Weaving elements of doom and black metal into exhaustive, dynamic songs, BEREFT were eager to bring “Lands” vision to life and headed to Backroom Studios in Rockaway, NJ to track the album with Kevin Antreassian (Dillinger Escape Plan).

Having recently parted ways with their drummer, founding members Zach Johnson (vocals/guitars), Alex Linden (vocals/guitars) and bassist Cade Gentry enlisted the help of Michael Kadnar (Downfall of Gaia, Black Table, The Number 12 Looks Like You) to record drums for the new album. “The recording sessions couldn’t have gone smoother “, commented Kadner, “I’ve been a big Dillinger Escape plan fan for years, so it was pretty surreal to work with Kevin. He’s a phenomenal engineer and also the most down to earth, funny and welcoming dude you’ll meet“.

Following the completion of recording, BEREFT began the search for a permanent drummer. It didn’t last long, however, when long-time friend and gear-head Jerry McDougal joined. “We’ve known Jerry for a few years.” informed Johnson. “He has been nothing but stunning behind the kit. His work as alter ego Satyrnine Amplification has been increasingly helpful for our sound as a band and we’re ecstatic about his presence and talent in our collective.”

McDougal adds, “I first met the guys at a rehearsal complex we shared. They caught wind of my gear-headed nature, which struck up some great conversations. One thing lead to another and here we are. I feel extremely honored and grateful to be part of Bereft, and can’t wait to see what crazy adventures await us on the road”.
