It's always interesting to hear about the music that inspired some of the biggest bands in the world to pursue a career in the industry. But it's sometimes even more interesting to hear what they're listening to and what is fueling them right now!
Since they just put out their killer new album, Below, we caught up with Beartooth vocalist Caleb Shomo to find out which 5 songs he's digging right now and why. Check out his list below, no doubt you'll discover some cool new music in the process!
Alpha Wolf - Akudama
"A friend of mine showed me the music video for this track and I was blown away. It's been on my playlist ever since."
Turnstile - Mystery
"Been a big fan of this band since the beginning. What I love about them is their ability to move hardcore in a new, interesting, and artistic direction. Their latest stuff is a great step forward."
Erra - Vanish Canvas
"Erra is a heavy band, but they do a great job of incorporating some more chilled out vibes on their latest record. This song is amazing melodically and rhythmically."
Hot Milk - Candy Coated Lies
"I'm a sucker for a catchy pop song, and this song does it very very well."
Teenage Wrist - Wasting Time
"Grunge pop at its finest - such a catchy chorus."
Beartooth's latest release Below is a pure distillation of rage — weaponizing its deceptively radio-ready bombast to deliver stone cold truth missives, each packed like a bomb with noisy rock chaos.
Below also revels in the darker underbelly of traditional metal, soaked in stoner rock tones and doomy dirge. Beartooth offer no cure. The recovery comes in the process; the journey is the destination. As long as the dueling dichotomy of anguish and cathartic creative expression remain bound together, Beartooth will be here to oversee the show
