It’s no new trope to use creative outlets as a coping mechanism – and no one is more honest about it than the brains behind post-hardcore monolith Beartooth, Caleb Shomo. Those who say ‘Don’t get angry, get even’ have clearly never suffered from depression; sometimes the only answer is indulgent fury.

Beartooth may have started as a casual project, but now one of the foremost outfits in metal offer an outlet for listeners to revel in their own misery, with songs as depressing as they are liberating. Below encapsulates inner turmoil like nothing else, with unrelenting riffs that burst eardrums and vocals that tear straight into your soul. Beartooth don’t offer a cure for anything, but Below might just be the treatment to stem the flow you’re looking for.
