“It’s like a collision between Comus and Agalloch, and is not to be missed.” – PopMatters
“Bridging Realms must be heard, even if just the once for the experience, as, to put it simply, it’s incredible.” – Ninehertz
“Drawing influences from everything from classic ’70s prog to doom, black metal to Latin jazz and all points in between, it’s hard to know how to classify Dreadnought’s expansive and expressive sound.” – Terrorizer
Genre: Elements of progressive rock, black metal, post rock, doom, and folk
Dreadnought of Denver, Colorado finds a home in surreal atmospheres, complex, yet approachable grooves, and an immense palette of textures and moods. Collaboration and the highest quality of friendship have fashioned this quartet’s knack for contemplative songraft while also inspiring each member to bring their multi-instrumental talents to the foray, introducing mandolin, saxophone, and flute into their repertoire.
Dual female vocals embellish the group’s signature sound as a finishing touch. It’s no wonder that this foundation allows for references to classic prog rock and funk, post rock, black metal, and Latin jazz without sacrificing a sonic imprint filled with spaciousness and ether.
Appropriately Dreadnought’s lyrics capture this atmosphere with themes of the infinite and unknowable, reaching for the stars and into the depths of existence. Bridging Realms finds the band’s potential truly realized, taking its sounds into strange, undiscovered, and delightful territory.
