"VIDEO: Reflection of Flesh - "Truth Is Treason""

What do you get when you cross a Hawaiian-themed birthday party, a brewery, and a metal band? That’s exactly what we find out in the new video for Milwaukee band Reflection Of Flesh’s single, “Truth Is Treason”. The footage comes from an actual birthday party held at Indeed Brewing, and the stark contrast of a black-clad metal band among the brightly colored, balloon-filled atmosphere is enough to make the clip stand out on its own. Add in the fact that the song is absolutely brutal, with plenty of pounding bass lines and intricate guitar licks, and you’ve got a recipe for chaos. The track comes from the band’s latest EP, “Clearing The Mechanism”, and you can catch them live in Milwaukee again at Walker’s Point Music Hall on March 14th, conveniently at another birthday party show. - Breaking and Entering - Allen Halas

Reflection of Flesh is a three piece metal band from Milwaukee, WI.  They embrace the filth, desperation, and hard-working nature of Milwaukee.  Formed in March 2017, the pieces gradually came together to form their current lineup of Chris Oelke, Garrett Smith, and Phil Proite.  In May 2018, they released their debut album "City of Filth."  A wide range of musical influences has produced a unique sound driven by a devastating rhythm section, overlaid with infectious guitar grooves, and dark heavy vocals based on reality.

They pride themselves on energetic live shows, and bringing intensity to a world grown numb by misinformation, violence, and apathy.  Reflection of Flesh traveled to 14:59 Studios through two blizzards in February 2019 to record the newly released EP "Clearing the Mechanism," which was released through Zero Budget Records on May 10, 2019.  Reflection of Flesh signed with Zerobudget Records in April 2019.  After many shows in 2019, Reflection of Flesh has gone into the winter months preparing for the recording of their third release, an EP titled "Parasitic" which is scheduled to be released in November 2020 under Zerobudget Records.  March 2020, Reflection of Flesh signed with The Legend Agency for booking and management.  Due to the current COVID Pandemic, the only show played for Reflection of Flesh after March was their 66 Days & 6 Feet Apart Livestream event from The Ring Live Music at Kneeverland Productions.  In September 2020, Reflection of Flesh headed into Kneeverland Productions to track their EP "Parasitic".  It originally had been planned to be released in December 2020, but with some of the members getting COVID, and mixing across state lines, "Parasitic" was finally released February 14th, 2021.  The EP contains 3 brand new songs, 1 rerecorded song, as well as 3 live tracks from the livestream event in July 2020.  Toledo Deathfest 2021 has been confirmed for Reflection of Flesh for August 14th, 2021.  Also, plans for a co-headlining national tour at the end of October through the end of November is in the works.
