Beecher biography
BEECHER is a progressive metal band from Manchester, United Kingdom consisting of Charles Edward Godby (vocals), Mark James Lyons (guitars) and David William Hopkinson (bass).

They recorded a couple of demo's in 2001 "Demo 1" and "Demo 1.5" with Daniel Plant (guitar) and Will Shaw (drums). They released an EP "Resention is a Big Word in a Small Town" on In at the Deep End Records in February of 2002, as well as a 7" inch split with Leif Ericsson called "Malfunction" the same month.

They released their debut album "Breaking the Fourth Wall" on Calculated Risk Products in June of 2003 which would be re-issued with bonus tracks by Earache Records in 2005. The album would also be re-released as a transparent vinyl by Calculated Risk Products in 2005. Daniel Plant and Will Shaw would leave the band shortly after this release and they would be replaced by Daniel Shaw and Daniel Jones.

In 2005, they released their second full length album "This Elegy, His Autopsy" on Earache Records. This album was also released as a limited edition vinyl box set that was limited to 1,000 copies.

They disbanded in January of 2006. David Hopkinson and Ed Godby currently play in a classic rock band THE FREEZING FOG; And Daniel Jones is currently playing drums in the progressive instrumental band DAY FOR AIRSTRIKES.

WHY THIS BAND IS IN THE ARCHIVES:

BEECHER plays a ferocious, but listenable blend of metal, punk, noise and progressive rock. They were approved by the Prog Metal Team and are highly recommended.

Breaking The Fourth Wall
Beecher Experimental/Post Metal

Review by Lezaza

2 stars The full length debut "Breaking the Fourth Wall" by Beecher really showed what they would ultimately(before tragically disbanding) become on their following release "This Elegy, His Autopsy",

The music sounds similar to The Dillinger Escape Plan and The Number Twelve Looks Like You, but with less finesse and more ferocity. It's hardcore with noise, metalcore and tech-like influences thrown into the mix.

While this album is rather good, it both pales in comparison with the follow up and suffers from a bad case of unclear direction with some really painful songs that feel out of place and very, VERY repetitive, much unlike "This Elegy, His Autopsy". There's also a problem with the length of the album, by the start of the album I always get absorbed by the fantastic vibe and energy Beecher express but as it goes on its hard to maintain this enthusiasm as the songs are rather similar in sound and structure.

An album that has amazing ups and equal downs. Very much a first record with all that it implies. A great start for a band that could have changed the face of tech metal as we know it. Well worth buying if you love the genre and should probably be avoided by those who don't.

2/5

This Elegy, His Autopsy
Beecher Experimental/Post Metal

Review by Lezaza

3 stars It feels strange to be the first one to rate a record here on progarchives. Obviously someone cared enough about this band to request an add and also fill in the blanks for a biography and so on, yet it remains unrated.

Beecher's "This Elegy, His Autopsy" is an oldie-but-goodie from when I was a teenager and a musical period when I favored rhythmical hysteria and atonal riffs over anything else. I found Beecher on some sordid mix tape and instantly felt at home within their extremely noisy and aggressive tech/hardcore(closest thing to a genre brand I can come).

"This Elegy, His Autopsy" is interestingly more gritty and violent than their previous release "Breaking the Fourth Wall" which still had many moments of metalcore-like melody and harmony. Unlike most bands who turn to please a broader audience with a more radio friendly sound on their second album, Beecher dived deeper into their hardcore and noise roots. The result is astonishing, an album with fantastic kick and intensity. Sadly Beecher disbanded a few years ago and never had the chance to further explore the realms of what this strange blend of styles and skill could further evolve into.

As I listen to this album six years later I understand that I've outgrown it all somehow. I still feel at home within the screeches and howls, but that deeper sense of appreciation I felt then is now gone.

"This Elegy, His Autopsy" is an album for fans of extreme music stemming from hardcore and punk. For all you others; you are better of trying to find a door in to this genre from a more melodic source(SikTh is a great example of this).

A great album but mostly for fans of the genre!

3/5
