Bloody Gears "Frozen Rain" 7"
Boston, MA's BLOODY GEARS bring us the long-awaited follow up to their 2010 debut EP, an exclusive 7" single from their forthcoming LP, "Landscapes of Disease", due out in May 2012 on Deranged Records. More atmospheric and brooding than their previous material, the A-Side track "Frozen Rain" finds the band exploring new, yet familiar, territory in the realm of dark and ominous melodic punk. This single version of "Frozen Rain" contains a different mix than the LP version, with added instrumentation. The flip side picks the pace up with two additional non-LP tracks; one of which is brand new and exclusive to this 7", the other a rerecorded version of "Bite the Hand" off of their 2009 demo. Drawing their own sound from punk, post punk, and hardcore, BLOODY GEARS have often been compared to bands like the Wipers, Husker Du, Moving Targets, or Articles of Faith.
