-Opera I- “Por eones imperios Drenan nutrientes… Do quiera Cuales Kraken Asfixian hunden y condenan” “From a colony to Elysium” -Transcendental voice- “Empires from all ages,
 deploy their tentacles through space swigging all, everywhere,
 to keep well Scylla’s health!” -Verse 1- Biggest worms spread parasites into every state
 Their mouths full of teeth are made to suck and sow… Their emptiness! -Verse 2- The tip of their tentacles are called colonies! A curse hard to extirpate
 An infectious disease destined to colonize Minds! -Transcendental growl I- “The screams of the colonies Must be suffocated
 As the most injurious cancer” -Verse 3- The disease that they spread
 it’s to survive... Man against man... In an artificial fight
 That you must live
 until you die... -Verse 4- Lack of hope, lack of joy! 
Lack of future!
 This virus colonizes families
 Lack of cleverness, lack of originality This fungus colonizes
 societies!
 Lack of vision, lack of chaos
 These bacteria drains country’s souls! -Opera II- “Por eones imperios Asfixian hunden y condenan” -Transcendental growl II- “Every remain of your own culture Must be replaced With Elysium’s approved meaning!" -Closure - Hear the scream!
 From a colony to Elysium! We are rodents
 that tumbled dinosaurs We are termites devouring the main beam We are the barbarians that conquered Rome!
2.
-Intro- We become in
 eyeless, bodiless maggots crawling through mud
 For years! -Verse 1- Western civilization concept of reality stands in the far horizon!
 as a Babel tower with mud foundations And its shadow, large as a dogma, Give birth to... -Chorus - ... A DAIMON, with a venomous knife Sharpened enough to cut you in half! -Verse 2- To cut your arms, to cut your senses, To extract from the face of the future slaves Every sign of an eyeball!
 To separate your thoughts from the flesh This is a deft skinner DAIMON! -Chorus- … With a venomous knife! Sharpened enough…
 Sharpened enough
to cut you in half! -Trascendental- “We become in eyeless bodiless slaves” -Climax- Gash empire strikes my being A tyranny for mind, a grief for body Slash, the enemy, with its invisible forces A monster with one thousand arms! That makes us to seek bodiless! That makes us to seek blind! -Clean- “To flex our knees,
 To throw us over the soil To make us the most repulsive maggots” … A DAIMON, with a venomous knife! Sharpened enough
to cut you in half. We become in! -Verse 3- Crawling creatures deformed by a promised trans world A place of all delights, an Elysium,
 A vow of absolute! A lie… From a DAIMON! -Chorus- …With a venomous knife! Sharpened enough to cut you in half!

-Verse 1- Prophets, old wise men, vox populi, blatherers
 Have forecasted a storm over civilization! -Verse 2- Mayhem winds!
 Chaotic thunders!
 Will release Armageddon upon this place! A lightning ignites my cigar like a torch While I climb the bald mountain And lay over some stone to see
 This spectacle in ecstasy -Chorus- Vortex rapture!
 An entire galaxy crushes my brain Vortex rapture! Oceans... all! Converge into my eyes! Hunab ku! -Clean- Tons of pressure the wind unleashes! Hundred drops like an army of water! Lightings create a storm over the forest! Dust flies over the stable core of chaos! -Verse 3- Prophets, old wise men, vox populi, blatherers
 Have forecasted a storm over civilization! While! I climb the bald mountain And Iay over some stone to see
 This spectacle in ecstasy Vortex rapture!
 An entire galaxy crushes my brain Vortex rapture! Oceans... all! Converge into my eyes!
4.
-Transcendental I- “The shape of emptiness Was revealed to me” -Verse 1- Its spiral wings seem known to me!
 Its dark core freezes the air between my open arms! But that silhouette is a lie! -Transcendental II- “A wretched version of a galaxy A reflected shadow
 from an unknown dimension Deep in the earth” -Verse 2- This face was shown to me By the emptiness. A dark vortex… Motionless,
two-dimensional Unshaped, soulless, buried! -Chorus- Guardian of matter,
 owner of mass and gravity Define the three boundaries of reality -Trascendental III- “But the one and only soul of this shapeless void
 Are earthquakes, bigger than the earth, all!” -Verse 3- Like an unending horn of plenty,
 Their secrets bright with an earthquake In an unstopping flow
 of gold and precious stones -Pre-closure- The one and only soul of the shapeless void
 Are earthquakes, bigger than the earth, all Salvation for them it’s made By pure and endless change! -Closure- Guardian of matter,
 owner of mass and gravity Define the three boundaries of reality And then erase it all And again, and again Become full of change!
5.
Organized melodies of chaos, generate waves!
 From your tremulous throne in a Black hole! -Verse 1- You, maker of vortices, impeller of galaxies
Kick the stars with your voice! -Pre-chorus- The lonely entity that blows nebulae from its mouth Creates and destroys for the pleasure of sound! -Chorus- Put a billow in our cochleae!
 ... And save us from silence! “Life without music would be an error!” Strike our tympanum with a hammer! And save us from silence! -Transition- Perturb the gravity, give ecstasy to mankind’s cochleae! -Verse 2- You, the only one who can hear
 with your nonexistent black hole eyes give us the capacity to scream! -Verse 3- Give us the ability to hear, To dig deep Into the noise in our ears Seeking your unintelligible message -Verse 4- Tide and matter of all what exists conceive mistakes and autopoietic oddities -Pre-chorus- The lonely entity that blows nebulae from its mouth Creates and destroys for the pleasure of sound! -Closure- Strike our tympanum with a hammer! “Life without music would be an error!” And save us! Allows us to avoid
 The screw of emptiness in our ears! “Life without music would be an error!” ... And save us from silence!

