Bereft – Leichenhaus


Bereft is a Los Angeles based melodic sludgy doom band featuring Sacha Dunable of Intronaut and Graviton, Derek Donley of National Sunday Law and Graviton, Charles Elliott of Abysmal Dawn and ex-The Faceless vocalist Derek Rydquist. Bereft released its first track “Withered Efflorescence” exclusively via their Facebook page in early September 2011 to rave reviews and online buzz, followed by their debut live show September 30 in Los Angeles, CA. Elliott has stated that Bereft is all 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 of how the record and collaboration came out, and we hope people feel the same way.” The debut album is called “Leichenhaus” and is a conceptual album thematically revolving around a waiting mortuary.

“Real music is birthed from pain, hatred, despair, suffering and regret… and this is our bastard child.”
