Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
Bleak Flesh is a chilean band formed in 2009 after the break of a previous project.
Two years later after many line-up changes and gigs including a support act for Cradle of Filth, the band began to take a new musical direction adding progressive and technical elements to their style.
In 2013 Bleak Flesh releases their debut EP called "THE GATEWAY" presenting four tracks with an interesting mix between metal genres like melodic death, technical death with progressive touches.
In 2014 the band started the recordings of their LP called "TRANSCENDENCE". The album was released on 7/19/2014, twelve tracks for fans of technical, progressive and melodic death metal. "TRANSCENDENCE" is available on Bandcamp, if you wanna get a limited CD copy of our album go to: https://bleakflesh.bandcamp.com/album/transcendence
We're a 5 piece band that uses recorded samples (mainly electronic sounds, symphonic elements and synths) to play live and a click track to make it.