-Verse 1- Shall not bite the ground! Shall not touch the filthy dust, Time is short, It endures one life! Fortune wheel is a weak whistle in my ears! The curse of sight is a prison, a ten inch border to the abyss! -Chorus- Seven meters above the ground To see through breath beyond the space Seven meters above the ground! To use the air as an Aleph! -Verse 2- The only exit is to float away Unconscious, pointless, endless! Shall not embrace the arms That pushes you back to the soil You will lose your knowledge Your gift, you will bleed from your eyes! -Chorus- Seven meters above the ground To see through breath Beyond the space Seven meters above the ground! To use the air as an aleph! “Thousand eyes from all lands and times converge in my brain!” -Verse 3- Shall cut every feather in your back, as a plague, Those wings are poisoned; they say… SO! The only law is to rise Over every labyrinth, Is the only way to see, Is the curse of sight way! -Ending- I can’t stop to see! I can’t stop to know! I can’t stop to float in space! Is this curse useless? Thousand eyes from all lands and times converge in my brain!

Avizor 02:31
Alerta al atisbo avizor, ¡despierto! De adentro el atisbo avizor, ¡de adentro! El vientre dilata sus pupilas La retina late complacida La neurona extiende sus pestañas El oído despliega sus alas La luz, desde dentro Tu córnea acuchilla, Y ni un milímetro, tus párpados, se han movido
9.
-Verse 1- In the most vicious mind, Large as the whole universe
 Galaxies and quasars
 Explode and implode Firing dark energy in a cosmic synapse! -Verse 2- A chemical reaction through dark matter axons
 Transmits vague clusters of mass And in an unmentionable phenomenon! Join the pieces of the most infamous thought -Transcendental reflection I- “Choosing an irrelevant carbon molecule” -Verse 3- A malicious idea, existing for a minimal fragment of time Emerge life First error in the perfect mayhem! -Transcendental reflection II- “Covering it with water and air” -Verse 4- And then this vicious mind, Farming the baleful entity, Give born to perfection
 In some primate’s heart Second error in the
 perfect mayhem! -Chorus- Unique
 cosmic 
inaccuracy
 An error in the perfect chaos! Perfection, the chaos of all chaos Humankind, the chaos of perfection! -Closure- We need perfection! A stake in the wheel of time The mountain and the rock of Sisyphus The big mistake of the universe, The birth of all good and evil! -Voice-over (explosions)- Perfection, the biggest cosmic error! We need perfection… We need perfection…

about

Nine track Technical Death Metal Journey with Symphonic, Neoclassical and Progressive influences, a tribute to a primitive and maybe divine creature with forgotten name that encourage our minds to have the unstoppable desire to create music. A force of nature that has been silenced throughout history. Featuring Marco Pitruzzella on Drums.

