The Flenser // Now Flensing - Dark Experimental Record Label
For their fifth full length The Endless, Denver, Colorado genre-defying progressive metal outfit Dreadnought present their most spellbinding musical feature yet. With riveting vocal performances, ferocious grooves, and soaring synthesis, the quartet offers a familiarity to the melodic awe of previous records Lifewoven (2013) and Bridging Realms (2015) as well as the dark complexities within A Wake In Sacred Waves (2017) and Emergence (2019), but with a beautifully fresh perspective in writing, production, and performance.
At its inception in 2012, Dreadnought’s four members, including guitarist / vocalist Kelly Schilling, drummer Jordan Clancy, bassist Kevin Handlon, and keyboardist / vocalist Lauren Vieira, strove for a project laser-focused on creativity and exploration, pulling from all aspects of their musical backgrounds to craft something exciting and unique. Joining in the common ground of extreme metal, the quartet explores a blend of prog, doom, folk, jazz, classical, black metal, and post rock.
