Bone Tower is a filthy death metal band coming from Atlantic Canada. They formed earlier this year with a defined vision - to deliver an abusive and abrasive initial offering that would be the soundtrack for the madness that has ensued on a global level over the past year and a half.
The trio of Jonas DeViller (vocals/electronics/lyrics), Sean Carroll (guitar/bass), and Michael Bowers (guitar/bass/vocals) is a seasoned one at that and they were able to quickly write and produce their debut EP “We All Will Die One Day” in two weeks. It came together as a whole very quickly and organically. They comment on the title track and punishing conclusion of the EP:
“As the namesake of the EP, you really want to make a statement. We all know you are your own worst enemy, and that’s what ‘We All Will Die One Day’ stands to shove down your throat. We’re all human, we all have shitty habits, and those practices are probably what’s gonna give us the axe one day. The 8th and final track on ‘We All Will Die One Day’ hangs around for just a measly 50 seconds (and 17 of those are sustained feedback), but packs a major punch in that short amount of time. Blistering riffs lead into a short and sweet breakdown, leaving you confused about what the heck you just listened to.”
Both sonically and lyrically, “We All Will Die One Day” represents a collective status of disarray. Challenging speed and complex rhythms serve to accelerate unfavourable emotions to the forefront of your mind. A raw and unfiltered byproduct of mental health in disarray and unfocused aggression, with no real direction on how to cope in a post-pandemic landscape.
While presented in an ugly package, these songs are a cathartic release with the intent of extinguishing deep feelings of depression and anger. Their sound is influenced most by death metal, grindcore, and hardcore and is recommended for fans of Cryptopsy, Atka, and Trap Them.

Bone Tower is the musical equivalent of the chaos ensuing globally since last year. An angry jab back at the universe for anyone who was angry and watched the world unfold with racial upheaval, conservatives and conspiracists coming out of the woodwork against Covid, economic regression with millions losing jobs, the entire world changing beneath our feet, and for the politicians who claimed to be on our side but continue to fight against the truth.

This is just the start for Bone Tower, they already have a follow-up record in the works. As of now, they are mostly a recording project but they intend on eventually playing shows. When they do finally play live, it’s bound to be just as fucked up as the recording.
EP ‘We All Will Die One Day’ is due out November 5, 2021.
