About BEAR MACE
Since forming in 2012, Chicago death metal quintet BEAR MACE has mostly operated in the shadows. Influenced by DEATH, BOLT THROWER, and MASSACRE, the band made their presence known via a demo cassette and infrequent live appearances. Finally, in 2017 the band released a debut full-length, Butchering The Colossus, leading to positive reviews and a recent opening slot for Tampa legends Massacre on their reunion tour. However, work on a follow-up album was delayed by turnover in the band’s ranks. Finally, the wait is over, and BEAR MACE is prepared to unleash their 2nd album Charred Field Of Slaughter upon the world.
While BEAR MACE’s members have kept their identities hidden thus far, the recent lineup changes motivated them to step into the light. Led by vocalist Chris Scearce the band consists of guitarist Mark Sugar (BLACK SITES and drummer Garry Naples (NOVEMBERS DOOM, WITHOUT WAVES) alongside new recruits John Porada (bass, WOLVHAMMER, PULCHRA MORDE) and Tommy Bellino (guitar, ARMOURED ASSAULT).
From the opening battle cry of “Destroyed By Bears” to the anthemic “From The Sky Rains Hell,” BEAR MACE clearly has something to prove. Tracks like “Plague Storm” and “Let Crack The Whip” easily stand alongside the band’s most aggressive material, while the title track is a haunting description of modern war. The massive-sounding mix by Damian Herring (Horrendous) pays homage to the band’s Tampa-based influences, while keeping one foot in the current time and place.
