Whalezord was born in Silesia region, Poland, in early 2016, originally as a trio. Until the late 2016 few songs were written and then the band had to decide about their direction and pick up a vocalist for the project. More screaming / growling approach was chosen and thus Whalezord started it's life as a real band, writing more and more material.
Remaining loyal to their hard-core and even punk origins, Whalezord members pick passion over anything else, mixing genres and following the path of continuous deconstruction. Deconstruction here is regarded as a tendency to dissect and dissolve parts of songs, adding not obvious influences and staying focused more on the flow than on a form.
Surfacing EP is the first release of Whalezord, containing three different songs to reflect various inspirations and flows. On Surfacing EP you can find three poems, sang and played with an individual flavour, reflecting band's attitude to art, poetry and immerse experience that reading poems whilst listening to music is for its members. All Whalezord's songs are inspired by poetry and contain poems instead of lyrics. Surfacing EP is no different and you can find following poems here:
1. Passing - Wisława Szymborska (Polish poet) - Cat in an empty apartment
2. Shore - Pablo Neruda (Chilean poet) - Here I love you
3. Surfacing, part I - Lewis Caroll (English poet) - Dreamland
- Passing - 04:23 info
- Ashore - 04:34 info
- Surfacing, part I - 05:24
death, metal, extreme, metalcore, melodic, poetry
A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
