BUZZHERD Release New Single "Menstrualcity"
Pennsylvanian death/sludge metal band BUZZHERD have unleased their new single "Menstrualcity" on all streaming platforms. The song will be released on their upcoming split with fellow sludge band PALE HORSEMAN on October 28, 2022.
The band comments "This is a song about fear of the unknown, and creating monsters from that fear. Menstrual city? Menstrual atrocity? A menstrual themed ode to our favorite police album? Some of our songs have a little deeper meaning than it would seem on the surface. Most of the time it’s dumb stuff that makes us laugh. We will leave it up to you to decide where this song lies."

The brutal Bethlehem, PA, based BUZZHERD and Chicago sludge lords PALE HORSEMAN are preparing to release the new split album celebrating a wealth of fierce, heavy music.
Emerging in the early 2010s with a sludgy/doomy sound, the BUZZHERD have evolved to create a death and sludge hybrid, with a dose of grind. During their career, the outfit have performed with the likes of EYEHATEGOD, TODAY IS THE DAY, HOODED MENACE, and SECRET CUTTER. With six full-length releases under their belts, PALE HORSEMAN have also shared stages with the likes of EYEHATEGOD, CROWBAR, BONGRIPPER and CORONER, and performed at several festivals including Doomed & Stoned Festival, Beard Metal Fest and Full Terror Assault.
Initiating proceedings with an aggressive intensity, BUZZHERD's "PxBxPxTxBx" is fuelled by groove rhythms, thundering percussion and guttural vocals, while "Leave a Little Room for Jesus" delivers driving guitar riffs and fast-moving motifs. The quartet unleash a fury of heavy atrocities across the first half of the album. Deliciously distorted guitar tones carry a razor sharp edge, and the vocal delivery appears to rise from the depths as the bass and drums ground deeper into the earth. Honing a nightmarish atmosphere, BUZZHERD unleash and an unceasing assault on the senses. PALE HORSEMAN emerges out of the gloom with an advancing eerie fuzz inflamed sound through "GRIGORI". Creating a striking mood through dynamic guitars, compelling vocals and ferocious percussion, “Exile” is a poignant exploration of a dark subject, aptly conveyed through the intense instrumentation. PALE HORSEMAN's bonus track "VIMANAS" ventures through a smorgasbord of instrumental and vocal harmonies that produces an immersive effect.
Split combines the sheer anguish from BUZZHERD with the moody experimentation from PALE HORSEMAN. The new album is filled with colossal sounds from both bands as they venture unafraid into the murky depths. Hard-hitting and unforgiving, Split is a powerful offering.
