Today, we have the pleasure of featuring the promising alternative sludge rock band, Bearwalker, hailing from Nashville, Tennessee, USA. In this review, we dive into their badass song, "When Caught in Their Lies," exploring its character, style, story, potential, and more.

Bearwalker is a captivating alternative stoner/sludge/grunge rock band that caught my attention three months ago through their powerful submission, "When Caught in Their Lies." This track is taken from their latest album, "The Greatest Language," released in 2020. Officially making releases since 2019, Bearwalker embarked on their musical journey with the single "Bearwalker" in 2019 and followed it up with their first full-length album, "The Greatest Language," in 2020. As you read on, immerse yourself in the song and experience their raw energy.

Bearwalker is a band that exudes a badass sound, delivering nostalgic music reminiscent of the traditional metal and grungy heavy rock of the '90s. Upon close listening, it becomes evident that their song was crafted in an old-school manner, incorporating elements that resonate with Motorhead, Slayer, and Judas Priest. The track begins and ends with an explosion of energy, leaving no room for boredom or waning interest. I was particularly blown away by the vocalist's voice and his distinct vocal character. This singer was born to deliver metal, period! With volume, grit, talent, and the necessary tension in his voice, he has the potential to become one of the greats. His vocal prowess sets Bearwalker apart and solidifies their place on Metalhead Community.

As previously mentioned, Bearwalker captures the essence of '90s rock while utilizing the technical and mixing resources of 2020. It's easy to envision them leaving the crowd breathless at a live festival performance. "When Caught in Their Lies" stands as a remarkably successful track, satisfying both in its recorded form and live rendition. While this may appear as a minor detail at first, it is a defining characteristic shared by every legendary heavy rock band we now consider "legends."

Technically, "When Caught in Their Lies" maintains exceptional standards. For me, it stands as one of the best-sounding grungy sludge rock songs I have encountered recently—undeniably impressive. The overall balance is exceptional, with a clean, clear, natural, atmospheric, and dynamic sound. It's electrifying and masterfully mixed and mastered, resulting in a seamless harmony. Despite being primarily built upon old-school blues rock elements, the song remains refreshingly energetic from start to finish. This accomplishment stems from a combination of the band's energy and the prowess of the producer and mixer.

Considering these aspects, my outlook on Bearwalker is overwhelmingly positive. "When Caught in Their Lies" is just one song from their debut full-length album, marking their second official release. They are still at the early stages of their musical journey, yet their ability to deliver such high standards is highly impressive. It is evident that Bearwalker is heading in the right direction. Their task now is to maintain these standards while continuing to create music. Time will undoubtedly take care of the rest.