Bleak Flesh- And Save is from Silence (Progressive Technical Symphonic Death Metal)

REVIEWS:

“Antes de finalizar, debo confesar que le tenía una fe tremenda a este trabajo cuando leí una nota publicada en este humilde sitio, en la cual nos adelantaban que en este disco iba a mostrar "una propuesta sonora fuertemente influenciada por el Metal Neoclásico con elementos Progresivos y Sinfónicos”. Afortunadamente para mi, esas palabras se hicieron más que concisas y nos regaló una de las mejores producciones del año 2019, que ya se va.”
www.thepichangas.com/cdreview/bleak-flesh-and-save-us-from-silence

"Tras dos años, Bleak Flesh vuelve a la carga con un nuevo trabajo, titulado “…And Save Us From Silence”, con el recuerdo latente de su anterior obra, pero esta vez trascendiendo más allá incluso de sus propias raíces e influencia.
Si la banda ya se hacía difícil de clasificar entre caer en categorizaciones de si un
Death Metal Técnico, Sinfónico, Melódico, sea la etiqueta que prefiera el oyente, ahora tomaron muchos más riesgos y experimentaciones. Su música está viva, es orgánica, pero lo mejor de todo, es que asemeja a entrar en una dinámica de descubrimiento infinito, tanto con lo exterior como lo interior, tan real como surreal, notando que no es sólo un propósito de componer para un estilo de música, si no que esta nace de manera honesta ante una necesidad de expresar tanto lo que es y más.

Recoge tantas influencias variadas, desde Stratovarius y Symphony X, hasta Death y Obscura, como también de compositores desde Mozart a John Williams, y música folclórica. Y para qué decir de la parte lírica, inspirada tanto en literatura como en cine, de géneros como el Horror y la Ciencia Ficción. Aún con todo, Bleak Flesh entrega en su forma de ser algo muy único y propio de sí mismos."
www.instagram.com/p/B551DayJ4AM

"Hearing this album for the first time just put my jaw to the floor in utter amazement. The songwriting and musicianship on this album is as mindblowing as it gets. While it has been 5 years since the band's first LP, the band has gotten stronger and stronger. Also getting the magnificent and blast beat extraordinaire, Marco Pitruzzella on drums is the icing on powerhouse of a cake. If you really need an explanation of this band; Imagine a Chilean version of Fleshgod Apocalypse with more synths and you are getting closer to what this band is all about. One of the more underground bands on my top 30 but you really need to go check this out, pronto!"
www.thatdrummerguy.com/written-material/that-drummer-guys-top-100-albums-of-2019-part-v-40-21

"Technical/progressive death metal from Chile with neoclassical and symphonic elements. This is so incredible stuff, WHAT AN ALBUM! Tasty riffs, nice neoclassical moments here and there and memorable songs. This is next level stuff indeed, one of my favorite techdeath releases of 2019, no doubt about that."
www.instagram.com/p/B5YftoygMVU/

"Este disco es un muy buen lanzamiento porque hay un promedio que se supera, hay cuidado y preocupación en que el sonido sea de calidad y porque, además, te asegura que tras un par de escuchas se descubrirán todas las influencias que han marcado el devenir del metal chileno, desde sus primeros pasos en los años ’80."
www.nacionrock.com/bleak-flesh-and-save-us-from-silence-2019/

"... And Save Us From Silence is an absolute victory, and a slap to all those bands that wanted to copy what Necrophagist did at their time, which saturated technical death metal in such a way, that they turned it into a cliché in the extreme metal. " colectivoexpectador.wordpress.com/2019/09/04/discos-31-07-06-08-clairo-follakzoid-mabel-volbeat-ty-segall-russian-circles-y-mas/

"In this blistering 42 minutes, Bleak Flesh shows the world that they are not to be ignored. Melodic and well composed, this album grips you with virtuosity and revels in its own technicality without getting unreasonably dense, a pitfall for others in the genre."
www.instagram.com/p/B1ZrBceghM4/

"Though I really love the album that came before it a lot, the new one is just better in every way, much like previous releases, very technical, the bass is amazing and the drumming is just so damn awesome along with the vocals (which there is some singing in it but it works so well). If you like tech death, melodic death and symphonic metal, check out this fucking amazing band!"
www.instagram.com/p/B07FO-0gXN1/

“The album has a lot to unpack. Even though I hardly enjoy neoclassical metal, the musicianship is a major highlight here, showing compositional strength beyond progressive death metal norms, plus Lord Marco blasting the skins at max speed always helps. If you dig layer upon layer of atmosphere, harpsichord keys and harmonized guitar leads, then this will suit you well.”
www.instagram.com/p/B1Z8RdgpLCy/

