Black metal just got gay. Louisiana’s Iwrestledabearonce have shed the skin of the vicious fun-loving and colorfully psychotic extreme metal band and donned the rotting corpse make up and attire like every other black metal band. Also, they have redisigned their logo more akin their new image.
Guitarist Steven Bradley comments: “We were sick of getting lumped in with ‘scene’ and ‘whatever-core’ bands, so we decided to embrace our roots and just go straight black metal on the new album,” says guitarist Steven Bradley. “I’d say 90% of the new record is straight-up black metal, so we had to change our image to match…Because of course that’s just as important, if not more so, than the music.”
New music from Iwrestledabearonce should be out later this year from Century Media.
