In the depths of lockdown, in search of meaning and metal, two friends set about gathering a band of strangers with the same vision - to make metal with meaning and inspire others along the way. One by one the band came together, each with the same desire and a unique set of skills and stories.

Some of the pack have many notches on their belts, and some are fresh off the mark. But they all have one thing in common - inspiration.

Bring to Bear combines the ethereal tones of lead singer Izabela with the harsh growls of keyboard-accordionist Ian, using the raw power of drummer Simon as the backbone for an aggressive and solid metal pack comprising guitarists Hristo and Nik, and their mystery bassist. Guitars swap between lead and rhythm, often play fighting with accordion and keys, to create strong melodies and plenty of opportunities to head-bang.

Bring to Bear seeks authenticity and meaning through music that gives a feeling of adventure, discovery, and courage. They love the adventure of going after their dreams and inspiring others to do the same. For Bring to Bear this is the music, but what will their music inspire you to do?
