The debut album from Caleb Shomo's Beartooth outfit is out this week through Red Bull Records. But what did we make of it?
No one saw this coming. Not even the promise of last summer's 'Sick' EP suggested Beartooth were capable of anything as accomplished as 'Disgusting'. Former Attack Attack! maverick Caleb Shomo wrote, played and produced everything here as a means of exorcising his demons - depression, an eating disorder and a drinking problem to name just a few - and it makes for a breathless, bile-filled audio belch. Screams are instinctive, not stylised. Lyrics are like bloodstained diary entries. The end result? His career-best work, thus far. Equally emotional and exhilarating, 'Disgusting' is a contender for debut album of the year.
