‘Cannibal’ offers all the trademarks you can expect from the guys.

The basic mood on ‘Cannibal’ is certainly in strong contrast to the current summertime. It’s not light and color which are the main focus and spirit. Darkness and uncompromising emotional honesty is what makes this longplayer to an emotional contrast to what the eye sees these days. If you’ve got enough sun and want to spend some time on (self-) reflection, you’ve found your soundtrack with ‘Cannibal’.
