Mythless, the new outfit from former Fang Island singer/guitar player Jason Bartell, release their debut EP, Patience Hell, on March 16 via Joyful Noise Recordings.
Stream “PO,” the lead track on the four-song EP, below with a visualizer created by Andreas Wannerstedt. “Sonically, ‘PO’ really exemplifies the whole project,” Bartell explains. “Droning sheets of sound slowly build, and a story unfolds. There’s a hook about a probation officer, hence the title.”
Patience Hell, which exists at the intersection of trance-metal and meditative-hardcore, also features the shredding, drone-like drums of fellow Fang Islander Marc St. Sauveur. “Fang was a band of friends, and sometimes friends just grow in different directions,” says Bartell, of the demise of the critically-lauded quartet. “Once things slowed down and eventually stopped, it became more imperative for me to have an outlet, so I started to focus on Mythless.”
