Ever wondered what it feels like to get smashed by a ten ton hammer? Or witness a burning plane crash into a building...

Face BEAR, an Antwerp-based 4 piece. Conspired in 2010 they set out to bring audible fury to the masses.

About 103 twisted breaks and turns later their first cub saw the burning rays of sunlight in the form of a 5 track MCD 'ABSTRACTIONS' which was self released. And later on became digitally available on Conspiracy records.

BEAR spends the rest of 2010 playing numerous shows, including a UK tour with While She Sleeps. The band recieved loads of great reviews in

Metal Hammer/Rocksound/Mindview on their MCD and dropping jaws on the way with their high energy driven and destructive live performance.

By the end of 2010 their efforts got rewarded with a record deal!

BEAR is VERY proud to announce they signed with LET IT BURN RECORDS, who re-released ABSTRACTIONS which was re-mastered for extra heavyness and fitted with new artwork.

The band recorded their debut album DORADUS in March 2011 @ Red Left Hand studio with Sven Jansssens and was mastered by Alan Douches (Converge, Dillinger Escape Plan, Mastodon, ... ) @ West West Side Music.

DORADUS hit the stores begin October. Packed with high calibre screaming, raging drums and twisted riffage, it promised to be one of the heaviest albums of 2011.

And it delivered. Rated high in Metal Hammer, Aardschok and various international e-zines DORADUS shows the world that BEAR is coming hard.

'WRECKTHINGS', the first single of the record, hit the internet a month before the release of DORADUS. Along with an epileptic videoclip it gives a taste of the mayhem to come. Check it out online NOW!!!

In 2012 they opened for Periphery in AB Brussels and later that year for Textures. Also BEAR was one of the few Belgian bands to perform at the widely reknown Groezrock festival.

Oh and by the way...

OBEY THE F///ING BEAR!!!
