Frayle stream a cover version of Bauhaus classic »Bela Lugosi’s Dead«

Cleveland, Ohio based doom metal outfit Frayle stream a cover version of Bauhaus classic »Bela Lugosi’s Dead«.

»Bela Lugosi’s Dead« is the first single by the English post-punk legends Bauhaus, released in 1979 and often considered as the first gothic rock record.

The band comments: “Our cover of »Bela Lugosi’s Dead« is now available on our Bandcamp page! This song was a huge inspiration for us and we hope you like our take on it. Be sure to check out our new “Bela” t-shirt as well.”

Frayle makes music for the night sky. The group was formed in 2017 by guitarist Sean Bilovecky (formerly of now-defunct Man’s Ruin recording artists Disengage) and vocalist Gwyn Strang, a singer with an alluring voice and an equally compelling flair for imagery.

Frayle’s “lullabies over chaos” approach to songwriting allows the group the freedom to explore what is possible with heavy music; its gorgeously ominous sound a result of complex layering and tone stacking while simultaneously overseeing the perfectly delicate balance between heaving, heavy riffs and haunting vocal melodies.

With its full-length debut, »1692«, Frayle pushes the immense intensity and gorgeous ache of its unique sound and style through to uncompromising new plateaus. While there is much darkness on the record, it’s also contrasted superbly with beauty, both fragile and fierce, in a way that feels weightless rather than plummeting, as if release truly is a possibility.