"En ese sentido los nacionales no tienen pero ningún milímetro que envidiar a cualquier conjunto del primer orden internacional pues lo acá entregado es francamente apabullante. Un disco enorme si de apreciar las virtudes técnicas de sus músicos se trata ejecutando escalas que prácticamente desalentarían a cualquier aprendiz de guitarrista, mientras que en batería el despliegue de Pitruzzella es un vendaval de blast beats tras otro, cada uno tan o más intrincado que el que le precede." mundorockheavy.blogspot.com/2019/08/bleak-flesh-and-save-us-from-silence.html

“Bleak Flesh have crafted a track that not only has the intensity and speed of the best of the best tech-death bands but also taps into some more melodic and progressive death metal tones.”
metalinjection.net/av/new-music/chiles-bleak-flesh-craft-furious-and-melodic-tech-death-on-and-save-us-from-silence

“La invitación es a oír el disco, descubrir por sí mismos las emociones entregadas, darle más de unas vueltas, ya que cada vez se le pueden encontrar más cosas para degustar dentro. Sin duda estamos ante una obra que emana creatividad y sinergia de principio a fin, marca pauta de lo que significa no cerrarse ante paradigmas y abrirse a todas las posibilidades, un álbum que trasciende de ser el nuevo álbum, sino también, EL álbum que queda instaurado como un “Must Have” de esta generación y para las futuras.” nacionprogresiva.wordpress.com/2019/08/05/review-bleak-flesh-and-save-us-from-silence/

“Bleak Flesh es una banda que tiene conciencia de todo lo que se da allá fuera, no están conformes con ser simplemente una banda de death metal técnico; dominar varios aspectos musicales de muchos géneros es lo que los hace destacarse de la escena en este continente, orbitan y sobrepasan su propio eje al dictaminar los límites de su propia creatividad. ...And Save Us From Silence es atractivo gracias a su apropiado modelo progresivo cuyo ensamble es tan bestial como armónico, una bestia hecha para sobresalir y vencer a cualquiera que ose considerarse su competencia.”
rtmbmusic.com/reviews/3469/bleak-flesh-and-save-us-from-silence

INTERVIEWS:

Metal Injection with Matías “I think we developed a way to write songs that’s different from the current tech death bands, we try to focus on an entire piece of music that flows like a story, that type of song structure works great for building the listener’s attention, of course, there’s room for guitar leads, bass flares, crazy drums, and super vocals but… Our main goal is always to try to write cool songs—ear-catching tunes with a nice vocal concept on top.” metalinjection.net/interviews/bleak-flesh-talks-and-save-us-from-silence-their-newest-tech-death-offering

RTMB with Matías “In our case, music and lyrics are always related to elaborated concepts. It basically responds to our desire of venturing into more complex paths both musically and lyrically, we believe that there’s always a chance of going further. Therefore, the way to channel these efforts will always have a concept representing them in our music.” www.rtmbmusic.com/entrevistas/3487/bleak-flesh

Retumba Magazine "Full interview, featuring bands like Cult of Luna, Piah Mater, The Ritual Aura, Gravemind, Heaven in Arms, Amenra and more." rtmbmusic.com/articulos/3611/revista-5-edicion-cult-of-luna

Nación Progresiva with Ngen Kerruff “This feeling is the one we are trying to express through a phrase as in the end of a prayer, a prayer to an unknown god only known and seen by you and no one else. An entity of forgotten name that lays the unstoppable desire to create music in our minds. Maybe the primitive human being considers this as a divine force, a force of Nature of which few had spoken.” nacionprogresiva.wordpress.com/2019/07/05/14680/

Nación Progresiva with Marco Pitruzzella “I absolutely LOVE Bleak Flesh. I almost cannot believe I had never really heard of them until recently. They have a very unique style that nobody really plays. The closest bands I can think of are Children of Bodom and Archspire…but even those two do not sound like Bleak Flesh. They had sent me all the songs, rough draft version with basic program drumming along to the guitar part. I then would study each song and keep a lot of the same “feeling” from the program drum parts, but of course I would add my own flavor to it! But these songs are incredible and I consider this some of my best work, it will be hard to too this album!” nacionprogresiva.wordpress.com/2019/04/06/lord-marco/
