Better Left Unsaid Bio:
Determination. Dedication. Drive. Strong words, but none fit better to describe the level of commitment Modesto, CA's Better Left Unsaid apply to their music. Active since 2003, BLU combine influences ranging from the thrash of Testament, the grooves of Pantera and the sheer attack of Machine Head into a modern metal whole that stands tall beside the likes of Threat Signal, Soilwork and Meshuggah.
In 2008, Better Left Unsaid released their national debut, The Fight Within, on Stillborn Records. The album benefitted from critical acclaim as well as coverage on MTV's Headbangers Ball for the video single “Testify”. Sophomore album Only the Dead to Witness followed in 2010, and established the rhythmic pummeling sprinkled with melody that now defines the band's sound.
BLU are entering Sharkbite Studios (Machine Head, Roadrunner United, Exodus) this Spring with engineer/producer Ryan Massey at the dials. The band's highly-anticipated third album is set for release on July 31st, 2012 and will be followed by extensive touring.
Better Left Unsaid have proven themselves to be a workhorse band with a steadfast DIY attitude. Be it through their seven US tours, averaging 150 dates per year since 2008, or onstage alongside the likes of Killswitch Engage, Devildriver, 3 Inches Of Blood, Daath, Mushroomhead, Hed P.E. and Hatebreed, these guys undeniably get things done, and have their sights set even higher for 2012.
