Bearwalker is a promising traditional heavy metal band I discovered three months ago through Submithub submissions with their powerful song, When Caught in their Lies, off from their latest album, The Greatest Language, which was released not long ago in 2020. The band is officially making releases since 2019. They have started their careers with a single called; Bearwalker (2019) and continued with their first full-length album, The Greatest Language (2020). Now, please give the song a listen while reading the rest of the article.
Bearwalker is a badass sounding band, offering us nostalgic music with everything we love about traditional metal stuff from the 90s. When you listen to the song carefully, you can hear that it was built in an old school way with old school elements. They have the necessary dynamics, energy level, and the flow in this song, which immediately reminded me of some characteristics from Motorhead, Slayer, and Judas Priest. The song starts with and ends with the maximum dosage of energy, never leaves a chance to its listeners to get bored or lose interest. I was blown away with their vocalist’s voice and his vocal character. This guy is born to sing metal, period! He has the volume, dirtiness, talent, and the necessary tension in his voice to become one of the greatest. And he is making a big difference overall, which was one of the reasons I decided to feature them here on the Metalhead Community.
As I said earlier, Bearwalker is like a band from the 90s, using 2020’s technical/mixing resources. I can easily imagine them playing live at a festival, leaving everybody breathless. When Caught in their Lies is a very successful track, which is more than satisfying when listened to from the record and performed live. This might sound like a small detail to you at first, but believe me, it is one of the main characteristics of every legendary heavy and thrash metal band we call “legends” today.
