The Bunny The Bear‘s new album A Liar Wrote this, sees the harsh vocals of Matthew “The Bunny” Tybor combine with his new bear, Haley “The Bear 4.0” Roback. She brings a beautiful element to the band, without taking anything away from the experimental metal sound they have achieved.

The whole album combines many sounds: dark heavy screams, a melodic female vocal, metal and electronic, and elements of symphonic metal, giving it an epic feel. This even goes as far as to make every track different. You can’t get bored of this record as each song introduces something new.

Vows‘, the opening track, shows no sign of The Bear 4.0, as it is only 24 seconds of gentle guitar and screamed vocals. The second track, ‘Love, Trust and Compromise‘, kicks straight in with the female vocal introducing her early on.

The next track, ‘Curtain Call‘, is loaded with raw emotion. The screams portray a pain similar to those in Bring Me The Horizon‘s ‘Blessed With A Curse‘ and really tug at the heartstrings of anyone listening. While ‘Empty Hands‘ is another emotional track, it achieves this in a much softer way. It introduces an instrumental line comprised mainly of piano and brings in the melodic male vocals.

Sick Sad Eyes‘ is one of the heavier tracks, contrasting the emotion of previous track ‘Curtain Call’. We also get to really see Haley’s talents for the first time as she shows of her range in a powerful clean way.

As far as the instruments go, ‘Oblivion‘ is one of the best tracks on the album, featuring a stand out guitar solo. Often the guitars and drums work together to create a fast paced metal backing to the varying vocals, but occasionally the song calls for something slower, which is achieve with equal talent.

This record is hard to compare to any one band, given its constant changes. It still hold a sense of coherency with both vocalists distinct sounds tying everything together. Showing off all of the talents and ranges of the band, it’s a great listen from start to end.
