Godbless Thee, Mooseheart

Godbless Thee, Mooseheart's music has perplexed most of its listeners, having been caught off guard by its idiosyncratic, constantly-shifting style, The Offering webzine praising "...its sheer adventurousness... something to really nod at approvingly, if for no other reason than having the balls to be itself, to be a different beast on the outside song by song." While bands such as Mr. Bungle and Between the Buried and Me similarly cycle through an eclectic range of styles, Mooseheart's music approaches this differently, using genres as moods to convey a theatrical structure to their album ...read more

Godbless Thee, Mooseheart's music has perplexed most of its listeners, having been caught off guard by its idiosyncratic, constantly-shifting style, The Offering webzine praising "...its sheer adventurousness... something to really nod at approvingly, if for no other reason than having the balls to be itself, to be a different beast on the outside song by song." While bands such as Mr. Bungle and Between the Buried and Me similarly cycle through an eclectic range of styles, Mooseheart's music approaches this differently, using genres as moods to convey a theatrical structure to their albums, meaning that a dramatic shift in a record's storyline could mean the segue of an acoustic ballad into a chaotic heavy metal piece. Through its usage of genres as tools to convey a sense of atmosphere and mood, the band hopes to not only expand upon the possibilities of what can be done within rock music, but to tell powerful stories with said music as well.

Operated mostly by singer and main songwriter Brent Vallefuoco, Mooseheart's latest record, The Prison, Pt. I, is the first release planned in a double-record concept album very much in the same vain as The Wall, following a boy from the very beginning of his life to his final coming age. The record explores the concepts of nostalgia and the everlasting conflict between youth and maturity and its effect on the individual. While only the first half of the final product exists at this time, the second release will complete the storyline, the two records being meant to be heard together.

While Mooseheart's previous release, Higher, was praised as on a "..much more advanced level than most self-released music," The Prison, Pt I aims to accomplish far more, exchanging its progressive/space rock style for something far more experimental and unique. The release has been praised as having "…a ton of talent that shines through from beginning to end..." and being "...an interesting piece of work that brings some of the artistry back into the progressive/avant-garde style," with Vallefuoco's songwriting being lauded for its ambition and sheer audacity. The Prison, Pt. I can be streamed and purchased on Spotify, BandCamp, CD Baby, and many other sites. « hide
