Bewilderbiest (Intronaut, Absymal Dawn, Ex-The Faceless) Change Name To Bereft


Bereft has been chosen as the new moniker for the outfit now formerly known as Bewilderbiest. The group feature members of Intronaut, Abysmal Dawn and now former The Faceless vocalist Derek Rydquist within their ranks.

Currently they are offering a stream of their new song “<>Withered Efflorescence” via Facebook in exchange for a ‘like.’ In addition to that, the band will be playing their debut show at the Handbag Factory in Los Angeles, CA on September 30th.

For now, vocalist/guitarist Charles Elliot offered the following on the song:

“This will give everyone a taste of what this band is about; dark, depressing, doom. Definitely different from what we do in our usual bands. It’s heavy as hell and we’re all really proud how the record and collaboration came out, and we hope people feel the same way.

On this particular track Sacha and Derek D. worked together on the music while Derek R. and I worked on the lyrics. I’ve always envisioned vocal tradeoffs with Sacha on this one, ever since the demo he sent me years ago, so that’s what you hear on the chorus.

This project has been on the back burner since 2008, so we hope people enjoy finally listening to it as much as we do. Come check out our first show ever at The Handbag Factory this month in Los Angeles!”
