REVIEWS:

"It makes me proud to hear this EP. These guys are amazing people and musicians, creating truly unique and inspiring Death Metal. Fans of original and slightly experimental sounds with great melody and groove, this band is for you!" 9.5/10 badgersmetalbreakdown.com/2017/04/11/bleak-flesh-overcoming-reality-9-510-m/

"Overcoming Reality toma al género por sorpresa y me deja la certeza que acaparara la atención de muchos otros terrenos del metal. Un gran logro para la escena de Chile pero al carajo, a todos acá nos gusta verlo como una comunidad y sé de antemano que muchos veremos esto como un gran lanzamiento para el metal latinoamericano en general." 9.2/10 reviewstomyblood.blogspot.cl/2017/04/resena-bleak-flesh-overcoming-reality.html

"The Cover Art is Great. This EP really magnificent, combine Progressive, Djent, Neoclassical and Electronic music perfectly."
Score: 100% www.bdpmetal.net/2017/04/reviews-bleak-flesh-overcoming-reality.html?m=1

"One of those bands that can play to a variety of extreme metal fans, Overcoming Reality is a sweeping piece of death metal that carries along progressive and technical tones. No shortage of melody to be found, though melodeath seems a ways from this act with a sound so intense. A barrage of speed, catchy grooves, the right amount of progressive noodling, a diverse vocal palette (both cleans/growls), and well-integrated symphonic elements all serve to point towards Bleak Flesh being a real up-and-comer in the genre. A surprisingly diverse EP worth seeking out." deadrhetoric.com/features/sifting-through-bandcamp-april-2017/

"Another, excellent and awesome release coming from the underground is the new EP, "Overcoming Reality" from Chilean metal band Bleak Flesh (they meld progressive and technical aspects with a death metal aesthetic). I am digging the, from what it looks like to me anyway, homage to "Ghost In The Shell" (one of my all time favorite movies -the 1995 version) in the cover-art and lyrical themes. These guys are brilliant, and know what the hell they're doing. The playing is fantastic, hellish, yet controlled, heavy yet nuanced. Ripping guys, just ripping!! -Joe \m/" www.facebook.com/KeepTheMetalFlowing/

"Bleak Flesh sound better than ever before, and Overcoming Reality seems to be the start of a great new direction for them. They’ve trimmed the fat from their music and shaken things up stylistically, and it has more than paid off" www.toiletovhell.com/tech-death-thursday-bleak-flesh/

"Death metal técnico, así es como los chicos de Bleak Flesh autodefinen su música, lo cierto, es que son mucho más que eso. Overcoming Reality el nuevo EP llega para darnos un bálsamo de brutalidad, shredding y blast beats, sin olvidar la simpleza y el pragmatismo. Toda esta compleja y ecléctica estructura musical va hilvanando el camino para un potente mensaje existencialista." nacionprogresiva.wordpress.com/2017/05/29/review-overcoming-reality-de-bleak-flesh/

"Si ya con el anterior álbum del 2014 “Trascendence”, los nacionales de Bleak Flesh te ponían el pie sobre el cráneo a la hora de demostrar la calidad de su técnico death metal, con este nuevo intento “Overcoming Reality” era de esperar que no fuera menos que aquel. Y es que ahora, en casi media hora de música los santiaguinos mantienen la misma tónica de ese estilo elegante y variado, con riffs afilados y blast beats endemoniadamente inesperados (tener un batero como Sebastián Vidal sin duda que es prenda de garantía para cualquiera) por lo que con este nuevo álbum no puedes sino esperar todo un festín de técnica y groove a raudales." mundorockheavy.blogspot.cl/2017/05/bleak-flesh-overcoming-reality.html

"Overcoming Reality mantiene una total coherencia, mostrando total unión entre arte gráfico, contenido musical y desglose lírico, presentándonos una placa sobresaliente con respecto a la primera mitad de este año 2017." discordancia.cl/discos/bleak-flesh-overcoming-reality-2017.html?platform=hootsuite

Track Name: Overcoming Reality
Without limitations
A new era of improvement rises
Unveiling the secrets

Our reality is crafted by
Our finite trip through this garden of mayhem!

What if we could overcome reality
What if we could improve the original design of our
Physical existence

What make us different from any other living being?
The ability to overcome reality?
The ambition to expand our perception?
The courage to see through the veil of our creation?

Without limitations
A new era of improvement rises
Unveiling the secrets
Of our creation

Now is time to evolve!
To be more of what we are supposed to be
Now is time to overcome reality

Ambition and courage
We can exceed
The capacities of mankind
Track Name: Expanding the Existence
Far in the ashes of time
Something rises from the dark

And its now
Crawling and erupting
Emerging like an alive disease

Timeless ancient life form
Now directing our machines

Biomechanic devices inserting fluids
To annihilate the human life form

Late to see
Now is time to be
Our creation is completed

Circuits
And their flesh are blending and coming to us
Like an alive disease
An Army
Made to conquer, erupting and spreading at will

Expanding the existence
Track Name: Galactic Monolith
Consciousness rooted in deep feelings
Dark as the whole space
Allows me to see through the folds
Of geometric certainties

I want to know
I want to understand

Fast than dark matter, between the fog of the unknown
Appears in front of me the farthest monolith
Sowed by the first, or the last remains of humanity
Telling me the mysteries of the ancient ones

I want to know
I want to understand

What truth is

Cryptic annotations flow through my hands
Ancient hieroglyphs that shine in purple and green
My eyes cannot grasp the teachings
Of this galactic monolith

It was an unhinged travel until here
Breaking the boundaries of reality

And now I’m placed in front this stone
Trying to understand a black hole

And it says
And it says nothing
Track Name: Sunshine
The end is approaching
A silent damnation
Revealing the future
Of mankind's survival

Fading heat and light through
the emptiness of space
Shutting down the machinery of life
We are approaching to the eternal night

Hope. My time for the future
Resistance. The last breath
Endure. The final task to accomplish
Approach. Our dying star
Reveal. Our final plan
Drop. The last power of earth
Star. Enlightning the sun
Light . Surviving at last!

I can see the sun
I can see the dying light

I can see the sun
I can reach the beating heart in our quest to survive
Track Name: Radial Velocity
I'm entering into an irregular orbit
Increasing speed
Anomalous trajectory

Descending through a dense atmosphere
Tormented by this gravity

Blinded by this unknown pressure

Rising structures
Destroying and evaporating
Creating and absorbing

Rising structures
Destroying and evaporating

Old paradigm of collapsed behavior
Track Name: The Spectral Path
Arrange that set of portals in their demential order
Transcribe those words silenced for eons
Prepare yourself for a journey to a damned place in space
That will never be registered in a map for centuries

The way to the stars

Is defined by ancient generations
Of men and women tortured by curiosity
Their spectrums lie in those forbidden words

You must fortify your mind to follow
The spectral path

They will guide you
To this journey
Your old life ends now

Now
Time to run, time for fear
Your spectral path is now unleashed
