BraveWords Premier – THE MOUNTAIN MAN Streaming “Open Graves”
March 9, 2016, 4 years ago
Vancouver’s rugged outdoors-metallers, The Mountain Man, deliver a diverse blend of hard-hitting music, paying homage to the Sasquatch through crushing riffs and blaring drums. This band is all Canadian; celebrating camping, plaid, beer, and above all else energetic metal. Parker (ex-Brauheist) gets straight to the point with his raw, gruff vocals and lyrics filled with animosity that cut through the instruments like an unyielding axe. Each song is like a hand-drawn map guiding fans through the British Columbian wilderness. While the first half is complete, the second half is up to the listener to build their own path and take what they will from each track. BraveWords is digging deep with the premier of the new track “Open Graves”. Get rough n’ tumble with The Mountain Man below:
The band developed their sound from listening to groups like The Black Dahlia Murder, Crowbar, Gojira, Lamb Of God, and Black Sabbath, taking to heart the importance of dedicating their lives to their craft. Tevyn Pacey (bass), Ryan McCreedy (drums), Parker (vocals), Tyson Tambellini (rhythm guitar), and Jordan Orr (lead guitar) are like woodsmen secluded from civilization with nothing but their instruments to craft doomy, yet frantic metal. They harness a variety of metal genres and bend them to their will.
The Mountain Man are releasing their debut EP Bloodlust on Friday, March 25th. The five song EP is purposefully open ended so that listeners can interpret each song and find meaning for themselves. Preorder the album on Bandcamp.
