Beloved Drop First New Original Song In Nearly 2 Decades

Returning to our collective mindset here in 2021 with their first new song in almost 20 years is “Abyss” by the band Beloved. It is everything you wanted the band to sound like in 2021 and everything you’ve dreamed about for years. It certainly does live up to expectations and takes them in an entirely new yet still grasping on to pieces of the past. While I can certainly name off handfuls of bands that have recently reunited that maybe shouldn’t have, Beloved are not one of those bands.… Continued →

Song of the Day: Beloved - Before There Was You There Was Everything

Wow, what a great band, with such potential! Sadly, Beloved released only one EP (originally for Vindicated from the Deep Water and later re-issued by Solid State) and one full length. That first EP rocked my world. I got to see the band live 2 or 3 times in this era and they were rapidly becoming my favourite emo-core band. They had a truly unique take on the genre fusing melodic indie rock with emotional emo and brutal hardcore, all in one go!… Continued →

Song of the Day: Beloved (US) - Like a Song (U2 Cover)

Beloved (US) released this absolutely flawless cover of U2’s classic song, “Like a Song”, last month. It is without a doubt, one of my favorite cover songs by an artist we write about and quite simply one of the best songs of 2020. To be honest, I wasn’t as familiar with this U2 song as much as their other more famous tracks but nonetheless the band put their own unique spin on it and blew it out of the water.… Continued →

Beloved Release Best U2 Cover I've Ever Heard

There have been so many u2 cover songs over the years and u2 cover bands (you know who you are) but none as powerful as this new Beloved version. I’m sorry but I just have to say that this is the most powerful U2 cover by a rock band that I’ve ever heard! I used to think Thrush’s version of “New Years Day” was pretty awesome but this one takes the cake. The production is near perfect, all the instruments played with a certain melodic ferocity and the intensity of vocals absolutely blows me away.… Continued →

Beloved (US) Return With a Blistering and Ferocious Cover of U2

Beloved (US) are not taking a back seat to this whole 2020 fiasco of a year. They have recorded a cover of a U2 song and I assume will release it any day now. Watch the teaser clip below. This band hasn’t lost one ounce of energy since their long hiatus and the energy is even more ferocious and on fire than it was in the past. It’s almost as if some of that Advent magic is rubbing off on this Beloved sound.… Continued →

Beloved to Reunite?

Around the interwebs there are rumblings of a reunion of sorts with the band Beloved. If you’re a member of either the Old School Tooth & Nail, Labeled Podcast Group, or a few others, you may have heard about this. Would this make your day or does it not really matter? I dug “The Running Ep” and especially “Failure On”. This is one of those bands that disappeared far too soon and could have been one of the bigger acts around had they kept it going.… Continued →

Beloved - Aimless Endeavor

Today’s Video Flashback is the track “Aimless Endeavor” from the band Beloved off their 2003 Solid State release, “Failure On”. This band really perfected a style that is so prevalent in today’s music scene, yet they did it almost 10 years ago. The band was short lived however, releasing only an ep through Vindicated Records (later re-released by Solid State) and the one full length “Failure On”.… Continued →
