We Deserve Our Failures


supported by

Utterly blistering bone crushing metalized hardcore. In terms of sheer heaviness it can take on any death metal band and then some.

Riffs ooze nothing but ugliness and contempt for melody of any kind.

ESSENTIAL! Favorite track: Century Of Youth.

Niccolo Brown Few extreme metal/hardcore bands are as genuinely transgressive or nihilistic as they believe themselves to be but Bleak is very much the real deal. "We Deserve Our Failures" is a violently aggressive fusillade of sludgecore virulence which rivals Primitive Man's "Scorn" for sheer, unmitigated pitilessness. The riffs alone could bludgeon a diplodocus to death and vocalist Skot doubtless gargles with nitric acid. Savage. Favorite track: Handicapper General.

Dean Roe I had expectations for this release. It far surpassed them. Heavy. Catchy. Annihilating. Love this album and this band. Favorite track: Death By 1000 Cuts.

MrNoddy I used to love things: dew drenched grass on an October morning, the smell of coffee, the sound of laughter, laughter, my family, life, oxygen and this album has sucked all of that out of me.

Now I punch grass right in the face and kick the smell of coffee's arse! This album will change you. It's that good.

Now go suffocate.

    The debut crusher from Syracuse, NY's Bleak. Bear witness to piles of riffs getting jackhammered into your skull over and over again. Everything is loud. Even the quiet parts. If you like any of the following: All Else Failed, Turmoil, Neurosis, Eyehategod, Crowbar, spiteful stuff, and a negative outlook on life in general I suppose this would fit into all of that nicely.
