Ukraine is not a country I typically associate with metal, only band that comes to mind is Nokturnal Mortum actually. Hence it’s extra fun to find an album from an upcoming deathcore act hailing from Ukraine and might be able to put the country on the map for more metalheads. Bugs Live in My Bed formed in 2014 and has since worked to release their debut full-length Errors of God which saw it’s light in December 31st 2016. The band draws a lot of influence from the big deathcore acts (or the big 4 as some call them) Suicide Silence, Chelsea Grin, Whitechapel and Carnifex. Meaning it’s straight up deathcore, breakdowns and no clean singing.
In times when a lot of bands who created deathcore are turning away from the genre it’s sometimes nice to get an album that brings me back to the days of The Cleansing, This Is Exile and Desolation of Eden. Errors of God is a great experience that will take you back to the early deathcore era. Bugs Live in My Bed doesn’t invent anything new or lifechanging to the genre but they don’t have to. They simply needed to bring us an album to make us remember that deathcore can still be just deathcore even today. Have to be said I am not totally sold on their vocals though, in my opinion they should stick to growls and screams for future albums.
A sweet debut from Bugs Live in My Bed and the self-released Errors of God is out now!
