MOUNTAINEER - Releases Mini Documentary Of Making New Album

Bay Area, CA (USA) based post/doom/shoegaze metal outfit Mountaineer have made a mini documentary about the making of their third full length Bloodletting, which will be released on 22nd May via Lifeforce Records. You can watch the documentary in the player below.

Like its predecessors, the third Mountaineer album Bloodletting is something of a concept album, with all of the songs tied together under one overarching idea. The band comments: "From the moment we started working on the project, we knew we were artistically taking a step in a darker direction. Every conversation about the record always seemed to center on themes of letting go, shedding our skin, and casting off non-physical things weighing us down. As each of us grows older we try to become better versions of ourselves, and in that process we have learned it often becomes necessary to distance ourselves from certain people and places in our pasts. While the meaning of these themes may differ from band member to band member, from the onset our unified intention was to write an album that served as a goodbye letter to those people and things we've had to leave behind."
