"Here Is Bestial Mouths' New Record"

Bestial Mouths, the industrial electro-goth foursome from Los Angeles, do a pretty great job of creating carnal, post-punk beats that make you feel oh so dirty, yet oh so right. They just sent us their upcoming self-titled LP, the next offering after their 2011 debut, Hissing Veil. Their LP is slated for release on June 25th through Clan Destine Records, but you can get a sneak peak and stream their new album right here. Seriously, if Lynette Cerezo’s screeching vocals don’t paralyze you with overwhelming paranoia then you’re probably a sociopath. - Noisey-Vice.com


"Premiere: Bestial Mouths, “Earth”"

n the unsettling video for Bestial Mouths' "Earth", banshee commander Lynette Cerezo is transformed into an extraterrestrial earthling from another world. Found on their earth-quaking self-titled, director Niko Sonnberger summons a latent primordial fear of the unknown by colliding gnostic superstitions with the untold dangers of trying to confine, manipulate, and control a bestial and wild new found species.

The opening video static frame shots of desert rock formations, a barren swimming pool followed by a hand picking up a globe device initiate a view of a world as familiar, as it is foreign and outright frightening. The fear stems from the upward standing strands of spikes from Lynette's spine, as her blue hued creature creation is chased across the cactus brushed canyons. Her song rings out to her soon to be captors in a loveless desert habitat, as the video switches from high-definition film to cut transitions framed like the documented evidence of personal handicams for anthropological-scientific research and study.

Caught in a net and left mercilessly in an unsecured pool, her captors heed not their alien's siren song of warning. As drums crash in time to the sound of bells cut loose from their church tower prisons; Lynette's matching grey and black coordinated bandmate minders of Christopher Myrick, Gustavo Aldana, and Jessica Reuter mess with blood extracted samples and powers from the occultist force from an ancient bound book with a triangle shape on the cover. Speaking chants recited in unison, their experiments go awry when the book is handed to the long finger-nailed grasp of their captive specimen. Without giving too much away, the vicious transformation and retaliation occurs in a way that brings forth the epitome of the band's moniker and a statement of caution to the ears and minds that cannot hear nor see.

Frontwoman Lynette Cerezo, with Bestial Mouths bandmates Gustavo Aldana, and Jessica Reuter gave us an exclusive behind the scenes peak at the making of their video for "Earth".

Lynette: The making of 'Earth' was definitely an intense and grueling physical process for me, but I enjoyed the challenging transformation. Call time was at 3am and I had to be airbrushed blue outside in the cold. Maybe I was blue from hypothermia as well. Once in full makeup I couldn't do anything because of the nails. In that way I did feel like a helpless, strange alien. Working with Niko and her talented crew is a honor and it was so cool to watch her vision unfold.

Jessica: Taking Lynette to the shooting location in Joshua Tree was an experience. We had to put her in a giant sun hat and robe to hide the blue weirdness from any park rangers- it was like dressing up E.T. Filming was arduous at times, but Bestial Mouths videos have to be at least a little painful or else the sentiment is lost! The desert backdrop was perfect for the tone of the song, though…desolate but warm. We love working with Niko and her crew- they're really some of the most hard-working, wonderful people you could ever hope to encounter…and the fact that they're into creepy, unsettling aesthetics just seals the deal.

Gus: Niko crafted an amazing narrative and is really able to capture the unsettling qualities of our music. I feel extremely fortunate to be able to collaborate with someone who understands and is able to negotiate our aesthetic so fully. The way she imagines and crafts the ideas and images of the video are really fitting to the song. She truly understands how to create a disturbing atmosphere and that is very important as part of our mission with music is to make people feel a disturbance; we hope our sounds and words inspire raw emotions and visceral reactions and Niko is fantastic at stimulating those kinds of reactions with her directorial vision.

Bestial Mouths' self-titled is available now from Clan Destine. - Impose Magazine


"CVLT Nation Interviews: Bestial Mouths"

“Anything that can be too easily described doesn’t need to be recreated. If the vocabulary already exists, it’s redundant.”

Anyone who has spent any time on the internet in the last decade knows how quickly one’s perception of an object, person, or event can shift from familiar to strange – and, arguably, it is this moment of jarring unfamiliarity that we all seek whenever we flip through TV channels or browse the internet – that which can, in some respect, shake us from our routines. Like the terrifying man behind the diner in David Lynch’s film Mulholland Drive, L.A.’s Bestial Mouths embody a surreal and vaguely menacing state of strange. - CVLT NATION


"CARVED SOULS "Whispers""

CARVED SOULS/Whispers: If no stalgia is good stalgia, then this contemporary take on dark wave synth pop will be welcomed by kids that don't want to listen to New Order because their parents did. More like a trip through the sewers to escape the monsters under the bed than a trip through Hell or Berlin, these cats that originally got together to make commercials and industrial soundtracks have done a fine job in turning their energy into making those Freddy v Jason soundscapes that ring in your head and keep you up at night. The really cool element in this mix is these cats are making music that doesn't pander or talk down to the listener. That move really separates the whet from the chaff. Check it out.

"CARVED SOULS "Whispers""

Project originally designed to perform music for short films or commercials, training Carved Souls who began his adventure in 2003, is clearly looking at other tracks including that of producing music for music. Operating in a parallel universe where the atmosphere is built on the roots of the eighties, made the rock ranges from synth-pop and darkwave through the new-wave and medium Batcave expensive to Executive Slacks orAlien Sex Fiend .

In fact the music of our American friends (Los Angeles, California) is especially apparent in bands like Depeche mode , Erasure , Face ,Yazoo or New Order , all typical figures of rock movements of the 80s synths and drum machine highlighted, training supported by Sweden (vocals), Legion(keyboards), Gotham (bass and keyboards) and Krz (percussion), transcribed perfectly the atmosphere created by all these groups that made the happiness of the students evenings. Further categories already mentioned, we also noticed some more air passages where, keyboards depart on the air.

Constructing a sound dark-underground , the compositions are catchy enough and even dance, sometimes approaching ambient. Having already behind three albums (2011 to 2015), Carved Souls delight all nostalgic for the good times, that of the new-wave or cold-wave. Continuing the tradition of above mentioned groups, synths and electronic percussion we bring this little vintage side 80, which bring back memories for some. - MUSIC IN BELGIUM


"CARVED SOULS Whispers"

Make some noise

The band ‘Carved Souls’ are true sloggers. In only five years since their band foundation, they are presenting their fourth album called ‘Whispers‘. I always published their music videos on this website, but I never did an album review so far. Personal comment on ‘Carved Souls’: “You must definitely improve your press and promotion work!” - Electrozombies
