John Rowland Twisted, anxiety inducing, and haunting. But also subtly beautiful underneath it all. A perfect metaphor for the human condition.

Dan Curhan This is a captivating and organic expression of the purest form, a diverse masterpiece of extreme music that blends together influences and instrumentation from across the musical spectrum into one cohesive whole. Even in the lightest and most beautiful moments of piano and violin and flute, one can still sense the song's sinister death metal roots. This is the prog I wanted in the world. This is fucking fantastic.

PART I: Gaze upon the fetid rot Weeping wounds of the world forgot Consumed by nothing but scorn For this bile of man reborn Again and again The cycle never breaking Apathy at the source Ever present sores and aching Those who seeketh flame To burn away the throbbing pain Imprisoned in a calloused clasp Never to break free of this grasp Artless lust, sadistic lies Ambrosia wrung from Death Hail atrocity as spectacle Til disease is all that is left Obsession like a raging flood Unquenchable their thirst for blood Children raped in prison cells Cowards' profit crafting Hell Church of Nihilism rise Upon the sinking sands of time Industry Economy Degenerative Mockery Entropy designs the fall Followed dreams design the soul Know thyself, desert the road Hammers chip away the walls Narrow visions - bloody drips the blindness Bowed to fear Callous - abandoners of hope ye fools who Entered here Men will watch and Women wait Salivating at the stinking rotten bait Vain and futile flailing blindly at their fate Scoffing at the ancient signs Defecating on the shrine that gave us life Masturbating with their Bile divine Narrow visions - bloody drips the blindness Bowed to fear Callous - abandoners of hope ye fools who Entered here Goddess grow From the Sun From the Stone PART II: ~Instrumental~ PART III: Sun still burning The Rain - still falls Hearts still yearning Amidst - their crawl Pain still lingering The Sorrow - few can bear Love still blinding Tomorrow - yet so fair

Come out of the blue and lead by talented Alexander Torres, the US entity known as FLESHVESSEL belongs to those few, illuminated contemporary acts that don't fear to experiment with metal music, harmonizing it with other genres and mutating it into something entirely new without compromising its stylistic prerogatives or emotional connotations.
In “Bile of Man Reborn”, the band's debut EP, the dark and slanted death metal of PHLEBOTOMIZED and DEMILICH often gives way to atmospheric parenthesis where a classical instrumentation of whistles, flute, viola, harp and keyboards embroiders rich textures of luminous elegance, celebrating the conciliation of the opposites.

“Bile of Man Reborn” is one single 24-minute long track divided into three chapters, an impressive suite of mutant death metal where furious and scorching riffs, cavernous growls and sledgehammering drums are interwoven to jazz-fusion and progressive melodies. The first part of the track sounds as if FLESHVESSEL had dug up the putrefied cadaver of MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA for one last spiritual voyage of theirs, while the second chapter is a chamber music observation, with sparse notes of piano and wind instruments anticipating the return of devastating death metal guitars, engaged in powerful riffs or searing solos dissolving into delicate freak-folk arpeggios before a final crescendo of poignant beauty.

As in Alexander Torres' own words, FLESHVESSEL's “Bile of Man Reborn” is “an exploration of the human condition and our infliction of duality upon the world. The music is representative of the confusion, suffering, and anger we all see and experience daily, but also the hope that still remains."
