With deep old-school heavy metal roots and a fresh modern sound, German headbangers Bahadur dropped their EP Rebirth on the 13th of October 2023. Mixing their influences and creating a uniquely heavy sound, Bahadur takes us on an irresistible headbanging experience in Rebirth. Let me tell you more about it.
Bahadur kickstarted Rebirth with the heavy, hard-hitting By Your Side, a slow banger with dense riffs and blasting drums that set the mood for a heavy EP to come. It has a pounding sound and aggressively expressive vocals that were perfectly mixed with melodic guitars in a groovy flow, creating a changing structure with dynamic twists and turns that had me hooked and headbanging, amazing opener. Until I Flip hits next with a faster, more groovy approach that takes the EP’s energy to the next level showing Bahadur‘s diverse writing styles. Its relentless flow and consistent grinding will get the listeners at the edge of their seats, while its unstoppable groove keeps on hitting harder and pushing towards heavier and more engaging sound. Cracks in Your Shield comes with a big sound and storming melodic flow, ending the EP on a high note while introducing a new chapter in Bahadur‘s sound. It offers a darker and more emotional sound than its predecessors, fueled by storming melodic riffs and intense breakdowns, creating an extremely energetic yet deeply touching mix.
Rebirth is a brief, solid EP that shows Bahadur‘s diverse, interesting writing clearly, turning listeners into fans in just 3 songs. They have a heavy intense sound with a good sense of melody and direction, making each song feel like a specially handcrafted piece. I’ll definitely be looking forward to more from Bahadur, keep on rocking guys. Cheers!
