Bleak is a four piece band from Syracuse, NY who formed in early 2014 from the looks of things.  Bleak play an insanely brutal style of music that incorporates elements of hardcore, punk, post hardcore, and sludge within their sound.  Bleak features TJ Calandra, who most notably played guitar in Architect.  Musically, Bleak can be said to be influenced by bands such as Botch, Coalesce, Engineer, Achilles, Converge, and Neurosis.  Since their inception in 2014, Bleak have released a self-titled five song EP in September of 2014 and a split 7" with PA's Sovereign.  We Deserve Our Failures is Bleak's debut seven song full-length LP, which was released via Hex records on August 14th, 2015.  On We Deserve Our Failures, Bleak offer up seven tracks of extremely well played hardcore, punk, and sludge.  Overall. We Deserve Our Failures is one of my favorite albums that have come out all summer and you'd be insane to not give this album a listen.  Seriously, it's that good.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!
